Teacher of Geography
Required from September 2018 Outer London Pay Scale
Woodcote High School has long been a top choice for parents in the Coulsdon & Purley area of South London and is heavily over-subscribed. Located in a pleasant suburban setting on the borders of Surrey, Sutton and Croydon, the school has a rural feel but is officially in the Outer London salary band.
Judged “good” by Ofsted in January 2015 in all areas and reaffirmed in March 2018, inspectors praised our students as “courteous, respectful and keen to talk about their achievements.”
GCSE results are way above average and in 2017. The school achieved a Progress 8 score of +0.25. A Level results are improving rapidly and the 2018 inspection noted that “Strong leadership, positive relationships and high-quality teaching are contributing to the growing success of your sixth form.”
Consistently one of Croydon’s top performing schools, teachers rate Woodcote as an enjoyable place to work due to the “fabulous students and supportive colleagues”.
This is a terrific opportunity for an innovative teacher to join our forward-looking and successful Geography Department and to help shape the future of the department whilst gaining valuable experience to support your future career ambitions.
Applications are welcome from both experienced Geography teachers and NQT’s who are ambitious to progress further.
Pre-application visits are welcomed and encouraged so please telephone the school or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to arrange an informal visit before you apply.
