Job summary

Specialist subject History essential.
The Humanities Department at St Antony’s Roman Catholic School encompasses Geography and History. We have a dedicated team of four teachers spread across the two subjects. We work creatively and collaboratively, and we aim to achieve the highest standards for all our students. We are supportive of each other and are passionate about our subjects.

The Geography department comprises two specialist teachers and each with their own expertise in the facets of Geography. We work to develop global citizens that have an awareness of world events and the impact that they have on our ever-changing world. In Geography we aim to develop observations of the world around us and the characteristics which make places across the world unique. We study Eduqas B geography at GCSE and offer an ambitious curriculum at KS3.

Within the History department we aim to create accomplished historians. We challenge students to think, act and speak like those working in the field would: to research thoroughly, to weigh-up evidence, to understand chronology, to evaluate interpretations and develop arguments. We do this by a consistent approach across the department ensuring all students develop the range of skills needed to become confident in their own opinions, make well supported judgements and expressing them articulately using keywords from topics and academic, historical vocabulary. At KS4 we study the Edxecel B specification and
offer a broad KS3 curriculum.
