We are looking for a dynamic Historian; eager to inspire our bright and receptive pupils.
History is an extremely popular and respected subject at the College, and the Department has a long tradition of excellence, including in public exams. The History Department is friendly and well-established, comprising an experienced staff of 5 teachers, including two Housemasters and the Deputy Head (Academic). The Department works very well as a team and the successful candidate will be encouraged and supported to contribute to its dynamic, collaborative and creative approach.
Most pupils choose History at IGCSE, so there are 4 class sets in each of Years 10 and 11. History is also one of the school's most popular subjects in the Sixth Form, with 3 class sets in each of Years 12 and 13. Examination results are consistently outstanding and well above national averages. In 2020, 88% of College pupils in History achieved A*-B at A-Level, with 63% gaining A*-A (from a cohort of 32). This attainment was not untypical; in the 3 years prior to Covid (2017-2019), 88% of College pupils in History secured A*-B at ALevel, with 56% awarded A*-A (from a combined cohort of 127).
Would you like to contribute to this success? Why not consider joining our community. We welcome applications from both new and experienced teachers.
