As a Teacher of Geography, this is an exciting opportunity to join us at an important time of our history; we are firmly on our way to achieving successful ratings from Ofsted with our sights set on becoming an “Outstanding” school. Our most recent Ofsted inspection this academic year regarded many aspects as 'Good' already including Leadership and Management, personal development, behaviour and welfare.
The successful candidate will inspire and motivate students to ensure that they achieve their full potential. You will be engaging, enigmatic and enthusiastic while maximising the enjoyment, engagement and outcomes of young people within the faculty. You will develop innovative, non-traditional approaches to the subject matter in order to ensure appropriate access and achievement for all students.
This role would be suitable for either a Newly Qualified Teacher or a more experienced colleague; enthusiasm, passion and a commitment to inspiring young people are more important than years of experience.
