Further details about the role

The Geography Department has designed its curriculum to help students learn about the key geographical issues of the day in a way which is increasingly interactive and enquiry based. We strongly promote the importance of fieldwork, decision making and independent enquiry as we seek to prepare students with the transferable skills they will need for the opportunities and challenges of life beyond school.

The KS3 curriculum provides students with a clear understanding of geographical knowledge and skills to allow them to explore different elements of human and physical geography around the world. Recall strategies are embedded within our curriculum, supported by bespoke knowledge organisers. At KS3 students are taught in mixed ability bandings. Opportunities for ICT, fieldwork and cross-curricular links have also been increased. We believe that we have chosen topics which are modern, exciting and relevant to young people today.

Geography is currently a popular option subject at KS4. We study the Edexcel B Geography Specification. Fieldwork has been carried out in Hunstanton, and Leicester currently, but is an area open for development. We also offer our GCSE students optional residential opportunities overseas to Iceland.

In the Sixth Form, students study the Edexcel A’ Level. Fieldwork has been carried out previously with the Field Studies Council, and we are exploring collaborative opportunities with our Trust, but as with A Level, this a flexible area open to development.

The Humanities Department has its own workroom creating a friendly and supportive atmosphere. The department is well-resourced and we actively encourage the development of new and up-to-date resources to stimulate and engage our students. We have access to admin support from our administrators which allows teaching staff to focus on developing teaching and learning. Humanities and Geography specifically has strong links with our Trust.

Commitment to safeguarding

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and require all staff and volunteers to share and demonstrate this commitment. The successful candidate will have to meet the requirements of the person specification and will be subject to the relevant pre-employment checks which will, where applicable, include a health check, an enhanced DBS check, the Children’s Barred List check and satisfactory references.
