What skills and experience we're looking for

This is an exciting opportunity for a bright and hardworking individual to take on a leadership role in the Humanities department at Sale High. We are seeking to appoint a specialist teacher of RE with the ability to teach History and Geography.

We are looking for an inspirational leader who is:

  • well organised
  • ambitious for themselves and others- particularly so the students in their care
  • hardworking and committed
  • positive in outlook with a ‘can do’ attitude.

We have a high proportion of disadvantaged students and students with additional needs, as well as a high proportion of students with English as an additional language. Our prime concern is our students’ success and the successful candidate will be ambitious for them, committed to meeting their needs and be able to combine warmth with high expectations.

What the school offers its staff

We are a school with very high expectations. We believe in three simple values: outcomes matter, people matter and learning matters. Everything we do is aimed at providing outstanding teaching and learning and outstanding pastoral support to our young people. We are a great school. The staff are warm and friendly, highly professional, hugely committed and our students are wonderful, they are keen to learn, are respectful and hard working. We are extremely proud of our inclusivity, we work hard to provide for our high proportion of disadvantaged students and those in need of additional support and care, and they thrive here.

We pride ourselves on how well colleagues are supported and cared for. Whilst our ideal candidate is someone who will be able to show a lot of drive, enthusiasm and ideas of their own, you would be well supported with high levels of mentoring as needed and line management.

You will have access to the benefits of working in a school with:

Ø Interactive technology in every classroom

Ø A well-resourced department

Ø Recently refurbished state of the art library

Ø A sincere commitment to professional development for all staff

The school is in a good location, easily accessible from Manchester, Warrington and Cheshire.

All members of staff are supported by an excellent CPD programme to ensure professional standards are maintained. We have developed excellent supportive structures in order to support colleagues who demonstrate potential for growth and leadership progression.

The Humanities Department are a great bunch of people. They are a hardworking, diverse and experienced team who work brilliantly well together. They would be very supportive and welcoming.

Commitment to safeguarding
