Teacher of History Maternity Cover (0.6)

Kent College Pembury excels in adding value to its pupils both academically and pastorally. An enthusiastic and well qualified History specialist is required to join a successful and supportive department to cover maternity leave (0.6).  Applicants need to be confident in teaching History from Year 7 to A level.

History is an important and successful subject in the school curriculum; all girls study History until the end of Year 9 and it is a popular option at both GCSE and A level.  Examination results are consistently very good; in 2014 and 2015 a 100% pass rate was achieved at A, A/S and GCSE. In 2014, 100% of our A level girls gained A* - A grades and over half of our GCSE candidates obtained A*or A grades.   At Advanced level students follow the new Edexcel Linear History specification, studying units on The American Dream 1917-76, South Africa 1948-94 and associated controversies in the UK 1760-1830.  Coursework focuses on race relations in the US 1877-1981.  At GCSE, Edexcel’s International GCSE specification is followed, with the examined units being on Germany, 1918-45; the Cold War 1945-62; and the fall of Communism in Europe 1979-91 and the Arab-Israeli Conflict 1918-1994.   At Key Stage Three, lessons follow a chronological approach starting with units about medieval England and then moving through topics concerning the Reformation in Europe and England, the English Civil War, slavery, the age of empire, and the industrial revolution; in Year 9 units on the First and Second World Wars and their significance are studied.  

Field trips are undertaken and recent visits and those planned include: Lewes, Rochester, Battle, London, the National Archives, the Imperial War Museum, Berlin and Ypres, and the Somme.
