Are you a History Teacher passionate about your subject?
Do you have the ability to deliver interactive and engaging lessons which inspire students to get excited about History?
Do you want to take on more responsibility as part of your career progression and influence whole school decision making?
We are looking for an ambitious, enthusiastic and successful History practitioner keen to develop their career to join Our Lady and St Chad Catholic Academy in the role of Teacher of History.
We are a high performing school in North East Wolverhampton. We have a successful Humanities team. History is a popular subject at KS4 and KS5 and results in the Sixth Form are very good.
The successful individual will join our History department and teach alongside a vibrant team. History is a very popular subject at GCSE with a growing A Level department. History has made good local links with the Cold War Musuem at RAF Cosford and the Black Country Museum where we encourage students to learn outside the classroom. We are a PIXL Club member and run the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme in partnership with other teams in school. We have great facilities including dedicated History teaching rooms each with new interactive whiteboards and access to 1-1 devices. We are also developing Kagan strategies for cooperative learning within the school to engage all learners
