Job description

Required for September 2020

We are looking for a well-qualified and enthusiastic teacher of Geography to join our Humanities faculty. The post could suit an NQT as well as a more experienced candidate.

In 2016, South Nottinghamshire Academy moved into its £10 million brand new school and became part of the successful Redhill Academy Trust. We are an increasingly popular 11-18 school located in the village of Radcliffe-on Trent near Nottingham and in February 2017, we again secured a ‘Good’ Ofsted judgement in all areas of inspection.

The academy is also a member of Redhill Teaching School Alliance and as such there are excellent CPD opportunities and the chance to work alongside other high performing schools in the region.

For a discussion about the role, please contact Mrs Farrington (Head of Department) on the academy telephone number.

An application form can be downloaded from our academy’s website or by contacting Mrs S Sycamore at s.sycamore@snacademy.org.uk.
