Are you passionate about teaching and learning? 

Do you want to develop your career in an outstanding school, working closely with colleagues who share that passion?

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and highly effective individual to teach History and to help raise the results of an already successful department, where 62% of students achieved a grade 5 or higher in the summer of 2019.

The school is happy to consider NQTs and both full-time and part-time applications. For NQTs, three weeks’ work in July is offered as an induction to the school.


The successful applicant will:

  • be an excellent and ambitious classroom teacher
  • have a good understanding of the current educational developments, especially those relating to classroom based practice
  • have the highest expectations of students
  • have an enthusiastic and positive approach within and beyond the classroom
  • have energy, stamina and a sense of humour
  • have teaching experience of Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4


Ruislip High School is an outstanding, oversubscribed, 11-18, mixed comprehensive school with over one thousand students on roll and we are currently undergoing an exciting phase of expansion, including a brand new sixth form centre.  We obtain excellent results: our summer 2019 GCSE results place the school in the top 25% of schools nationally; at A Level, 22% of all grades were A*/A grades and 7% of the cohort attained straight A*/A grades. 

In joining Ruislip High School you can expect to work in an environment that focuses on teachers improving, rather than proving, their practice; where teaching and learning is at the heart of everything we do; and where all staff work as a community to support our students to fulfil their potential in line with our school’s motto: from grass roots to reaching for the sky.

The school has a comprehensive professional development programme tailored to individual needs, from NQT to middle and senior leadership; new staff are supported and guided by highly skilled and experienced colleagues, and by partners in external organisations. 

Staff have a range of opportunities to collaborate and develop their career within the Vanguard Learning Trust.

Staff are afforded many benefits and rewards as part of the Vanguard Learning Trust’s entitlement package for staff.

There are excellent transport links with central London, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and Berkshire.
