Teacher of History job summary

History Department at St Bede’s

We are looking for a teacher of history to join us on a full-time, permanent basis from September 2022.

Please note, we will review applications on receipt and as such, this vacancy may close earlier than the deadline advertised.

The history department consists of the Head of Department, a KS3 Co-ordinator and five other members of staff. History is taught to mixed ability form groups in Years 7 to 9 and in mixed ability option groups in Years 10 and 11. For 2022-2023 there will be eight groups in Year 10 and seven groups in Year 11. Our Year 10 and Year 11 groups will be following Edexcel GCSE (9-1) with units covering Elizabethan England, Medicine in Britain, Weimar and Nazi Germany and Superpower Relations: The Cold War 1941-1991. In 2019 (our last exam year) over 88% of our students achieved 9-4 grades.

We deliver three A-level courses to an increasing number of students. In Year 12, we will teach two history groups, three sociology groups and one politics group. In Year 13 we will teach two history groups.

Our Year 12 and 13 students study the AQA History A level modules: The Making of a Superpower, USA 1865-1975, the English Revolution 1625-1660 and their NEA Historical Investigation Essay is on the fall of the Romanovs in Russia 1825-1917.

We have a departmental office and seven classrooms, all of which are equipped with computers and projectors.

The department is particularly committed to fieldwork. We will be introducing a residential trip to Berlin for GCSE students which is directly relevant to the Germany and Cold War modules. In the Sixth Form we organise a visit to Washington DC, every two years, aimed at history and politics students. We have also offered students the opportunity to visit the Houses of Parliament for a day trip.

Why work for us?

- St Bede's is a good place to work. Staff are friendly and supportive of one another: relationships between staff and pupils were recognised by Ofsted as 'exceptionally strong'.

- ECTs benefit from a well developed and comprehensive induction period programme. More experienced teachers are given the opportunity to participate in training which will help them to develop skills needed for middle and senior management roles.

- There are good on-site catering facilities. Staff are able to use the fitness facilities free of charge and to participate in sports activities.

- Music is a big part of school life and staff are welcome to join our senior choir and instrumental groups.

- We have a social event at the end of each term as well as occasional staff trips to the theatre.

- The school is situated in Redhill, a commuter belt town in the Surrey Fringe area. We are close to the M25 and there are good transport links to London and the South Coast from Redhill station which is about 15 minutes walk from the school. We also benefit from being within walking distance of beautiful countryside . Many staff live locally, others commute from Guildford, South London, Kent and East & West Sussex.
