HEAD OF CLASSICS

TLR 2b (£5,360 per annum) - Outer London pay scale  

September 2024 start.  Full time, permanent role.

We are seeking a talented, passionate teacher of Classics to lead the Classics Department from September 2024. You will be an experienced practitioner with excellent pedagogical knowledge, superb communication skills, and a firm commitment to widening access to classical subjects for students of all backgrounds and abilities. The ability to teach Classical Civilisation and Latin at all key stages is essential; the ability to teach Classical Greek (or willingness to learn) would be an advantage. This is an exciting opportunity for a current or future middle leader to lead a large department of specialists. 

The Classics Department at Nower Hill is a very special place to teach. It comprises five specialist Classics teachers and offers all classical subjects, which is rare in the state sector. All Year 7 and Year 8 students study Latin, Classics and Oracy. We use the Cambridge Latin Course all the way through into GCSE alongside teaching the other elements of the Eduqas syllabus. Classical Civilisation and Ancient History are both offered at GCSE. Students may continue with Latin and Classical Civilisation at A-Level. We are very proud to be able to offer Classical Greek as an extracurricular option from Year 7 onwards and especially that we are one of the very few state schools offering Classical Greek in the sixth form.

The Head of Classics is also responsible for overseeing a wide range of extracurricular activities. In addition to Classical Greek, there is a thriving Classics Club, which is run by Year 12 and Year 13 students, a Classics Film Club, and we regularly organise study days and trips to destinations both at home and abroad. Our biannual trip to Italy or Greece is the highlight of many students’ school experience and anticipated with great excitement!

As a department, we constantly strive to improve our practice and benefit from a strong whole-school culture of professional development and a dynamic, ‘can-do’ attitude. You will be privileged to lead a team of experienced, supportive colleagues with deep and extensive subject knowledge, who constantly seek to learn from each other and plan collaboratively as much as possible. In addition, we host PGCE students each year, who are usually mentored by the Head of Classics. 

Nower Hill is a warm, friendly place to work and enjoys an excellent reputation in the local community. At our recent Ofsted inspection, the school maintained its rating of 'Outstanding' in every category.  Places are heavily oversubscribed. Used to high standards and expectations, our students are enthusiastic, hardworking and a pleasure to teach.
