Teacher of Geography job summary

We are seeking a collaborative, dynamic and innovative colleague, from January 2024, to join the geography department at Chipping Norton School, a rural comprehensive, set in the heart of the Cotswolds. Our head of department begins a period of maternity leave at Christmas. As a result we seek a new colleague to join this excellent department with a track record of outstanding results at both GCSE and A level.

This is one of our highest performing departments and results at both KS4 and KS5 have been consistently excellent and significantly above national averages for many years - and again in 2023.  The subject is a popular choice at GCSE and A level as a result of innovative and engaging teaching.  We regularly have a number of students continue their studies through to degree level.

The well-resourced department consists of two full time members of staff and is situated in a block of three large teaching rooms and one Sixth Form study room, complete with computers and tablets to use in lessons. The post holder will have their own classroom.

Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. Schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to shared principles.

Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.

The school reserves the right to consider and interview candidates ahead of the closing date if appropriate. An offer may be made to an exceptional candidate in this instance.

Applications should be submitted via our recruitment portal  MyNewTerm.  Should you wish for a confidential conversation about the role, prior to application, then please email office@chippingnortonschool.org.
