TEACHER OF GEOGRAPHY
This is an exciting opportunity for a specialist Geography teacher with a passion for their subject, relevant experience and a willingness to get involved in the life of this wonderful and unique school.
Hanford is located in some of the most beautiful countryside in Dorset. It is one of a handful of girls only boarding/day prep schools in the UK. It is housed in a striking Jacobean manor, surrounded by bucolic countryside and beautiful gardens. The happy, supportive atmosphere, nurtured by Hanford’s staff, is in large part responsible for the girls’ impressive achievements - last year's scholarship success demonstrates this; there were 12 awards to schools including: Marlborough, Sherborne Girls and Bryanston.
We offer our staff the freedom to get the most out of their subject, not just for the education of our girls, but also for themselves - as we believe that enjoyment is infectious. We look for people who are open to new ideas and prepared to challenge our thinking. We offer excellent CPD opportunities as well as the option to explore working across subjects through our curriculum groups.
We have recently introduced into our daily teaching The Character Curriculum which sits alongside the subject matter and is designed to give the girls the opportunity to develop key skills and attributes that will prepare them for later life.
The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching Geography to all year groups in the school - Y4-8.
Hanford are committed to promoting the welfare of children and young people and employees are expected to share this commitment. All members of staff must have an enhanced DBS and prohibition order clearance. They must be aware of and follow the safeguarding, Prevent Duty, anti-bullying and behaviour and discipline policies of the school, and partake in training on safeguarding, prevent duty and personal welfare. There is regular training in safeguarding provided by the school.
