The Governing Body is now seeking to appoint an inspirational Leader of Learning in Humanities who will build upon the progress of our cohesive, successful Humanities department and lead it to greater successes in the future.

• possess enthusiasm, resilience, determination and a sense of humour
• possess the ability to motivate and inspire colleagues and learners

• be an excellent classroom practitioner
• be committed to their own professional learning and that of the science team
• have the ability to develop excellent working relationships with all stakeholders
• be able to use data in a highly effective manner in order to support progress across the department
• be absolutely committed to the vision of our school
