What skills and experience we're looking for

We have a vacancy for a Humanities Teacher (Geography or History specialist) to join us on a full time basis from September 2024 on a fixed term contract, MPS - UPS. Being open to teaching across the Humanities and/or another subject would be desirable.

We would welcome and encourage those who are ECTs or early in their career to contact us as this could be an excellent opportunity to start your career in teaching with a dedicated school with strong and established ECT support.

Having just received a rating of Good from Ofsted in November 2023, you will be joining us on our journey towards becoming an exceptional school that lies at the heart of a close knit community. With around 550 students, we are a smaller than average secondary school and this brings with it many benefits, not least our ability to get to know our children quickly, understand their individual needs and place high quality education at the heart of everything we do. Our values of Resilience, Respect and Responsibility are lived throughout our school community.

The Humanities department includes the curriculum subjects of History, Geography and R.E. and is comprised of 4 other members of teaching staff, including 2 Senior Leaders. Each subject is taught at both KS3 and 4 and we ask all students to choose at least 1 History or Geography as part of their KS4 diet. Currently we teach the AQA syllabus for History and Geography at KS4. R.E is also studied by all pupils in KS3 and 4, and it is also offered as an option at KS4. All curriculum maps can be found on our school website and information about exam boards that we use at KS4.

This is a warm and friendly school with a family feel where
each child is appreciated and cared for who they are, as well
as what they achieve and go on to become.

Being a smaller than average secondary school, our size is
definitely our strength. We pride ourselves on being a kind
and caring student focussed school, where every member of
staff makes it their business to get to know each child as
soon as they enter the Marlwood family.

Our pastoral care is second to none. Our dedicated pastoral
staff work very closely with students to understand their
needs and provide the very best support and care. After all,
happy children are more likely to be successful children!
Marlwood has recently received investment that is funding a
facelift of the school to include new classrooms for art,
design technology and science. The school also benefits
from expansive grounds including tennis courts, astro pitch
and a multi-purpose playing field. There is a real sense of
fresh air at the school!
