Wade Deacon High School
We seek to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic and inspiring colleague to join our highly regarded and successful History department. The department has an outstanding leadership team and collaborative culture. We pride ourselves on our commitment to ensuring student progress and high-quality teaching and learning provision for all. The successful applicant will share these values and play an active part in the History & RE curriculum at all levels. They will be able to enthuse and motivate our students with their passion for the subject along with their creative teaching, strong presence and personality.
As part of our commitment to Personal Development, we are looking to further develop our Curriculum in Religious Studies and whilst experience of teaching Religious Studies is not essential or necessary for this post, candidates who have taught both History and Religious Studies would enhance our wider curriculum plans.
Applications from experienced colleagues and Newly Qualified Teachers are equally welcome. We have an outstanding NQT induction programme to support new staff. We can offer the successful candidates an opportunity to work with highly trained and supportive staff, as well as a whole school commitment to professional development, since we believe that staff development is a fundamental aspect in raising standards further for our students.
Our school community is also a highly rewarding place in which we work. A comprehensive programme of CPD supports colleagues at all career stages; through the Teaching School and the Multi-Academy Trust, we provide excellent career opportunities for our staff. Colleagues seeking a varied, challenging and rewarding career can find this in the Wade Deacon family.
Wade Deacon High School is the founding school of a cross-phase, cross-regional Teaching School Alliance. We have a range of exciting opportunities for aspiring teachers and current educational leaders, we provide the very best support and training to ensure that our staff achieve their goals.
Wade Deacon High School is friendly, dynamic and innovative. Our last OFSTED described us as “an outstanding school" in every category. Our passion is to not only maintain this status, but achieve our goal of being truly exceptional. We have developed outstanding International links with top schools in Japan, China and India. In 2014 we were shortlisted for both 'Employer of the Year' in the Investors in People Awards, and ‘Excellence in Learning and Development’ in the Personnel Today Awards. In April 2018, we achieved Arts Mark Platinum status, reflecting the excellence within our school and our commitment to providing the best opportunities for our students.
The Wade Deacon Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure, satisfactory medical clearance and evidence of eligibility to work in the UK.
