KS2 Classics Teacher (Ancient History and Latin)

Pimlico PrimaryWestminster

WHO WE ARE

Pimlico Primary is a state-funded primary school based in the heart of Westminster in central London.

We are part of Future Academies, a multi-academy trust which includes three primary schools and seven secondary schools in and around London. We are motivated by a mission of social change and reducing educational inequality: our school and Trust are unique in our approach to a knowledge-rich curriculum, and in our strong emphasis on raising children’s aspirations and outcomes through the teaching of classical and traditional subjects. Our children study a bespoke curriculum developed by writers at our Curriculum Centre, which places a focus on developing their cultural literacy and their awareness of the forces, words and events that have shaped our society today.  We subject-specialise at primary level, meaning that our primary children are taught by several different subject experts, as they would be in the private sector. Our schools serve children from the most socially deprived communities: our teachers can therefore make a dramatic impact on the lives of these children.

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR

We are seeking a bright, passionate and socially minded individual to join our team to teach Ancient History and Latin. This is an exciting role for an already experienced Teacher or Unqualified Teacher who wishes to gain experience working within a primary school setting. 

As the successful applicant, you will demonstrate:

  • A strong academic record, with a 2:1 degree or above in Classics, History or a related subject from Oxford, Cambridge or another leading university.
  • Great passion for your subject. 
  • The enthusiasm and energy required to work with the children and young people in our schools.
  • An unwavering belief in the power of education to change lives. Our Trust’s motto is libertas per cultum (freedom through education). We expect all teachers to share in, and feel empowered by, this concept.

WHY CHOOSE US? 

  • The opportunity to teach your subject(s) and only your subject(s). Unlike other state primary schools, we expect our teachers to be experts in their subjects, and we offer teachers the opportunity to explore further their love for their subject and to deepen their subject knowledge. 
  • Fast career progression. Because knowledge and intelligence, rather than length of service, are lauded and rewarded at Churchill Gardens, teachers can quickly take up great responsibility, leading a department, joining the SLT or writing for the Trust’s Curriculum Centre, where our in-house textbooks are produced. 
  • The chance to make a difference to children’s lives. We serve children from socially deprived communities: our teachers can therefore make a dramatic impact on the lives of these children.
