Charlton is a very successful 11-16 co-operative school. We were very excited to move into our new school building in June 2016. We believe in progress through partnership with learning at the heart of all we do. We are a school that has a caring and disciplined environment, combining a degree of formality with good relationships between adults and students.

Wellington is a small market town, rapidly improving facilities and new housing being built nearby the school. From its central position, Wellington is easily reached by rail and has a large train station in the town. It is close to Shrewsbury and the famous Ironbridge, which is an area of local beauty and historical interest and one of the best in Shropshire!

To support us with our future development, we converted to an academy on 1st December 2018 and joined a Multi Academy Trust. We are now part of the Learning Community Trust. We believe this will be ideal for us, as we have similar vision and values. We are working in partnership towards a shared vision that places students’ learning and environments, and local communities at the centre of our approach.

We are offering an opportunity for a History teacher to join our successful Humanities department, (whilst a member of our full-time staff is on maternity leave) supporting the further development of an innovative curriculum for all, with purposeful, contextual learning and high expectations for students forming a major part of our passion for learning.

As a member of our team you will focus on ensuring the progress of every child by developing their skills, knowledge and understanding within an exciting and relevant curriculum.

Our Humanities department has an excellent team spirit where collaboration, co-operation and the sharing of best practice are key, as is hard work within a supportive team. Learning is at the heart of all we do and we aim to provide students with outstanding opportunities to learn and progress.

We are looking for a teacher who is enthusiastic about their subject, someone who can inspire the children in their care to be passionate about History and all this can offer them.

The position will start on 2nd January 2023. Our school is an equal opportunity employer, so we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children and individuals. This post is subject to a DBS Enhanced Disclosure.

If you have a passion for teaching, we would love to hear from you!

We welcome applications from ECTs

Closing date for applications: Friday 30th September 2022

We are committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. We follow the Safer Recruitment practices as set out in the Statutory Guidance - Keeping Children Safe in Education.
