Wetherby High School is a forward-thinking school in a semi-rural area of North Leeds. We are proud of our caring and inclusive reputation and have a strong team of professionals committed to developing and delivering a rich learning experience for all our students.
Our school community is based upon an inclusive and restorative ethos that we believe best allows every student the opportunity to realise their full potential.
The school is in an exciting phase of expansion with increasing numbers on roll and building work due to start on a new building for the school community.
We are now looking to appoint a dynamic, innovative and skilful teacher to teach History, who is able to demonstrate:
- An understanding of, and commitment to, an inclusive school ethos, working restoratively and ensuring the well-being of each child.
- A successful track record of raising attainment and progress for students of all abilities.
- A passion for History, interested in inspiring students and a wish to join a vibrant, forward-thinking and successful team.
- A commitment to providing a highly effective learning environment and a willingness to positively embrace change, challenge and opportunities.
It is essential that the post holder shares our school ethos which is firmly rooted in a restorative approach and the following values: to ‘Know our children well’: to be ‘Partners in Learning’: to develop ‘Character for Achievement’; to ‘Enjoy and Aspire’. We firmly believe that in order to move forwards we need to be prepared and able to ‘do things differently and do different things’.
We significantly invest in the development and training of all colleagues who are equally happy to share their expertise, skills and knowledge across the organisation. If you are looking to be stretched and challenged within a positive and creative staff team and you have a genuine desire to make a positive difference to our children.
