Our values underpin our “Waingels Ready” expectations that we have for everyone within the Waingels community. These expectations form the basis of everything we do, and everything we believe in as a school and as a community.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and innovative teacher who has the ability to teach Geography and can deliver high quality lessons.
Geography is taught across all key stages. We strongly believe in a three-year Key Stage 3 and have taken significant time to create an engaging, relevant and knowledge-rich curriculum with traditional topics such as Rivers and Coasts, Population and Plate Tectonics, intertwined with newer topics which build on student and staff interest, such as Disease and Human Health and Crime and Human Rights. Planning and curriculum development is a particular strength of the Geography department and our curriculum design has been used as a starting point to support other subjects in their own development. At Key Stage 4 students follow the OCR B specification with 5 lessons a fortnight.
This position will be predominantly teaching KS3 and 4 Geography. Lessons are planned collaboratively within the department and shared in a central area, but teachers also have autonomy over their lessons and are welcome to amend central resources or create their own lessons based off the Schemes of Work.
Our students follow an academic core curriculum throughout Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. This includes the study of History, Geography and a Language as well as English, Maths and Science. But our students also have the opportunity to do a range of practical and vocational subjects including a wide range of creative and performing arts, physical education and other humanities like Business studies, Psychology and Economics.
If you feel your values and ethos align with ours, this is an exciting opportunity for you! We are looking for someone with energy and vision that is ambitious for themselves and the young people of the school. You will have a growth mindset and believe in offering dynamic Computing learning across the Key Stages.
Working with us offers you the opportunity to;
- Join a positive school where effort and success is celebrated
- Engage in excellent and personalised professional development opportunities
- Have the support of a dynamic leadership team to ‘take risks’ in a supportive environment
-you have a passion for teaching and learning…
-you believe in curriculum innovation and enjoy thinking strategically…
-you believe in an aspirational education…
-you believe that better never stops…
…Waingels is the place for you to pursue and advance your career!
