Job summary

‘It takes a whole community to bring up a child’ is not just a motto at Ark Boulton, it influences the way we support each other, our parents, students and other stakeholders.

Our teachers are the backbone of this community and are given the room to grow and develop in an encouraging, challenging and rewarding environment. As role-models they exemplify the virtues we strive to instil in our students, which include courage, self-discipline, commitment and honesty.

The Geography team is a hard working and committed team, teaching a range of human and physical geography topics across key stage 3 and 4, including local fieldwork opportunities. The department is supported by our Regional Network Lead for Geography through weekly subject specific professional development sessions and in school support.

Become a member of our school family and embrace multiple opportunities for personal and professional development, not just within the school, but from the internationally renowned Ark family of schools we are a part of. As a result, our staff can share best practice and receive training from some of the best educators in the country.

In a typical day, teachers follow a set structure for lessons that students are accustomed to. This allows our teachers to make the most of the lesson time and manage behaviour with a standardised routine. In addition, weekly meetings and reviews provide time for staff to deepen their teaching knowledge and styles while developing strong, resilient and adaptive teams.

Our strapline ‘growing together, reaching higher’ applies as much to our staff as our students. We recognise that the health and wellbeing of our staff will affect that of our students. For this reason, we have invested in developing our wellbeing room and other initiatives to care for our whole school community.

If you are someone who understands the difference a great education can make to pupils lives, have a passion and belief in the potential of every student, and are excited at the prospect of growing as an educator, we look forward to hearing from you.
