We are extremely proud of our tradition of serving the families of the community of Marske and surrounding areas. The academy has been part of Outwood Grange Academies Trust, nationally recognised as a high performing academy chain, since September 2014.

We require a Head of Department who is passionate about providing young people with the best possible education whatever their background or ability. At GCSE, we teach AQA Geography and we have developed a focused curriculum from Year 7 to Year 11, which prepares students well for the rigours of their GCSE courses and life beyond the academy. Our curriculum focuses on the 5 core concepts of Geography; sustainability, human and physical interactions, physical processes, climate change and development. In 2022, 82% of our students achieved a grade 4 or above; 66% a grade 5 or above and 42% achieved 7+. The department is committed to driving progress and attainment to improve the life chances of every student. If you care about the success of all students, and have the energy to make that vision a reality, we would welcome your application.

This position includes a responsibility for leading our KS3 Life programme. This curriculum covers Religious Education, Citizenship, PSHE and RSE as well as responding to the relevant and emerging needs of our students. SMSC development and an appreciation of British values are integral parts of academy life, but are also addressed more frequently and in more detail in Life lessons
