Teacher of Geography and History job summary

We are a unique, small, rural 11-16 academy in the beautiful setting of North-West Worcestershire.   Our pupils are happy, well behaved and proud of their school.   The academy has a strong vein of moral purpose where the child is at the heart of all we do. We invest in our pupils and our staff to ensure all are supported to be the best they can be.  

We are looking for a driven and committed practitioner to teach Geography at Key Stage 3 and Key Stage   4 as well as History at KS3. This is a popular subject throughout the 7 -11 curriculum.   The post sits within the Humanities Faculty consisting of Geography, History and Religion, Philosophy and Ethics.   The team are experienced, collaborative and passionate about providing the best possible provision for the children at Tenbury High.   The faculty leader will work closely with the successful applicant to offer the mentoring, support and guidance required.

Our Early Career Teacher development programme is very successful. The training is led by Vice Principal who is also the programme’s   professional mentor and coach. She is highly experienced working with trainees and newly qualified teachers. We work closely with UCW Worcester and a range of other training providers (including OAT) to ensure the best possible early years training to get you on the best footing for a successful and fulfilling career.

For our qualified staff, we offer weekly CPD following a well planned training schedule linked to school priorities and developmental areas.   In addition, there are multiple CPD opportunities offered through the Trust,  

Humanities is a popular subject at KS3 and 4 and attracts high numbers for GCSE entry.   The curriculum creates opportunities which inspire pupils’ curiosity about their world and the people they share it with. The academy recognises the importance of ensuring pupils gain an understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. Studying a broad humanities curriculum helps pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and place in the world.

In order to understand our very special characteristics, you are welcome to visit the academy to tour and meet with members of our staff and our pupils.  Please contact Christine Sheppard, Office Manager, to organise this ( csheppard@tenburyhigh.co.uk ).

  I am grateful for the interest that you have shown and would urge you to apply for the post.   I do not believe in making the recruitment process a task which is too arduous to complete.   Therefore, I ask you simply to complete the application and include the following information:

·                     your educational philosophy

·                     your experience to date and how it has prepared you for this role

·                     your perspective on the importance of extra-curricular learning and how you can contribute to this

Please note that the closing date for all applications is Friday 24th November and interviews are planned for the following week.

I do understand the effort required to submit an application and appreciate the time that you will take to do so.
