We have recently made the transition from a middle school to a secondary with a new Key Stage 4 provision and plans for future growth. Our Humanities Department aims to provide all pupils with an appreciation for the wider world and help them apply their life experiences to broaden their understanding.

‘Teaching and Learning is improving rapidly because of powerful leadership. Students behave very well around the school, have positive attitudes towards their learning and feel safe.’ 

We are very optimistic about the future so if you feel inspired to be part of this journey and believe that all young people can achieve high standards, we want to hear from you.

  • teach History to GCSE level; the ability to also teach Geography would be advantageous;

  • contribute to the further development of a strong and forward-looking team;
  • be innovative in their techniques to motivate and inspire young people;
  • build positive relationships with staff, pupils and parents alike.
