St. Mary’s is a highly regarded, oversubscribed and successful school with a caring ethos and high standards. The Directors wish to appoint a teacher who has the relevant knowledge and expertise to teach Geography to Key Stage 3 and 4 with a potential to teach Key Stage 5. 

We are seeking to appoint a colleague who is or wants to develop into an outstanding Teacher of Geography and contribute to the department’s further development. The successful candidate will need to be able to teach Geography to Key Stage 3 and 4 with      a potential to teach Key Stage 5.

Our Diocesan Inspection Report (March 2017) graded us as “outstanding” and the Ofsted Report (March 2017) stated:

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the inspection of your predecessor school. 

Pupils spoken to during the inspection showed great pride in their school and parents wholeheartedly appreciate the efforts made by staff. 

Comments from parents such as, ‘The staff go above and beyond what is expected’ and ‘The staff clearly have the best interests of the children at heart’ were typical. 

Staff were equally positive; their comments portray a school where people are valued and supported. One member of staff put this very clearly: ‘Each and every pupil knows there are people in school who care deeply for them…who will go the extra mile for them…that is something of which I am incredibly proud.’

An outstanding induction programme, friendly staff, high quality professional cover supervisors, ICT technicians and admin support and a strong collegiate ethos make St. Mary’s a great place to work.

We have benefited from a £22.5 million capital build that has transformed the Academy’s      learning environment.

We would be delighted to receive an application from you to join us!
