History Teacher (maternity cover for one year)

Salary: Inner London (competitive based on skills and experience)

Start date: September 2021

Contract type: Full-time

Contract term: Maternity cover

Location: Stratford, Newham


School 21’s mission is to empower young people to change the world and delivering a
rigorous, relevant and powerful History education is central to that mission. Recently our
students have visited Berlin, debated in the Supreme Court, and questioned Oxford’s Regius
Professor of History, and we are looking for teachers who are passionate to think big about
what a History education can and should be. This is a great time to join a History team as we
seek to build on strong exam results, deliver projects that give our students agency and
continue to work to decolonialise the curriculum. Whether you are teaching sixth form
History, or developing deep thinking in our secondary school, School 21 is a place where
there is a rich and exciting mix of ideas about the best pedagogies and curriculum.

School 21 is a very special and different place to work in. We empower staff to find their
voice and their creativity. We offer collaboration and learning across ages and subjects. All
staff have a tailored programme of professional development and we offer multiple routes
to progression through subjects and pedagogies. We believe strongly in developing the full
potential of the staff. In the Humanities faculty you will receive specific support and training
to deliver Geography lessons at Key Stage 3 as well as development from experienced exam
markers, training in our key oracy pedagogies, and thinking deeply about second order
historical concepts.

Ideally you will have some experience teaching both GCSE and A Level History though we
also welcome applications from NQTs. As a member of the History team you will be working
within the Humanities faculty and will be expected, at Key Stage 3, to deliver History,
Geography and combined Humanities lessons. In addition, there may be opportunities to
teach Politics at Key Stage 5 dependent on experience. This is initially a one year contract.
