Glebelands School is looking to appoint an enthusiastic and dynamic candidate with relevant experience to lead our successful and thriving Geography Department. We need a Head of Geography, starting September 2018, with a commitment to excellence and a focus to develop a love for Geography at all levels. The successful candidate will balance a determined work ethic and strong academic rigour with good humour and positivity. 

This is a great opportunity for someone who has experience but is ready to take on the responsibility of being a leader, or a current Head of Department who is looking for a new challenge. 

The successful candidate will:

  • be an excellent classroom practitioner with the ability to inspire both students and staff
  • have the ability to raise attainment through vision, commitment and the determination to drive forward standards
  • have excellent leadership skills
  • be able to communicate with all stakeholders to effect change

At Glebelands School we are looking to recruit someone with the energy and drive to play a key role in our school improvement. We strongly believe that we must all continue learning from each other and will therefore be appointing a high quality individual who is not afraid to take risks and who will always look to improve and share practice with colleagues.

Glebelands is a mixed, 11-16 comprehensive school at the heart of our community in this pleasant area of Surrey. The school is near Guildford and within easy reach of London and the south coast. 

In the most recent full inspection Ofsted wrote ‘This is a good school where students have a positive attitude to learning and a relatively high proportion of teaching is outstanding’. 

Following a short inspection in November 2017: Ofsted quoted: ‘Leaders take workload into account when implementing policies and procedures so as to avoid placing unnecessary burdens on staff.’

If you are an effective practitioner with the ability to inspire and motivate students and want to support us on our journey to outstanding we would like to hear from you.
