At Birkdale we aim to be leaders in the education of boys and this starts with a clear focus on developing effective teaching pedagogy and not engaging in educational fads or gimmicks. Our Teaching and Learning development is driven by a focus on cognitive science and educational research and our quality assurance of teaching is developmental rather than judgemental. Our staff are given the space and support to make positive changes to their practice in a risk-free environment; we share best practice, support and challenge each other and are eager to accept our professional obligation to improve methods of embedding the knowledge our boys need.

The Geography and English departments at Birkdale High School are made up of collaborative and hard working staff. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a dynamic team of people who have worked hard to develop a knowledge rich, carefully sequenced and challenging curriculum. With an emphasis on modelling and effective retrieval practice, we ensure that we invest time and energy in strategies that most benefit our boys. We are proud to consistently achieve excellent results in Geography and English and we are looking for an outstanding, passionate teacher with the skills and enthusiasm to make a positive addition to the department.
This is an exciting opportunity for a teacher with outstanding potential to join a successful school with committed teachers working as a close team. The successful candidate will be able to teach Geography and English and is required to join the team from 1 September 2022.
