Teacher of History job summary

The History Faculty at Moor End Academy is a fantastic place to work with fully embedded long, medium, and short-term plans, along with resources for Year 7 to Year 11. We have popular enrichment opportunities and students thoroughly enjoy their History lessons at Moor End.

Within KS3 our chosen topics are in line with the National Curriculum, and follow a chronological order from the Ancient Period to the Modern Period. Our topics allow students to explore changes throughout British History, but also encourage exploration of cultures across the World. Within our chosen topics, different groups of people E.G Women, African-Americans, Working-Class, are focused on across different time periods, allowing for our students to gain a broad insight into the lives and experiences of various sections of society.

Our lessons are driven by curiosity; we believe that students learn best when they enjoy their lessons. All students’ study History as part of our broad curriculum diet in Year 7, 8 and 9, although in order to ensure time for valuable revision periods, the History department study their first GCSE topic within Year 9. At the end of KS3, students choose either History or Geography as part of our English Baccalaureate entitlement.

Our chosen GCSE topics complement the topics undertaken by students within KS3, to build on the foundation of knowledge they acquire within Year 7-9. Our chosen topics ensure depth of knowledge within Britain and throughout other countries, within sub-topics such as ‘Norman England’, and ‘Germany 1890-1945’. Moreover, our topics ensure a breadth of knowledge and an ability to think thematically, which prepare students for the demands of History beyond KS4.

Moor End Academy is a fantastic place to work and the History department plays an important part of this. We have a clear 5-year vision, and are firmly on track to achieve this vision. We are adaptable to the needs of our students and new policies which are implemented at senior and departmental level. If you are an innovative, hardworking, successful individual who aspires to achieve the best for all out pupils, we’d love to hear from you!

The successful applicants will be required to undertake a Criminal Record Check via the DBS. The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
