What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to recruit a highly motivated, conscientious and talented individual who is keen to join our extremely high-performing and popular Geography department. The successful candidate will have a clear track record of delivering an excellent standard of education to their pupils that inspires them to give of their best and facilitates them achieving outstanding results. The successful candidate will work closely and collaboratively with our Head of Department in ensuring the standard of Geography provision afforded to pupils across the school is of the highest possible standard and that our pupils have a range of exciting and enriching Geography related extra-curricular opportunities to access. The successful candidate will be expected to teach across at least two key stages and there will be an opportunity to teach aspects of the A Level course should the successful candidate be interested in doing so (there is no requirement for the successful candidate to have experience of, or an interest in, teaching A Level). The exact responsibilities of the successful candidate will be carefully tailored to match their skills, interests and the needs of the department.

We would welcome applications from Teachers of Geography who are looking to take on departmental leadership responsibilities for the first time, or current leadership holders who are looking for a new challenge. The post will be an excellent platform for those teachers aspiring to be a Head of Geography in the future.

What the school offers its staff

Our Geography department is a highly effective and dedicated team and one that is respected by all stakeholders at St John’s. Our pupils actively engage in their Geography lessons across all three Key Stages, and our examination results at both GCSE and A Level in this key EBACC subject have been exceptional across a number of years, due to the hard work and commitment of our Geography staff and pupils.

Commitment to safeguarding

St John’s is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful candidates will be required to undergo an enhanced DBS clearance.

This post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the amendments to the Exceptions Order 1975, 2013 and 2020.
