Teacher of History - Temporary (Maternity cover)

Full Time (0.9-1.0 FTE)

M1-U3

For September 2021

The King’s School with 1100 students is an outstanding 11-18 comprehensive school with ambitious students, supportive parents and excellent facilities.  We have a strong reputation for success across the curriculum and an extra-curricular programme which is valued highly by the whole school community.  A commitment to the philosophy of ‘Achievement for All’ and a desire to work in an exciting, dynamic, creative and supportive way are essential for all staff at The King’s School.

For September 2021 we wish to appoint a teacher of History.  The successful applicant would need to teach History to at least KS4 until the end of December 2021 (one term).  We are looking for a talented classroom practitioner who can be creative, dynamic and can communicate their passion to all students, and teach using a student-centred approach.  All classes are mixed ability, so the successful candidate will need to differentiate in order to support and stretch students. The successful candidate will work alongside other experienced teachers and therefore this post would be suitable for NQTs as well as more experienced teachers.  We are looking to appoint a team player who can communicate an enthusiasm and depth of subject knowledge, forming positive relationships with the students they teach.

A Level teaching is available for a suitably experienced candidate.  Strong subject knowledge is obviously crucial but a passion for the subject and a desire to work in an innovative and supportive team are also vital.

Please contact recruitment@thekings.devon.sch.uk to submit an application or if you require further details.  The closing date is 10am on Monday 17th May with a view to interview on either the 24th or 25th May.

We are committed to safeguarding the welfare of students so all staff are enhanced DBS checked.
