Teacher of Philosophy and Ethics
We are seeking an inspirational teacher of Philosophy and Ethics to join our school.
Required for September 2017
Lea Manor High School is an 11 - 16 mixed comprehensive in Luton. Our recent Ofsted in December, 2013, stated: 'Classrooms are often vibrant and stimulating environments, for example the music and drama rooms. This helps students become interested in the lessons.' 'Students behave consistently well in class. They enjoy their lessons and find the work interesting. They participate with enthusiasm in discussions. In group activities, students work positively with all their classmates, not just their best friends.'
We are seeking an inspirational teacher of Philosophy and Ethics to join our school. In Philosophy and Ethics students study important issues concerning our society including the role of sex, marriage, gender inequality and discrimination, war, violence and terrorism. In addition to this, on the new curriculum equal importance is placed upon the study of two faiths, Christianity and Islam, and the belief systems of these religions. Our expectations are that students come equipped with the tools to learn and open their minds to the views of others, to be respectful but willing to challenge others on their views as well as challenge their own viewpoints, opinions and stances.
Recently refurbished, our classrooms are colourful, innovative and have the latest ICT equipment. A state of the art theatre gives us the opportunity to develop confident young people who engage in their lessons, look to learn more and have clear aspirations. We put learning at the centre of what we do and our expectations are very high. Everyone works as a team and this passion has given us a proven track record of success with middle leaders giving them the opportunity to develop their leadership style. Our facilities allow us to offer a subsidised gym with a swimming pool, laptops for all staff and regular specialist CPD.
We would encourage you to visit us and meet our staff and students.
Lea Manor High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the DBS.
