The Post

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding Sociology teacher. Our Sociology department thrives on the notions of inclusion, creativity and enthusiasm for the subject. The Sociology team is led by a Head of Sociology 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, Sociology, A Level Law)

The ideal candidate will be passionate about the Sociology curriculum and how this can be taught in an inspiring way to maximise exam success, whilst developing a love for the subject at both GCSE and A level. 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 A level Sociology and has results for the first GCSE results in 2021, and we expect this strong acheivement to continue across the coming year.
