STAFF VACANCY: Teacher of History

Part Time Teacher of History (and Subject Co-ordinator)

From September 2018

Hollygirt School is a small independent school, educating children from the age of 3 up to 16. We take a non-selective intake and have pupils of a wide ranging ability profile. A small number of our pupils are on EHC plans, many have additional access arrangements for examinations.  We take a two form entry into Senior School.  Classes are small.

We require for September a well-qualified, suitably experienced and dynamic teacher of History to teach from Years 7 to 11.  The role is part time: the exact hours of the position are not yet fixed, but are likely to be in the region of 0.50 FTE.

The post holder will teach KS3 and KS4 History. The pupils are currently following Edexcel GCSE Specification 1H10.

Classes at Hollygirt are small, the maximum number in a history teaching group is around 14 pupils. The post offers an opportunity to teach well-motivated, polite, hardworking children in a friendly successful environment. The children are mixed ability and some have diagnosed needs. A small amount of additional classroom support may be available in some lessons but the teacher must be able to differentiate resources to meet the academic and pastoral needs of all.

Members of Hollygirt staff provide a good range of extra-curricular activities and the post holder would be expected to contribute to the programme with clubs/activities based either on a history theme or any personal interest. Members of staff are also expected to have shared pastoral responsibility for a tutor group; they provide examination cover (for a proportion of gained time), occasionally cover for absent colleagues and share school duties.

The salary will be on the Hollygirt Scale, which is slightly lower than the national pay scale, at a point commensurate with qualifications and experience. The school subscribes to the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.

Candidates invited for interview will be expected to teach a History lesson. You will be informed of the group ability profile and given a topic for this.

It is possible for potential applicants to make an appointment to look around the school before making an application, or to speak to the Head about specific matters.  Please contact school on 0115 958 0596 or  .

Closing Date for Applications: Friday 11th May, 9.30am
Interviews: Wednesday 16th May
