We are seeking an inspiring teacher to teach KS3 and KS4 History to our small well behaved classes where high expectations are the norm. The successful applicant will benefit from an excellent department with detailed and well thought through schemes of work and short term planning. Despite an inclusive mixed ability intake the department has a record of strong results with last year’s GCSE being 46% A*/A.

We are a thriving small independent school with high expectations of achievement and behaviour. Our pupils are characterized by their development into vibrant young leaders, hallmarked by their integrity and maturity.

Teaching at Thames is inspiring as small classes enable the development of rapport with pupils as individuals. The school has a strong ethos that promotes high standards of behaviour, respect and self-esteem. CPD is excellent. Established 16 years ago, the school has grown consistently each year. The school is a member of the Independent Schools Association and won the award for Outstanding Contribution for International Understanding in 2015.

The role:

  • Teaching History across Key Stage 3 and 4
  • Following well-differentiated schemes of learning and resources
  • Preparing pupils for CIE History IGCSE (similar to OCR Modern World History)

The post is open to an excellent teacher who will:

  • Be a graduate with a relevant good honours degree
  • Be a creative, inventive and dedicated individual with a real passion for your subject
  • Have an exceptional eye for detail
  • Respect the school’s aims and values

Thames Christian College committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all who work at the school to share this commitment. Successful applicants will be subject to child protection screening appropriate to the post including an enhanced disclosure through the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and checks with previous employers.

Closing Date for Applications:

The closing date for applications is 11am on Monday 12th December 2016, although early applications are encouraged as they will be reviewed as they are received and we reserve the right to appoint before the closing date.
