A well-qualified and experienced teacher is required to join our supportive and friendly team in this large and successful department. This post is temporary for the duration of the maternity leave which is likely to be two terms. 

We need a flexible, enthusiastic and committed professional to teach History to the full age range.  The ability to teach both GCSE and A Level History is essential. The successful candidate will be a team player who is dedicated and committed to delivering high standards of teaching and learning. 

Both attainment and progress are consistently above the national average in History. History is very popular at GCSE and we attract a large number of students, many of whom continue their studies at A level.  Results are consistently high and a good number of our students go on to study a History degree.

The successful candidate will be enthusiastic for the subject and keen to develop this enthusiasm in the students.  There is a real opportunity for professional development as there is the potential to teach the full age and ability range as well as working with other colleagues in this high achieving team. 

We are seeking 0.8 FTE but flexible working would be considered - please make this clear in your application.

Poynton High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all its students and expects all staff to share this commitment. Appointment to this post is subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS Certificate.
