Do you have what it takes to work one of the top five performing schools in the Humber region?  If so, we want you!

We seek to appoint a passionate, dedicated and highly motivated Teacher of Humanities at Baysgarth School with the skills and experience to deliver successful outcomes from KS3 to KS4. We are looking to appoint a colleague with a background in either Religious Education or Geography.

A stone’s throw from the heart of the UK’s City of Culture for 2017, overlooking one of the 20th Century’s most impressive construction projects and located at the heart of the burgeoning UK centre for renewables, Baysgarth School is now in the most exciting phase of its history. In November 2016 we moved into our brand new state-of-the-art campus, which comprises Baysgarth School, Baysgarth Sixth Form, the Humber Skills Centre and Baysgarth Sports Village. The school has risen quickly to become one of the top performing schools in the region, consistently producing good outcomes for our students. Our Year 7 cohort is full for new intake students and will be full for every year group from now on, which reflects the first class facilities we have on site as well as our fantastic students and staff who make the school a great place to learn.

The Head Teacher has many years’ experience of transforming outcomes in a number of secondary schools and at the heart of his vision is creating and developing close-knit teams, focused on collaboration, mutual support and risk-taking. The successful candidate will need to demonstrate their commitment to the core principles and values of ambition, fairness, consistency, rigour and putting students first. 

We wish to appoint a colleague who:

  • has a passion for teaching and has a good teaching record, but also be flexible and willing to teach at KS3 and KS4;
  • enjoys working with young people and has the flair, energy and ability to bring the best out of them;
  • has the ability, vision, drive and skills to deliver outstanding outcomes at all key stages;
  • is, or has the potential to be, an outstanding teacher.

There is a leadership opportunity available in the school at the moment, as Second in Department for the suitable candidate. This additional role offers an opportunity to be involved in the leadership, coordination and development of the department, under the direction of the Head of Department.  If you would like to apply for this role please make this explicit in your application form and address it in your letter of application.

Baysgarth School is an 11-18 comprehensive with approximately 770 pupils on roll. The successful candidate will be expected to have pride, passion, positivity and vision and a desire to ensure the school has the highest possible reputation in the local community and beyond.

Baysgarth School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to apply for enhanced disclosure from the DBS.

If you are inspired by the challenge and responsibility of this opportunity, we would like to hear from you. Further details and an application form can be downloaded from the school’s website or requested from the school. If you would like to discuss any aspect of the post, please feel free to contact the Head Teacher, Richard Briggs, at the school.
