Who we are:

We are an ambitious and forward thinking history department with a large uptake at GCSE and A Level.  At A Level we offer history and government & politics and many of our Year 13s leave us to carry on their studies in history at top universities including Oxford and Cambridge.

As a department we have an invaluable role to play in the Academy’s vision of creating a culture of understanding of and respect for others.  By showing students where we have come from through the events of the past we hope to foster considerate, creative and innovative minds able to analyse and fairly judge people and events.  The department is tireless in its striving to widen the experience and knowledge of the students and engages outside speakers (notably: The United States Ambassador to the U.K, Holocaust survivors, local and national politicians, people with first-hand experience of war and occupation from Israel and Palestine) and has a programme of trips and visits to bring the history being studied alive (notably: Medieval castles, WWI Battlefields, Auschwitz, Tower of London, Hampton Court and Canterbury Cathedral).  

Southfields Academy is a thriving non-selective secondary academy located in south west London. It has recently undergone complete redevelopment and benefits from the cutting edge in sporting facilities, art, design & vocational technology facilities, spacious and bright communal areas and classrooms. All of which are equipped with the latest technology and designed by our staff and students to ensure their fitness for purpose to educate the children of today and future-proofed for the children of tomorrow.

Who we are looking for:

We are looking for a motivated and inspiring teacher to lead the delivery history to students across the age and ability range of Years 7 – 13.  The ideal candidate will be able to use creativity to develop rich and exciting collaborative projects that link curriculum areas.  They will be ambitious and adaptable, with excellent planning and classroom management skills.
