What skills and experience we're looking for


We are seeking a talented, passionate teacher of Classics. You will either be an experienced practitioner with excellent pedagogical knowledge, superb communication skills, and a firm commitment to widening access to classical subjects for students of all backgrounds and abilities, or have the potential to develop into such a practitioner. The ability to teach Classics and Latin at all key stages is essential; the ability to teach Classical Greek (or willingness to learn) would be an advantage, as would any experience of teaching Oracy. For the right candidate, we will offer additional responsibilities within the department.

The Classics Department at Nower Hill is a very special place to teach. It comprises five specialist Classics teachers and offers all classical subjects, which is incredibly rare in the state sector. All Year 7 and Year 8 students study our homemade Latin, Classics and Oracy course. We use the Cambridge Latin Course all the way through into GCSE alongside teaching the other elements of the Eduqas syllabus. Classical Civilisation and Ancient History are both offered at GCSE. Students may continue with Latin and Classical Civilisation at A-Level. We are very proud to be able to offer Classical Greek as an extracurricular option from Year 7 onwards. We are one of only a very few state schools in the country offering Classical Greek in the sixth form.

In addition to Greek, there is a thriving Classics Club, which is run by Year 12 and Year 13 students and we regularly organise study days and trips to destinations both at home and abroad. Our biannual trip to Italy or Greece is the highlight of many students’ school experience and anticipated with great excitement!

As a department, we constantly strive to improve our practice and benefit from a strong whole-school culture of professional development and a dynamic, ‘can-do’ attitude. You will be joining a team of experienced, supportive colleagues with deep and extensive subject knowledge, who constantly seek to learn from each other and plan collaboratively as much as possible. In addition, we host two PGCE trainee teachers each year.

Nower Hill is a warm, friendly place to work and enjoys an excellent reputation in the local community. Places are heavily oversubscribed. Used to high standards and expectations, our students are enthusiastic, hardworking and a pleasure to teach.
