Job Description

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, to join a thriving and dynamic Department, with motivated students, dedicated staff and excellent facilities.  We are seeking a strong classroom practitioner, who is passionate about History and has the ability to inspire students to success.

We are very proud of our Humanities results at GCSE and A Level; our schemes of work are creative and engaging and we offer regular enrichment days and opportunities for students to showcase their talents and develop their interests.  Working collaboratively in the Department and wider school, we maintain a clear focus on teaching & learning and are committed to developing our practice.  The successful applicant will have the opportunity to teach across all three key stages – we follow the AQA examinations board, 7042CH (1J and 2H) for A Level, and 8145MG (Paper 1 AB and BB, Paper 2 AB and BC) for GCSE.

We are seeking to recruit a highly qualified History graduate who can teach some KS3 Geography and Religious Studies, and 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.

Please return completed application forms for the attention of Mr Lawlor, Headteacher, and send to Miss Helen McGrath:   hmcgrath@cchs.essex.sch.uk
