Teacher of History (Maternity Cover)

Required for 6th January 2020, an enthusiastic qualified teacher able to demonstrate and develop excellent teaching at KS3 and KS4. Applications from NQTs and experienced colleagues are equally welcome.

Results in History are excellent (2019: GCSE 84% Grades 9-4 and 47% Grades 9-7; A Level 100% A*-C and 92% A*-B) and the subject is popular at GCSE and A level with many students going on to do History or History-related subjects at degree level.

Ranelagh is an 11-18 coeducational, Anglican Academy (converter) which is oversubscribed and has an excellent reputation for academic achievement and positive school ethos.  The school has had four ‘outstanding’ OFSTED reports, with Grade 1 across all areas, but we are not complacent and as such the provision for professional learning and development is something of which we are all very proud.

This post may be suitable for a Newly Qualified Teacher.  Potential candidates may also wish to know that our admissions policy enables the school to prioritise the admission of children of staff recruited to posts in which there is a demonstrable skill shortage.

If you have a very good knowledge and understanding of the subject and you are an excellent teacher looking to develop your career in a supportive and progressive environment, we would welcome an application from you.  Opportunities for personal development are excellent.

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. All staff employed in the school must be aware that an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check will be undertaken.

If you are interested in learning more about the position, please contact the Headteacher via her PA, Mrs D Jeffers, on 01344 421233 or by email, study@ranelagh.bracknell-forest.sch.uk from whom an application pack is also available for those responding by post.

Closing Date for applications: Monday 21st October
