What skills and experience we're looking for

We have an exciting opportunity for a Head of History to join our high performing school. As an inspirational and passionate teacher who is relentless in the pursuit of the highest standards of student progress, you will have the energy and commitment to help drive students’ learning. Central to the success of our school is a team of dedicated staff that work hard for our students and each other.

Our last Ofsted report recognised the high expectations, strong leadership, great teaching and positive relationships that underpin the good progress made by our students. The successful applicant will therefore have a track record of securing similarly strong outcomes for their classes.

What the school offers its staff

In return, staff are well supported and developed through our CPD programme. We take a sensible approach to workload and our staff are well motivated and enjoy coming to work. We also offer benefits such as an employee assistance scheme, including counselling services, well being initiatives such as free staff food, free sports activities and staff social events. As a consequence, opportunities to join our school don’t come up very often.

Further details about the role

Interviews will take place on Thursday 23rd May.

(Please note we are not able to accept CV’s. Applications should be emailed to e.morgan@belmontschool.org.uk or posted to the school address).
