Heroic Historian?

Our aspiration is to be great in all that we do.  Are you a great teacher & leader or aspire to be one?  If so, Preston School is the right school for you!

We are a Business & Enterprise Academy that aspires to embody our strapline of ‘Bringing Learning to Life & Life to Learning’ for every student every day. We place a large emphasis on the development of character and personality of our students, alongside a relentless drive for improving progress in all of the subjects that they study. 

We aim to be GREAT in everything that we do. Our student body are wonderful to work with and visitors to the school regularly comment upon the great learning environment within the school, personified by the excellent relationships between students and staff. We firmly believe in the core BASICs that the students are asked to follow, and we recognise that teaching is made easier when students are engaged with their learning - as ours are.

History is a popular subject at Preston with improving outcomes. It is an exciting time to teach in our experienced department as our Subject Leader is now in his second year and History is continuing to improve. Popularity and student outcomes continue to grow, hence this role! There is strong leadership support for all staff at the school and the successful candidate would be well-nurtured as we all work towards making Preston School even greater. Ideally, the successful candidate would also be able, confident and willing to teach some KS3 Geography. 

This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, motivated and talented teacher who is looking to make a difference in this exciting role. We would love to receive your application if you are:

  • passionate about teaching History and aspire for Preston School to be GREAT
  • dedicated to enhancing the learning and lives of our students
  • ambitious with high expectations of all, including yourself 
  • an excellent team member with the capacity to work across the department & the school
  • committed to continually improving as a teacher
