Birkdale High School
Headteacher: Mr G Y Bourgade
Head of Humanities
Permanent Full Time Contract – September 2020
Birkdale High School is a popular and successful all-boys 11-16 comprehensive Academy with an excellent reputation, outstanding pastoral care and consistently above national average academic results.
The school has seen its numbers rise over the last few years and is officially oversubscribed as from last year.
At Birkdale we aim to be leaders in the education of boys and this starts with a clear focus on developing effective teaching driven by a focus on cognitive science and educational research and our quality assurance is developmental rather than judgemental. Our teachers are given the space and support to make positive changes to their practice in a risk-free environment; we watch each other teach, share best practice and are eager to accept our professional obligation to improve methods of embedding the knowledge our boys need.
This is an exciting opportunity for a Middle Leader with outstanding potential in Humanities to join a successful growing school with committed colleagues working as a close team.
The appointed candidate is required to join from 1 September 2020.
