Peter is an excellent young History teacher with an outstanding historical knowledge, particularly of Twentieth century topics. Whilst he was History teacher at Ormiston Rivers Academy, he taught with great success across KS3, KS4 and KS5. His value added results for his examination classes were very impressive for such a young teacher, consistently achieving positive VA across his rather mixed ability classes. He was able to diversify to teach the Level 3 Extended Project in Sixth Form, whereby he demonstrated an excellent general knowledge, political awareness and a nuance for 1:1 instruction. His results in these subjects helped the Academy achieve an outstanding Progress 8 figure at KS4 and placed the History and Extended Project courses in the ALPS Directory of Good Practice for Post-16 provision. He is adept at teaching History across a wide range of topics and eras and has a strong sense of morality that underpins his work ethic. As an employee, his attendance, punctuality and conduct was exemplary, leading him to rapidly become a highly valued member of our teaching staff. His relationships with students was particularly impressive, whereby he enthused and assisted a great number of students as classroom teacher, mentor and UCAS applications assistant. He has a wealth of knowledge of UK universities and used this to help guide students and raise overall aspirations in our Sixth Form. He is an outstanding young talent in the field of education, whom I cannot recommend highly enough. He would be a valuable asset to your organisation and is absolutely worth considering as a potential employee.
