The Opportunity 

Teacher of History (with the opportunity to teach other Humanities, predominantly in Key Stage 3)  

Full time position required from September 2018.  

Last year, in our Gold Investors in People assessment, our school was described as having “excellent leadership, teaching, pastoral care and continued investment in the professional development of a highly committed and hardworking staff”. It went on to say that “Staff are proud to work at the school”.   

The person who is appointed to this post will be crucial to the next chapter of our story.

Our philosophy is that, to continue to achieve excellence, we must invest in our staff.  Your career development will be important to us. We offer bespoke learning opportunities for all. As one colleague commented:  “I can honestly say that a single day does not go by when I don’t learn something”.  Whatever your aspirations we will work with you to achieve them. 

Our ethos 

We have often been described as being a highly values driven organisation. All that we do for our 1450 students and more than 200 staff is informed by our core values of Faith, Responsibility, Compassion, Truth and Justice.  Even the environment of our school – the classrooms, the restaurant, the grounds - demonstrate that these core values affect every aspect of school life.   

We very much look forward to receiving your application.
