What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for a talented and dedicated teacher to join our committed team. As part of our Humanities Faculty, our Geography and Social Science departments go from strength to strength. Our shared expectations are high and students value the subject meaning they enjoy their learning; they make us proud every day. In addition to teaching geography we are also looking for an enthusiastic colleague with the potential and ability to deliver social science (one or more of Sociology, Criminology or Psychology). We are fully expecting to provide support and training to enable this. We are keen to hear from excellent teachers, passionate about their subject and who can clearly see why it has an important part to play in the curriculum. The length of your experience as a teacher is less important to us than your ability to motivate and inspire.

We are excited to receive applications from newly qualified teachers ready to start a brilliant new career with us just as much as more experienced colleagues looking for their next step. You will have access to on-going development opportunities and the support of a forward thinking, successful multi-academy trust. You will be joining a well-led, supportive and cohesive team of professionals who will do whatever it takes to help you to succeed in your new and exciting role. We are committed to supporting all colleagues - particularly those starting a new career in teaching who will have weekly dedicated development time with an experienced mentor as well as support from a highly experienced Head of Faculty and school leadership team - all of whom are focused on your success. As well as having a passion for young people and their futures our colleague will: be a dynamic and creative professional with a desire for students to achieve beyond expectation be an ambitious classroom practitioner with high standards and excellent subject knowledge be resilient and not afraid to seek and offer support when it is needed bring an unwavering commitment to doing whatever it takes have the ability to engage, inspire and build excellent relationships with both students and staff This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly ambitious team of staff and make a real impact on our students’ lives.

Education can transform people’s lives and at Welling School I am absolutely determined that the students who attend our school will be given the very best opportunities to excel. Our new vision is to educate outward-looking learners who will thrive in their own lives and contribute to making the world a better place.

This means that we firmly believe that the purpose of education is twofold. We want all our learners to achieve academic success and have access to a varied co-curricular syllabus in order for them to complete their educational journey. Students can only achieve this if they feel happy and are provided with a caring environment in which the talents of different individuals are respected and encouraged to flourish. Our educational philosophy is focused around the values we want all our students to acquire before taking their place in the adult world. This is why we strive for:

Students who are ambitious
Students who are kind
Students who are active

In summary, an education is so much more than just good examination results. We aim to support and inspire all our learners, irrespective of ability, to be the best they can be in every single way. Learners at Welling School also benefit from outstanding facilities. In 2005 the school was rebuilt and the school continues to make improvements. This summer the practical food rooms were renovated. Our other excellent facilities include: specialist classrooms; sports hall; all-weather sports pitch; dance studio, drama studios, Apple Mac computer rooms, recording studio, art gallery, library and a designated 6th Form Centre.
