The Holt is a popular and oversubscribed 11-16 girls and 16-18 co-ed comprehensive school, which was judged ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2023. You will join a highly successful department where results for all Key Stages are well above the national average and many students continue with History at KS5.

The History department is a team of 4 specialist teachers. All key stages are taught by enquiry, with sequences of lessons being driven by ‘big questions’ that come from our own reading of historical scholarship. These resources are collaboratively and centrally planned across the key stages so they can be adapted by the class teacher. As a department, we are active members of the Historical Association and readers of pedagogy, which drives our departmental planning and feedback policy.

If you will inspire our students to achieve their best and want to be part of a dynamic caring community, we would encourage you to apply.
