Assistant Curriculum Lead – Humanities (Geography)
The Academy was judged to be ‘good’ by Ofsted inspection in July 2016. The school is highly aspirational, boasting fantastic facilities for both students and staff, including a £5 million new build block, to enable expansion that opened in September. Significant changes have been made in the last year to remove barriers to improvement, and the successful candidate will be joining the school at a critical and exciting time to drive things forward.
The RSA Academy in Tipton (West Midlands) is an oversubscribed and expanding 11-19 school with 1047 students (including Sixth Form). This will rise to 1200 plus sixth form over the next four years. The school has been at the heart of our community since becoming an academy in 2008, and a member of the RSA Family of Academies. The school joined the Central RSA Academies Trust on 1st October 2017.
Supported by an experienced Director of Humanities, we are looking for an excellent Teacher of Geography ready for their 1st step into departmental responsibility who can lead the Geography curriculum. The successful candidate will have a proven track record of enabling high achievement with excellent outcomes at all key stages to move forward and build on the successes of last year’s exam results. You will be passionate about the teaching of Geography and driven to share high quality and innovative practice in the classroom.
We will also consider a dual role with Progress Lead responsibility. The Progress Lead has a teaching timetable as well as responsibility for pastoral support, progress and behaviour management throughout an assigned year group. Supported by a Head of Year (non-teaching), the Progress Lead is a key pastoral leadership post within the school with critical importance for securing excellent progress and wellbeing of the students.
