The Grange is seeking to recruit a Teacher of Classics on a full time and permanent basis. This would be to commence in September 2018.
The Classics Department is a team that brings a passion about all aspects of the Ancient World – linguistic, literary, cultural and historical to The Grange School. The department caters to the many different ways that Grange students engage with the Ancient World – from introducing them to Latin in Year 7 to preparing students for A-Level and beyond, and each member of the department helps with the responsibility for planning and delivering this. Latin is taught to all students in Key Stage 3. Latin is offered at GCSE and Classical Civilisation and Latin at A-Level (OCR for all).
The successful applicant will be responsible for the teaching and learning of Latin and Classical Civilisation to Senior School students at The Grange School and the role would therefore include teaching the subjects up to A-Level standard.
Exam results in the Classics department have been good, in line with those of the rest of the school, with most A-Level Latin and Classical Civilisation candidates getting A or A* grades, with a few Grade B’s over the past few years. Over the past six years, GCSE results have averaged just under 50% A*-A for Classical Civilisation and over 80% for Latin.
Please see the accompanying job pack which is also available via the schools website for further information.
Closing Monday 27th November 2017 at 12 noon.
