Assistant Curriculum Leader – Humanities (Geography Specialist) job summary

“The school succeeds in dispelling the myths and stereotypes that are sometimes associated with boys’ schools.”
[Challenge Partners Report]

Our Ethos
Relationships are critical to our success and to our future. We empower our staff and encourage everyone to work collegially in departments to create shared resources so that planning time can be spent refining rather than re-inventing lessons. Good practice is shared and all staff contribute ideas to further enhance the curriculum. Our school is systematically organised and pastoral processes are tightly managed to allow staff to build professional relationships with students, thereby creating excellent learning environments.

Across the school, students benefit from our insistence on: high standards and achievement, an exceptional range of extra-curricular activities and the focus on traditional values. The school is in a period of growth, hence the need for this post. We are looking for a colleague that aspires to be part of a great team of staff and who will enjoy learning about the ‘Isleworth & Syon Way’, our unique strategy of ensuring success for all students.

Our Geography Department
We wish to appoint an inspiring geography teacher who is looking to join a highly supportive Humanities Faculty. We have one position available and will accept applications for a Mainscale post or for a teacher looking to develop their career by taking on the role of Assistant Curriculum Leader. For the latter, the specific responsibility will be negotiated on appointment but will be related to supporting the continued success of teaching and learning in geography.

The successful candidate will enjoy working with boys and will thrive on sharing in the successes of our students. Standards across the school are well above those for boys nationally in all measures, including for geography. The subject is extremely popular at both GCSE and A Level and many students further their studies at university from our highly successful mixed Sixth Form.

Our Staff
We recognise that our staff are our greatest resource and we are ambitious for our staff and invest heavily in their development. We offer an extensive programme of professional development which offers a range of opportunities for training, including internally, through local and national programmes. We have strong partnerships with universities and higher education institutions and actively support staff pursuing heavily subsidised Masters degrees and other higher qualifications. There will also be opportunities for internal promotion and to collaborate within our local partnership of schools.

Our Location
We are situated in a tree-lined neighbourhood of Isleworth, a vibrant area of West London. Close to Osterley Park and a short hop from central London by tube (Osterley is a 10-minute walk) or rail (Isleworth is a 7-minute walk). There is easy access to the M3, M4 and Heathrow Airport.
