We are currently seeking a highly qualified and ambitious graduate of Psychology to inspire amazingly talented young people to realise their dreams as a Teacher of Psychology in one of the country’s leading state schools. 

Rated Outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in 2012 and 2018, Brampton Manor Academy is a dynamic school that is proud of what it has achieved but is not complacent about the challenges that lie ahead; we are constantly seeking ways to further improve the quality of education on offer to the young people in our care, knowing the transformative impact it can have on their life chances. Applications from NQTs and from experienced teachers who believe in this vision are equally welcome.

The Psychology department is nationally renowned for its academic success, consistently achieving amongst the best GCSE and A Level results in the country. At both GCSE and A Level the majority of students consistently achieve A* or A grades and in 2018 value added was in the top 1% nationally. 

Psychology is a very popular subject choice at both GCSE and A Level, where the AQA specification is delivered by a dedicated team of four specialist teachers, all of whom are themselves high quality Psychology graduates. The department prides itself on the professional development of its staff, who benefit from the support of experienced and passionate colleagues with a track record of delivering impressive outcomes for students. 

There is an average class size of 20 - 25 students at GCSE and we currently have four Year 11 classes. In Year 13 there are more than 100 students studying Psychology in an average class size of 20. Many of those students hold conditional offers to study Psychology at university, including three at the University of Cambridge. 

Students enjoy participating in a range of extra-curricular opportunities outside of the classroom; we regularly have guest lectures in clinical Psychology and our students attend evening lectures at local universities.
