Haileybury is looking to appoint a Teacher of History to join a vibrant, committed, and professional History department.


History is one of the core subjects in the Lower School (Years 7 to 8) and the Removes (Year 9). The course in Years 7 to 9 closely follows the National Curriculum. Year 7 study Medieval England. Year 8 move from a study of the Reformation to the Mughals. In Year 9 the pupils study the rise of Hitler, culminating in a whole year trip to the Netherlands to investigate the Nazi occupation of the country. The department also regularly runs trips further afield. There is an annual trip to Alabama and Georgia, following the Civil Rights trail, as well as upcoming trips to Italy and Vietnam.

History is an extremely popular option at GCSE level and there is also a strong uptake at A level or within the IB Diploma. Examination results in the department are consistently very strong, and compare very favourably with other subjects in the School.
