Job summary

A rare opportunity to join a truly excellent school.

The Swanage School opened in September 2013 as a brand new 11-16 comprehensive school. We have 320 students on role across years 7 to 11. Whilst popular, we aim to stay small.

Do you want to work in an established, innovative school that is committed to the delivery of an engaging Humanities curriculum across KS3 and KS4? The Swanage School is renowned for its pioneering and inventive approaches to ensuring the absolute best experience for our students. We are relentless in the pursuit of excellence.

This is a rare opportunity to join the extraordinary team at The Swanage School. We are forward thinking, creative and we always say yes to a good idea from staff and students alike. We are a small school with a big heart. We are small by design and our excellent outcomes are built on superb relationships with our students. We really like them, they are awesome, we encourage and celebrate their excellent work and ideas and we never cease to be amazed at the level of work they produce when glass ceilings are broken. It really is a great place to work and learn.

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding History teacher to join our very successful and motivated team. The successful candidate will have the drive and ability to inspire a genuine love and enjoyment of their subject.

This post will also involve teaching PBL to KS3 which covers all humanities subjects, as well as working in collaboration with Art, Maths, English and Science.

The school is genuinely embedded in the community and has forged links with community groups, businesses and charities in the town and beyond. These links have broadened and strengthened the education and life experience of our students.

The successful candidate will be:
• highly ambitious for their students
• an outstanding teacher
• able to build the aspirations and confidence of students
• committed to building an exceptional and caring learning community
• willing to run extracurricular clubs and competitions.

We are offering the opportunity to:
• work with a vibrant, motivated team to continue to provide educational excellence
• be part of a school at the heart of its community
• make a real difference to the learning and achievement of young people
• benefit from a wonderful environment in which to express your passion and make your mark
• work with a committed Governing Body.

The Swanage School has been created on ‘human scale’ principles, which means that strong and genuine relationships – within school, with the local community and with the wider world – are at its heart.

Our vision is to provide meaningful, tailored and supportive education to young people to enable the highest levels of attainment.
