Job summary

We are looking to appoint a self-motivated, innovative and exceptional Head of History who has the necessary ambition and expertise to play a key part in the future success of the School.
This is an exciting post for an excellent practitioner and offers an outstanding opportunity for potential future career development (over 70% of leadership positions have been appointed from internal progression in the last 5 years). The role provides the perfect opportunity for a candidate new to leadership and wishing to step into Middle leadership within a small and supportive environment or, for more experienced candidates, it will provide the opportunity to take on whole school responsibilities supporting any potential aspirations for Senior Leadership in the future.
The school ethos centres on providing an educational experience suited to our students and the local community and whilst academic progress is of the highest importance to us, this is equally matched by our promotion of vocational and enrichment opportunities, ensuring the development of every child as a whole. This has been strongly supported through our most recent Ofsted inspection, February 2019 in which the school received its second ‘Good’ rating.
If you feel that you are a highly motivated, inspirational teacher who has the expertise and experience to play a vital part in the future of our School then we would very much like to hear from you.
