Required from January 2022
Part-time (2 days per week)
Fixed term contract until 31st August 2022 with a possibility of a permanent contract after this
We require a part time teacher of History to deliver lessons to Key Stage 3 and, ideally, Key Stage 4 students. The ability and willingness to also teach some Key Stage 3 Religious Studies would be advantageous.
The History department is an experienced and friendly department with three full time members of staff (including the Head of Department) and a number of other staff who teach History in conjunction with other subjects such as Politics or Religious Studies.
History is a compulsory subject in Years 7 and 8, with five classes of 30 pupils in each year group. The History Key Stage 3 curriculum aims to provide a broad and engaging curriculum, which develops highly transferable skills such as critical analysis, evaluation and argument.
One of our end points is to prepare our students for the rigours of GCSE study. Equally, by connecting our students with past societies and individuals, we deliberately encourage our students to spot social injustices and thereby make them more rounded and empathetic individuals.
History is a very popular option at GCSE, with about 80% of the cohort choosing to continue their studies in the subject. It is also a popular and successful subject at A level.
