Do you want to teach in a school where OFSTED describes pupils as being “courteous and polite” and “arrive at lessons on time and ready to learn”? Do you want to take an innovative, effective and time efficient approach to marking?

At Bedminster Down School we are looking for a full-time, committed and dynamic professional to join our growing Geography department.  In 2016, 52% of our Year 11 students achieved at least A*- C grade in geography.  

Our school was rated Good in November 2014 and we are now seeking a hardworking, dedicated, team player who is passionate about their subject, communicates well with young people and can make a positive contribution in our move towards Outstanding.     

We operate a ‘Ready to Learn’ behaviour system in the school and classroom behaviour is exceptional – allowing teachers to focus on providing high quality learning opportunities.  The successful candidate will be joining a well-established, friendly and strongly-collaborative team who constantly innovate to help pupils make outstanding progress.      

As a school and a department we operate differentiation and targeted interventions through effective planning and marking, utilizing ‘live marking’ and ‘impact marking’ strategies to aid in our delivery of outstanding lessons and to inform pupil progress.  

Applications should include: 

  • Completed application form 
  • An accompanying letter of no more than two sides of A4; stating your reasons for applying and clearly showing how your experience and skills have prepared you for this post. 

Closing date is 12 noon on 29th June 2017 Interviews will be held as soon as possible after the closing date  Please forward application forms and letters to Miss T Smith by 12 noon on 29th June 2017
