Do you believe that all students deserve access to a knowledge-rich curriculum? Are you ready to teach in a school where a rigorous behaviour policy and centralised SLT-led detentions ensure you can focus on teaching students and sharing your passion? Towers School and Sixth Form Centre is looking for a Religious Studies and Humanities teacher who is able to teach up to A level. This encompasses Religious Studies, Citizenship, Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology and Geography.
Our students take the AQA A GCSE Religious Studies specification, opting for the Christianity and Buddhism for 50% of the course, with the other 50% of the course focusing on philosophical and ethical themes. All year 11 students take GCSE Religious Studies.
Our students take the Edexcel Geography GCSE B specification. This is an option subject at GCSE.
Knowledge booklets are created and shared within departments to ensure that all lessons are purposeful and consistent. Beyond KS3, teachers teach within their subject specialism; we would, however, expect some flexibility from all our faculty teachers to be able to teach and resource beyond their specialism when the need arises. A level Theology, Ethics and Philosophy teaching experience is desirable. The ability to teach Psychology is desirable but not essential.
In return for your subject expertise and passion, we offer a research driven programme of CPD plus targeted leadership and development programmes. We also offer a two week October half term.
The Towers School and Sixth Form Centre is an inclusive, academic school that provides equal opportunities for all. We strongly believe in traditional values that ensure a happy, safe and challenging educational environment for every student in our care.
We want students to leave Towers as confident young people who will aspire to great things. We want our students to be good people, with their own moral purpose, treating others with respect and understanding. We want them to care; to be eloquent and passionate; to be critical thinkers making reasoned choices; to have a vision of the world which extends beyond the boundaries of their town and their country; who are interested in what is going on in the world and care enough to want to make a difference.
We believe in the potential of our students and in our ability to help them reach it. We have high expectations of all our students and, as such, we have high expectations of ourselves. We expect students to meet our code of conduct; we uphold a strong sense of discipline because we care. We want every student to learn in the most focused, calm and consistent of surroundings. We offer a curriculum that stretches and challenges, where knowledge and revision is at the heart. We strive for consistency and fairness in all our dealings, being open about our expectations with our whole community.
We are proud of our strong welfare system which cares for and supports our children and their families. This stands at the heart of our school, ensuring the focus is on academic success. Through our curriculum and enrichment programme, we aim to inspire our students to develop themselves as individuals with their own skills, talents, character and passion.
We are proud to be Towers School and we stand together. We are #ProudtobeTowers
Towers School is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and requires all staff and volunteers to share and demonstrate this commitment.
