Teacher of History/Humanities The Campion School, Hornchurch, Essex

Job description

The Campion School is committed to providing the best possible learning and working environment for both pupils and staff.

As we look to bolster our already vastly talented teaching staff, we currently have a vacancy for a Teacher of History/Humanities.

An enthusiastic and well-qualified teacher of Humanities is required to join this oversubscribed and popular school. An ability to teach Geography/RE as a second subject would be an asset. Examination results are very high and the school has an excellent reputation. The school is committed to maintaining a broad curriculum and a wide range of extra-curricular activity. The school underwent a very successful OFSTED inspection in 2016, which has praised the high achievement, good behaviour and good teaching that characterise the school. The successful candidate will initially be required to teach Key Stage 3 with the opportunity to develop this into GCSE and A level teaching depending upon experience and qualifications. The school has a national reputation for sport. Music and other extra-curricular activities are a strength.

You’ll be joining a team with a number of experienced teachers who will support your development. This makes this role ideal for an NQT or Teacher in the first few years of their career. Equally, it would also be a great opportunity for someone with more experience under their belt to progress further amongst some talented colleagues. Help with accommodation may be available as the school is currently developing on-site provision for teachers new to the profession.

Outside the classroom, there is plenty of opportunity to get involved further. We have a keen focus on sport, music and charity work and all staff are welcome to get involved should they wish.
