Job Description

Required January 2021

Chelmsford County High School for Girls is one of the most successful girls’ selective schools in the country.  This is, therefore, a wonderful opportunity for a well-qualified History teacher, ideally with experience in teaching Government & Politics, to join a thriving and dynamic department, with excellent students, staff and facilities.  We are seeking an outstanding classroom practitioner, who is passionate about History and has the ability to drive students to success.

We are very proud of our History results at GCSE and A Level; our schemes of work are creative and engaging and we offer regular historical trips, enrichment days and opportunities for students to showcase their talents.  As part of a Faculty, which includes Geography, Politics, RS & Philosophy, we maintain a high focus on Teaching & Learning and work collaboratively.  The successful applicant will be expected to teach across all three key stages, and we follow the AQA examinations board, 7042CH for A Level, and 8145MG for GCSE.

We are seeking to recruit a highly qualified History graduate who can demonstrate the ability to apply modern teaching methods in an environment where students thrive on challenge.  Enthusiasm and a love of history are prerequisites as is the willingness to contribute to the extra-curricular programme. In return we are confident that you will find a warm and friendly atmosphere with excellent staff-student relationships and a well-established programme of staff induction and CPD support.

  • We are unable to offer tours of the School at present, but prospective applicants are invited to contact Mrs Emma Ledwidge, Deputy Headteacher, on 01245 245729, to discuss further.
