We are seeking to appoint a talented, energetic and dedicated graduate to join our outstanding History Department from September 2018. Over 120 pupils take History at A Level and International Baccalaureate, and a significant number go on to study the subject at university, with twenty gaining places at Russell Group universities last year. History is also a very popular option at GCSE, with 300 pupils currently studying at this level. The successful candidate will be expected to teach to Sixth Form and should be aiming to make a major contribution to the development of this dynamic department. The ability to assist with Oxbridge applications and teach Politics or another subject would be an advantage.
The post is suitable for experienced teachers as well as those new to the profession who may be able to participate in our highly-regarded Schools Direct programme. A proactive culture of supporting and developing talented and inspiring teachers is supported by the Senior Management Team.
Staff will be encouraged to contribute fully to the co-curricular life of the School and this is reflected in the salary offered. A strong commitment to the pastoral and house system is also anticipated. Accommodation may be available. Assistance is offered towards removal expenses.
We welcome applications from all parts of our community as we aspire to attract staff that matches the social and cultural diversity of our student intake.
