Full time

Teacher of History to KS5 and Geography to KS3


Here at Horsforth School, we believe in opportunity and achievement for all.

Due to the promotion of one of our history teachers we are looking to recruit an excellent practitioner to join our successful History Department who can teach History to KS5 and Geography to KS3. History at Horsforth School is incredibly popular and successful and we have multiple groups at both GCSE and A level.

We are looking for an inspiring teacher who can help us to create a nurturing environment within which all students can reach their full commitment. If you are a passionate teacher who would like to develop your skills and pedagogy in a supportive and high achieving school; this is the job for you.

The successful candidate will be an energetic and enthusiastic teacher who wishes to join our successful and supportive History Department for one year in the first instance, with a view to the role ideally becoming permanent thereafter.   The position offers an excellent opportunity for either an established teacher or an NQT to join our high achieving school with an opportunity to teach to A level standard for suitable applicants. If you are passionate about your subject(s) and want to really make a difference to the lives of young people then Horsforth School could be the school for you.  

Success is seen throughout our ambitious and consistently oversubscribed 11-19 school, which enjoys strong community and international links.  Our commitment to excellence in education is recognised nationally. Ofsted describe us as a ‘good school with outstanding features’.

Located in north-west Leeds, the school is just five miles from the city centre with its thriving retail, leisure and cultural facilities, yet on the edge of open countryside.
