Co-Educational (3-16) Day and Weekly Boarding
HEAD OF GEOGRAPHY - YEARS 6 -11
Required for September 2021
Belmont School is an independent day, flexi and weekly boarding school for children aged 2 to 16 teaching a wide-ranging curriculum leading to GCSE. Currently, the school is in the process of expanding to 16 years old, and so the top year is Year 9. The first Year 11 cohort will be in place in academic year 2022-2023, sitting their GCSEs in 2023.
This post is for a Geography teacher to teach in Years 7 to 11 with some possibility of teaching upper key Stage 2 (Years 5 or 6). This post is likely to suit someone looking for a new challenge who has experience in secondary Geography teaching and is happy to take responsibility for planning and delivery of Geography in the senior school. Applications are welcomed from all levels of experience. There is only one senior Geography teacher and he/she is responsible to the Headmistress for the day-to-day administration and teaching of Geography, reporting to their direct line manager who is the Academic Deputy Head.
In addition to leading and teaching Geography, the successful candidate is likely to be able to offer other skills in a second subject or Games. The successful candidate may also be expected to fulfil the role of a Form Tutor if necessary. The successful candidate must demonstrate a willingness to work closely with other staff and with Geography teachers in the prep school in order to provide smooth and consistent teaching of Geography across the School.
Closing date extended to 15th April 2021 with interviews shortly after.
Staff are eligible for a staff discount of 50% against the basic school fee for any children who attend Belmont School.
Free meals, refreshments and free parking are also available on site.
