Advert

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding Geography teacher. Our Geography Department thrives on the notions of inclusion, creativity and enthusiasm for the subject. We deliver a broad curriculum building skills through the teaching. The Geography team is led by a Head of Geography and works closely with the other Humanities subjects, as such it is anticipated that the post holder will be able to teach within one of the other Humanities subject areas (Religious Studies, History, Sociology, A Level Law). 

The ideal candidate will be passionate about the Geography curriculum and how this can be taught in an inspiring way to maximise exam success, whilst developing a love for the subject and an engagement with all of the subjects within the discipline. We are looking for someone who can spark students’ passion for the subject, and to help students to lead successful future lives. The ability to extend students’ engagement beyond the school day, through extra-curricular would be an advantage. 

The department attained strong results last summer, in both  GCSE and A level Geography, and we expect this strong acheivement to continue across the coming year. 

Our ideal candidate will display:

  • A passion for teaching Geography with evidence of enabling students to surpass expectations.
  • Experience in teaching classroom Geography at Key Stages 3-5 with a good curriculum knowledge and understanding of GCSE and A-Level Geography requirements. 
  • Experience of using data to push students to (and beyond) their targets.
