Geography Teacher job summary

We are looking to appoint a Teacher of Geography to start September 2022. We are seeking someone who will be ambitious for our students, and has a vision for the development of Geography in our curriculum. The challenge for the successful applicants will be to contribute to further developing an already strong subject and continue to raise standards at both KS3 and GCSE.
The Ebacc faculty encompasses Geography, History, RE, Spanish and French and is a leading faculty across both campuses. The Achievement Leader of Ebacc is talented, enthusiastic, approachable and highly supportive. He works with the faculty to promote collaborative planning, enhance teaching and learning and to drive up standards of achievement and attainment.
70% of the outgoing Year 11 cohort secured 4+ at GCSE with over 50% securing 5+. The faculty has a clear focus on developing students' love of learning in Geography as well as focusing on the development of skills and knowledge for the transition of students from Key Stage 3 and into Key Stage 4 to ensure all students are well prepared and successful in their subjects.
The faculty comprises an Assistant Headteacher working with three Assistant Achievement Leaders, and 10 main scale teachers. They are a cohesive team and have a strong command of their subject. Ebacc subjects are really enjoyed by students and their extracurricular opportunities. Geography is housed in two classrooms on both the Shakespeare and Cherbourg Road campuses. All students are taught Geography at KS3 and around 50% of students opt for Geography at KS4.
As a new member of staff you will be well supported: we have a comprehensive induction process, and you will be given an Induction Mentor and a ‘professional buddy’. We have the Investors in People standard, and see professional learning as a major strategic priority.
For the successful candidate, a commitment to raising standards and a passion for developing young adults is essential: this entails a commitment to all learners, to excellence for all, and a belief that a good school makes a significant difference to learners’ life chances, levels of attainment and the well-being of the community as a whole.
