“The world needs Geographers: to make sense of the world, to understand connections and relationships between its physical and human natures, to solve the interrelated and dynamic environmental, social and economic challenges of the present and of the future”

Queen Katharine Academy are looking to appoint a Geography teacher who wants to make a difference to join our enthusiastic, hard-working and committed team. Is that you?

The QKA Geography department aims to inspire and develop our students to (be):​

Responsible global citizens equipped with awareness, skills and knowledge to face and understand challenges of the 21st century and beyond​

Show Excellence, through achievement in their Geographical understanding, skills and knowledge​

Support all students in their development as future global citizens​

Take Pride in their Geographical skills, knowledge and achievement​

Have Empathy to understand their world, its wonders and challenges ​

Have a sense of Community and place, from a local, to national to international perspective and scale (physical and human)​

Tolerant of other peoples, cultures and backgrounds

In the words of current staff:

“We may be a small team, but we have big plans for the future. We believe in the power of teaching Geography to our students; how it will broaden their horizons and make them more informed about the world in which they live. We plan and collaborate together, sharing ideas and trying new things. Our curriculum and resources change to reflect the changes in our world. Geography at QKA is now becoming a popular subject of choice at both KS4 and 5, a fact for which we are very proud. I love teaching Geography at QKA.”

“Why I enjoy working here: super friendly and fun staff across the school, great learning environment and good facilities. We all support each other and build on each other’s strengths, high quality resources and teaching materials, interesting topics and subjects for learning, tremendous fun to work and collaborate with everyone! Highlights: strong, informative feedback to foster strengths and improve teaching capabilities, great subject meetings which allow us to really devote time to improving the subject for us and the students. Fieldtrips in GCSE to the coast, chance to teach A-level groups and field trips to Wales and London”

The department is well resourced and led by fantastic practitioners and we are looking to appoint a colleague who shares their enthusiasm and unwavering determination to help every student enjoy, achieve and progress.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a school within one of the well-regarded Trusts in the eastern region. The school has a great history of success and a bright and exciting future and we are looking for an ambitious and dynamic teacher to steer it through the next stage of its development.
