Chiltern Hills AcademyBuckinghamshire

Chiltern Hills Academy invites applications for the opportunity to join the staff of a successful, mixed 11-18 Church of England Academy. Based in the market town of Chesham, Buckinghamshire, we are located in the Chiltern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty conveniently situated at the end of the London Underground Metropolitan Line. 

We are seeking to appoint, from September 2021, a full-time dynamic teacher of Geography. The successful candidate will be teaching Geography to GCSE and A Level. An interest in teaching another humanities subject at GCSE/A Level would be an advantage.  They will be fully involved in departmental development, target setting and evaluation of student progress and will possess the following attributes: 

  •  An outstanding classroom practitioner 
  • Highly developed inter-personal skills
  • High expectations for student achievement

The Humanities department is fun and lively so a good sense of humour is essential. We teach the AQA syllabus at both GCSE and A Level and are a very popular and expanding subject in the Academy. As a department we pride ourselves on excellent relations with students and other departments. We value learning outside the classroom and there are opportunities to run fieldwork trips across the Key Stages. We also run a very popular trip to Iceland. 

Applications from NQTs, experienced teachers or those returning to the profession will be welcome.  We are committed to the development our staff; to support them to further their career, progress professionally and develop their teaching and leadership skills.

We have been graded ‘good’ following our latest SIAMS inspection (March 2020). “The academy is highly inclusive, and tireless in supporting all of its pupils and staff. Because of this, each person is known, nurtured and inspired. This enables them to make strong progress from their starting points”. Our OFSTED inspection in February 2017 also judged the school as ‘good’ in all categories.

We have recently embarked on the next stage of our school development programme to accommodate growing numbers and add to our well-resourced teaching environment.
