We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, inspirational, and motivated teacher of Geography to join our team who will be able to motivate, enthuse, excite, and challenge students to produce the highest quality work and achieve high academic standards. The Geography department includes a team of 3 teachers and works closely with staff in history and RE. We follow the AQA specification at Key Stage 4, and have healthy numbers in our joint NE12 sixth form we share with George Stephenson High School.  

Longbenton High School has a new headteacher and deputy headteacher, a growing school roll and a bright future. We have a fantastic new building with outstanding facilities, in North Tyneside on the eastern outskirts of Newcastle upon Tyne, with great transport links. Our school values centre around kindness, positivity, honesty, determination, manners and ambition, and our school community is very special; visitors are always incredibly impressed with our young people. The successful applicant will be joining a school with a compassionate learning environment and in the knowledge that they will enjoy the full support and care of the pragmatic and forward-thinking leadership team. We have a dynamic, innovative team of professional staff who want to make a difference to the lives, aspirations and opportunities of our young people. In the latest staff survey (January 2021) all respondents said that they were proud to be a member of the school, and 98% agreed that ‘Senior Leaders and managers are considerate of my well-being and do all they can to ensure the school has a motivated, respected and effective teaching staff.’ We would encourage applicants to visit our website to find out more and watch our promotional film, which gives you a sense of what we are all about.
