What skills and experience we're looking for

Samuel Ward Academy is looking to appoint a Geography Teacher.

We are looking for a teacher of the highest calibre who has an excellent understanding of the subject and the ability to motivate, challenge and inspire our students. The successful candidate will be a highly skilled, innovative, creative and enthusiastic practitioner with a determination to achieve the highest outcomes.

Samuel Ward is a highly successful 11-18 co-educational academy. We are situated in pleasant surroundings on the western edge of Suffolk, within easy reach of Cambridge and Bury St Edmunds. We benefit from excellent facilities; our new £10m building opened in April 2019. We were inspected by Ofsted in November 2022 and were delighted to be graded a good school.

What the school offers its staff

We will offer you:

  • A supportive culture where teachers are free to focus on teaching and learning
  • A strong focus on student behaviour with a centralised detention system run by SLT
  • A wide range of CPD opportunities
  • Opportunities for career progression (including the opportunity to participate in the Trust’s Leadership Development Programme)
  • An ethos of innovation and experimentation; we are currently piloting whole-class marking and a new approach to homework.

Commitment to safeguarding

Unity Schools Partnership is committed to safer recruitment, equal opportunities, safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check will be required.
