Following the internal promotion of the current post holder, with effect from 20th April 2020 or 1st September 2020, we are seeking a Teacher of History to join our dedicated and talented team. This is a full time, permanent role and we will welcome applications from Newly Qualified Teachers.
The successful candidate will:
• Have experience of teaching History, ideally at both KS3 and KS4
• If an experienced teacher, have a record of successful KS4 results
• Possess the ability to provide excellent teaching which promotes a passion for History

As a school, we pride ourselves on innovative practice, the well-being of staff and a commitment to the success of all students, both academically and pastorally. If this sounds like you, we want you to be part of our team.
We are a comprehensive school with improving GCSE results across many subjects; and our careers support is equally impressive, with the school having recently achieved 100% of leavers in full-time education, training or employment.
To further support our development, we are in the process of converting to a Multi-Academy Trust with Hollingworth Academy – an outstanding local secondary school. This relationship will further strengthen the improvements made and ensure every one of our students is supported to be the best they can be.
We are committed to professional development for all staff, regardless of role. We have an innovative staff development programme, which truly empowers teachers to take control of their own professional development. For those striving for career development, we provide funded places on nationally recognised middle and senior leadership development programmes. Regardless of what point you are at in your career and whatever your aspirations may be, Siddal Moor can support you to achieve them.
Our excellent facilities complement a committed, hard-working and supportive staff. We value the well-being of all our staff and we offer a range of benefits to working at Siddal Moor:
• Designated well-being time (late start or early leave)
• Free use of gym facilities
• Staff activities, including yoga and sport
• Ample parking
• Teachers’ Pension Scheme
• Funded CPD places for nationally recognised qualifications
• Full induction programme and personal coach
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff to share this commitment. Appointment to this post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring background check.
The ability to converse at ease with customers and services users and to provide advice in accurate spoken English is an essential requirement.
