At SGHS we provide an excellent and challenging education which seeks to enable all students to make maximum progress in their learning and gain a great sense of personal development and achievement. We strongly believe in personalisation and encouraging enquiring minds. The school highly values the importance of developing a community environment in which mutual respect and individual talents are nurtured.
This is an exciting opportunity for a well-qualified Teacher of Psychology. The successful candidate will be expected to play a full part in the academic, pastoral and social life of the school, to act as personal tutor and to take part in the school's programme of professional development.
We have a fantastic team of staff and you will be fully supported by an experienced faculty lead, who shares a vision of effective teaching and learning founded on collaborative planning, assessment and instruction, and who help each other to continually improve practice. We have an open-door culture and reflective ethos where we use lesson study to learn from each other all the time.
We are seeking a well-qualified, lively, highly motivated specialist and innovative thinker to further strengthen the provision in Psychology in this outstanding school.
You will be able to demonstrate up-to-date knowledge of teaching, learning and personalisation strategies and be responsible for maintaining the highest quality of monitoring and evaluating whilst improving the standard of achievement for all students. You will be confident in your abilities to teach effectively across KS5 and a specialism in Psychology is essential. You will be adept in creating a supportive, encouraging and safe learning environment for students of all diverse backgrounds.
This is a great opportunity to join a growing and thriving Multi-Academy Trust and a highly experienced Teaching School Alliance (Northern Lights TSA) and SCITT to develop your career in a Nationally recognised school of excellence.
