We have an exciting opportunity for a Head of Geography. The post holder will lead a popular area of the school curriculum. This post is ideally suited for candidates who are ready to move into middle management or for those who are already leading a small department and who would like a new challenge. You should be an enthusiastic, qualified teacher of Geography, able to lead students to exam success with enthusiasm and passion for your subject.
Geography sits in one of our three faculties, is currently a team of four experienced committed staff and is line managed by a Faculty Leader. Exam Results in Geography have room for improvement, especially with the high ability students so the post holder will have to ensure all students and staff deliver improvements. The school currently offers OCR Geography B and GCSE courses begin in Year 9. However, we are happy to review the exam course.

The person appointed will have:
• A commitment to the Catholic ethos of the school
• High standards and expectations
• Highly developed inter personal skills
• A commitment to teamwork
• A positive outlook
