If the answers to these questions is ‘yes’, then Gildredge House wants to hear from you.

We are looking to appoint an exceptional candidate to the position of Teacher of History for our expanding 4-19 free school.

As Teacher of History you will inspire a love of History and learning about the past in our students, and ensure that they reach the highest academic standards, ideally up to A Level. History is taught as a discrete subject from Year 7 upwards. The Department also offers A Level Politics, and this may be available to a qualified candidate.   

Our ‘Good’ Ofsted judgement (November 2018) is only part of the story. The challenge is to sustain and improve upon this through every aspect of Gildredge House as it grows to full capacity in 2019.  The popularity of History in our growing school means that each year we need to add to our already strong team.

We have attracted a strong cohort of A Level History students, which means that, if you have the ability to teach your subject(s) to A Level, you may find yourself engaged from the start with talented, hard-working and committed students with a desire to take their learning to the highest level. 

Leadership Development

For the right candidate, a fast-track leadership development opportunity exists. You will have the chance to develop your leadership skills in order to equip you with the experience and attributes required to apply for a leadership role within a few years.

Gildredge House is right for you if:
