What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated, enthusiastic and inspirational teacher of RE with some Sociology to join the Humanities department here at Queen Elizabeth’s High School on a temporary basis to cover maternity leave from October 2023. Please indicate your preference for either full or part time on your application.

The role would ideally suit an individual who, along with the appropriate qualifications, is extremely motivated and enthusiastic. The ability to teach up to and including A Level RE alongside KS4 and KS% Sociology would be an advantage.

The majority of the teaching occurs in a specialised set of classrooms, all of which are equipped with interactive whiteboards. The department is well resourced with text books, software and other equipment.

What the school offers its staff

The RE department has an excellent profile in the school. Positive attitudes towards the subject lead to excellent levels of enjoyment and learning, which are reflected in the numbers of students opting for examination courses. Parent/student feedback also reflects a positive attitude towards the subject and an appreciation of the value of the materials made available and the skills on offer within the department.

The department has a thorough Scheme of Learning in place with lesson plans/resources. These are reviewed regularly as a part of the department’s commitment to ensuring that RE lessons are relevant, informative and challenging. Common Assessments are also identified within the Scheme of Learning and support the learning/progress of students.

Sociology is part of the Faculty of Social Sciences. It is very well resourced and has appropriate schemes of work and controlled assessments. The subject teaches AS and A Level to students in years 10 to 13. AQA specification 7191/7192 is used and the Families and Households, Education with Research Methods, Beliefs in Society, Crime and Deviance with Research Methods components are taught. Historically numbers have usually enabled there to be one/two groups in each year group. The department comprises the Head of Department/Deputy Head of Sixth Form and one or two other members of staff who contribute to teaching. In 2022 exam results were outstanding, with 68.4% of A level students attaining an A – A* grade and 100% of Year 11 AS students attaining A – C, with 86.6% of these attaining an A grade.

Commitment to safeguarding

Queen Elizabeth’s High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
