What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint an outstanding and talented Teacher of Geography to join our successful team from January 2024 or earlier. This is an opportunity to be part of this growing and successful subject team which supports students to achieve their potential at KS3, KS4 and KS5.

We are looking for an excellent classroom practitioner who can provide a first-class education for our students, raising achievement and promoting outstanding progress. You must have a passion for Geography and the ability to communicate this to a wide range of pupils with different needs and abilities. You will be expected to teach across all age and ability ranges.

As a department delivering to all key stages we hold subject knowledge and pedagogy in equally high esteem; you will be part of a team that is dedicated to supporting your professional development in all areas and expects this to translate into outstanding student outcomes.

Our KS3 curriculum has recently been redeveloped together as a department to encompass our shared vision and we are proud that Geography has become the most popular choice with students at GCSE. We teach the AQA syllabus at both GCSE and A Level and run a two year GCSE course.

What the school offers its staff

We serve over 3000 children from the ages of 2 all the way through to 18. All of our schools are located within a few minutes’ drive of each other, and have worked closely together for many years. This context gives us a unique opportunity to shape a child’s journey from infancy all the way through to university or a high quality alternative. This is a huge privilege and a responsibility we take very seriously in our seven schools, who share a common commitment to improving outcomes and raising aspirations for all students.

Commitment to safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of all children regardless of age, gender, religion or beliefs, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation or socio-economic background. All adults in our schools have a full and active part to play in protecting our children from harm, and that the child or young person’s welfare is our paramount concern. We ensure that everyone understands their roles and responsibilities in respect of safeguarding and is provided with appropriate training to recognise, identify and respond to safeguarding concerns relating to children and young people.
