Current Vacancies

School Counsellor (for September 2019)

We seek to appoint a School Counsellor to support our pupils.  The post is available from September 2019 and is full-time (term-time only).  It may be possible to offer a job-share for this post.

QEH has a strong reputation as a school which offers excellent pastoral care to its students.  A central feature of this provision is a Counselling service which has been provided for many years by Sarah Maltin, who is retiring.  The school seeks to continue and expand upon her excellent work.

Head of History (for September 2019)

We seek to appoint a well-qualified graduate able to inspire pupils.  A willingness to contribute to the wider extra-curricular life of the school is essential.

The History and Politics department, currently led by Mr Adam Calder, is a strong department within the school, producing excellent results and inspiring students to go on to read these subjects at top universities. History is compulsory to Year 9 and many continue to IGCSE where we follow the CIE ‘Modern World’ course. At A-level numbers are also strong and we currently teach a combination of AQA Stuart and 19th/20th century American history. Politics is a popular option at A-level with students achieving excellent results.  We follow the AQA syllabus.
The department is located in well-equipped classrooms in the main teaching block.  Departmental resources are excellent. There are many trips, some voluntary, to places of historical and political interest in Britain, Europe and the US.
There are four full time teachers of History and one member of the Senior Management Team also teaches within the department.

Teacher of Physical Education and Games (for September 2019)

We seek to appoint a qualified teacher of PE and games able to teach gym-based lessons and coach teams.  The succesful candidate will be an all-rounder with a specialism in rugby but also able and willing to coach other sports to a good level.  There will be some work with our attached Junior School.
The Director of Sport, Paul Joslin, coordinates the academic and extra-curricular programme of the department.  He is supported by the Assistant Director of Physical Education, Simon Albon, and many other staff who coach and run teams.
The school has a strong tradition of sport and is highly regarded as a centre of excellence for rugby, soccer and cricket. 
The school has a Gymnasium, squash courts and weights room on site and extensive playing fields and a modern pavilion some 15 minutes’ drive from the school.  In recent years, the school has enjoyed an exciting partnership with Bristol City Football Club to develop new playing fields for the joint use of Bristol City and QEH. 
The school is completing a £2.5m project to provide two all-weather surfaces, one for rugby/football and one for hockey and tennis.  This new facility will be ready for September 2019.
GCSE PE and A-level Sport and PE is offered by the department and results are consistently good.
