What skills and experience we're looking for

The Psychology team at Weald work closely with the Sociology team, with some teachers working across both subjects. We are a dedicated team of specialists with a variety of experience, who are supportive of each other’s wellbeing and work life balance. We are passionate about using a range of engaging and effective formative assessment techniques and collaborate regularly as a department to drive our practice forwards and support and challenge each other. We aim to support and promote the development of our students into independent learners who can think creatively in order to reach their full potential and to achieve outstanding results, and this includes running a super-curricular calendar of opportunities to engage with psychology professionals and universities. We pride ourselves on constantly looking to push the boundaries, ever looking for new ways to enhance the learning experience of our students.

We are keen to try new things, to learn from others and constantly reflect on our practice to ensure the experience we provide meets the needs of our learners and prepares them to question, to challenge and be challenged, to enjoy and to succeed both at Weald and beyond. As such we are delighted that so many of our students go on to read subjects closely related to the discipline. We currently deliver the Schizophrenia, Relationships and Development and Forensic Psychology options during Year 13, and these are reviewed annually.

What the school offers its staff

Weald of Kent is a selective Girls’ Grammar School for 11-18 year olds with a roll of approximately 2000 students including our co-educational Sixth Form. The school is one of the highest performing schools in the country. We aspire to excel at everything we do. Owing to our continued success were thrilled to have been given permission by the Secretary of State to expand and mirror what we deliver at our Tonbridge campus in a campus at Sevenoaks, which opened in September 2017. In addition to the exciting new facilities, we have also invested in our Tonbridge campus which now has a state of the art Sports Hall and university style Sixth Form Study Centre. A new science block and new English classrooms have been built this year. Both campuses are situated in beautiful rural settings with far reaching views across the Garden of England with excellent transport links.
