Are you our new History teacher? The post is full time and permanent and is available from 1 September 2018.
We are a successful and heavily oversubscribed 11-18 co-educational, Church of England, comprehensive school of over 1700 students, serving families from the whole of greater Bristol and beyond. We are located at the heart of the city and have a diverse student community with considerable parental support. Our diversity is a strength and something we celebrate. The Redcliffe Sixth Form Centre currently houses more than 600 students taken from our own school and from many other schools across the City.
The School is proud of its academic record, and 84% of grades were at grade C/Level 4 or above (up from 78%) this summer. 87% achieved a Level 4 or above (equivalent to a C) in English and Maths. Sixth Form results are also outstanding with a 99% pass rate and 81% at grade C or above. 32% got A* and A grades (up 5%). Most Sixth Form students continue on to Higher Education, including 9 taking up Oxbridge places this year.
The School was judged in January 2012 and again in April 2015 to be outstanding by Ofsted, and outstanding in our church school (SIAMS) inspection, in each and every category. Ofsted judged Leadership and Management, Behaviour and Safety of Pupils, Quality of Teaching, Achievement of Pupils, and Sixth Form Provision, all as Outstanding.
History is one of three subjects within our Humanities faculty, which also includes RE and Geography. Humanities is an outstanding faculty with an exceptional team of teachers who enjoy working collaboratively and have helped to lead learning across the School and the city. The exam results of the three Humanities subjects are among the best in the School and take up at both GCSE and A Level underlines the high regard in which the Faculty is held by the students.
We are proud of the wide range of enrichment opportunities that are offered to students by the History team, including: our Year 8 Local History focus for Activities Week; Year 9 Battlefields trip; our GCSE trip to London and our A Level students’ work as part of the Holocaust Educational Trust.
What we're looking for
We seek to appoint a member of staff able to teach History to Key Stage 5. The ability to offer at least one other Humanities subject (i.e. R.E. or Geography) to Key Stage 3 is essential.
