What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding teacher to the position of Geography Teacher. The successful candidate will join our flourishing Humanities Faculty as part of an ambitious team. The ability to teach the subject at Key Stage 3 and 4 is essential. Previous experience of teaching A Level is an advantage. The Department follows the AQA specifications at GCSE and A Level.

We aim to provide a curriculum that develops knowledge and skills required to understand the human and physical processes that have shaped the world and a sense of shared responsibility for it. Contemporary geographical issues are woven into the curriculum. Trips include residential fieldwork courses in Year 11 and Year 12 and a visit to Iceland. Geography is a popular subject; there are 6 GCSE classes and 2 A level classes. The strength of our department is demonstrated in our excellent student outcomes year-on-year; in 2022, 67% of students achieved Grade A*-B at A Level and 74% of students achieved Grade 9-4 at GCSE, with 26% of students accessing Grade 7 or above.

You prepare pupils to be courteous, considerate and capable young people, ready for the adult world.’ We are an expanding school, with 217 students in each year group and over 250 students in the Sixth Form. Our facilities are excellent with world-class sporting facilities, a brand-new music, languages and science centre and plans for further improvements across the site. In September 2025 we will have a brand-new school building.
