“King’s Leadership Academy Warrington – Winner of the first National Character Awards”
The Governing body are seeking to appoint a passionate Head of Geography to join an outstanding faculty.
King’s is an 11-18 academy which was founded on traditional values and international research. The academy is highly regarded and significantly oversubscribed. In 2014 Ofsted said, “Achievement was beyond academic measures”. We believe every child can succeed and that great teaching is the key to that success. In our 2017 GCSE results 93% of students passed their English and math’s and 63% achieved the challenging English Baccalaureate. King’s is a vibrant school that really cares about its staff, this position is available due to the school's natural expansion. We now wish to appoint a highly motivated individual who loves Geography and shares our vision for making all students successful citizens in tomorrow’s world.
King’s is located in Warrington with good access to both the M6 and M62. The academy recently moved to a state of the art new build and is now situated on a fifteen-acre green field campus. Class sizes at the academy are below average and every student has access to a personal computer tablet. Innovation is one of our strengths, which supports our modern approach to education alongside our commitment to high expectations.
We are unique in our specialism in that we seek to develop leadership skills in our students, combined with great academic performance. As a result of our character education programme, Ofsted were pleased to report that our children exhibited maturity beyond their years and that their behaviour was exemplary. Every student at the academy is conscientious, hardworking and an absolute pleasure to teach, our teacher’s never have ‘Sunday night dread’. For the successful candidate, this represents a rare opportunity to join a caring team of outstanding practitioners, dedicated to each other’s growth and the future of every child.
This position also comes with a wide range of additional benefits, including free access to our sporting facilities, fitness studio and fast track promotion pathways.

If you are someone with passion, integrity and determination we offer outstanding career prospects at King’s Warrington.
