What the school offers its staff

We are looking to appoint an outstanding classroom practitioner to lead our geography team in the role of Coordinator of Learning - Geography from Easter 2024 (or earlier dependent on availability). Geography is the most popular Humanities option at GCSE with around 4 classes each year creating the Year 10 cohort and continued growth is expected. This is a result of a well-resourced and enjoyed Key Stage 3 International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme. To follow on from this success, some years ago we began to offer IB Diploma Geography as part of the Post 16 offering, which has had excellent results and enjoyment since it’s inception. The successful candidate will lead on the continued development of our international curriculum in Key Stage 3, and Key stage 5 preferably (although training will be provided), as well as continuing the trend of improvement seen in GCSE AQA Geography.
