About the role


Required for September 2020

We wish to appoint a dynamic and inspiring Teacher of History or History and Government & Politics to join our successful Humanities Faculty. History is well resourced and is very popular, with groups being taught at both Key Stage 4 and 5. For a suitably qualified and interested candidate, Government and Politics is also taught at Key Stage 5 and is again a popular subject with students at the school.

The History Department is part of a larger Humanities Faculty which is one of the leading faculties of the school.  Results are well above national average and the specialist staff in all the departments are leaders in the development of teaching and learning at the school. The Faculty will soon be moving to a newly built specialist suite of rooms as part of the expansion of the school.

The history department places a strong emphasis on a collaborative approach amongst colleagues and a quality learning experience for all students studying History / Government and Politics across the school. There are currently 4 specialist History members of staff in the Department.

This post would suit an appropriately experienced teacher looking to develop their career in an outstanding department or a new member of the profession. An excellent induction and support programme will be available to the successful candidate.
