Teacher of Humanities Hornchurch High School, Hornchurch, Essex

Job description

We are looking for an enthusiastic Humanities teacher to join our growing faculty. You will have excellent subject knowledge and be able to teach consistently good lessons.

This is an exciting time to be joining Hornchurch High School; our new curriculum model encourages the majority of our students to study an English Baccalaureate curriculum. Students have the option of studying both History and Geography. A successful candidate will be a graduate in one of these subjects. Experience in teaching the other would be helpful but is not essential. Our faculty has received a considerable investment in terms of materials and new buildings, which are due to open in February 2020. We hope to mirror the expansion of our accommodation with an increase in staffing over the coming months and years. We were recently inspected by Ofsted and secured a ‘good’ judgement. Our results have improved consecutively for the past three years and we anticipate that this trend will continue with our 2019-20 results. We want to recruit a bright and enthusiastic teacher who can help plan and invest in our new curriculum model and ensure that the new faculty grows to embody a key aspect of our curriculum.
