Our school is one of three secondary schools which together form Endeavour MAT. Whilst the school first opened in September 2019 with just four forms in Year 7, it has expanded to an eight-form entry school, growing exponentially with each academic year. This growth presents a range of exciting career opportunities to join our existing staff team.

We are seeking an excellent Head of Department for History to join us in our co-educational community school based in North Kent. The ideal candidate will be a creative and innovative leader, with exceptional teaching and pedagogy, and will possess a keen drive to make a real difference to our students.

To be our ideal candidate you will:

• be an expert teacher with a proven track record of delivering high quality lessons with excellent student outcomes.

• have the vision and leadership skills to grow a rapidly expanding department.

• be committed to raising standards for all students.

• be capable of developing staff within a team to secure outstanding results.

• be forward thinking and pro-active in identifying key trends and responding to the inherent changes required in the delivery of this subject area.

Career with Endeavour MAT - what we can offer you:

As well as offering you a competitive salary with pay progression opportunities, you will also be working in a brand-new purpose-built setting with great facilities and with a team of talented, engaged and motivated colleagues. Our common values of respect, integrity, determination, equality of opportunity and self-management help instil a strong work ethic among staff and students alike and our supportive culture provides what many of our existing staff describe as a ‘family feel’ within our Trust.

Application Process:

The deadline for applications is: 26th May 2022 with interviews expected to take place on 27th May 2022. It is our intention for all candidates to be observed teaching a face-to-face lesson as part of the selection process. Early applications are encouraged as eligible candidates will be invited to the interview stage on a rolling basis and we may appoint before the stated closing date.
