Founded in 1807, Mill Hill School is an independent co-educational boarding and day school with 715 pupils aged between 13 and 18, of whom 275 are in the Sixth Form. The School is one of four in the Mill Hill School Foundation, which comprises Pre-preparatory, Preparatory and Senior Schools as well an on-site International School.
We are situated in a magnificent 120-acre parkland campus on the edge of the North London Green Belt, providing a wonderful environment in which to work. The School is very much a community, particularly given the central importance of boarding: we are unusual for a London school to be offering full and weekly boarding, with over 180 boarding pupils.
A well-qualified and enthusiastic graduate is required for September 2018 or January 2019 to lead our large, dynamic and successful Geography Department.
At all levels our key aim is to stimulate an interest in and enjoyment of the subject, and the department has a good record of academic success. The curriculum is designed to build on the Common Entrance experience, to provide a solid foundation for further study at GCSE and to give those pupils who leave the subject a broad base of geographical knowledge.
Fieldwork is an integral part of the teaching of Geography at Mill Hill. Our GCSE and A-level cohorts are taken on day and short residential trips in the UK during term-time, to destinations such as Walton-On-the-Naze and North Yorkshire. The department also offers popular overseas fieldwork visits during school holidays. Recent destinations have included Iceland and Morocco.
The successful candidate will be expected to play a full part in the extra curricular life of the School. He or she will be paid at the appropriate point of the Mill Hill School salary scale.
Further information on the post, together with the application form, is available by email or post and on the School’s website www.millhill.org.uk
The School and all its staff are committed to safeguarding the welfare of children. The School is registered with the DBS and successful applicants will be required to complete successfully the Disclosure procedure at the Enhanced level.
