We are seeking to appoint an ambitious and inspirational Teacher of Geography to join our committed team of practitioners in delivering a curriculum which informs, transforms and generates a lifelong love of learning from September 2019.
The successful candidate will have the ability to teach Geography up to Key Stage 5.
Applications from NQTs are welcome as the school has a very strong and well-developed NQT training and support programme. A management/ leadership allowance may also be available for a more experienced candidate able to take on additional curriculum or pastoral responsibility.
Geography forms part of the core Humanities curriculum at Key Stage 3 and is a popular and successful option choice for students at GCSE. The Humanities Faculty benefits from all of the facilities provided by our brand new building including access to a range of ICT/ media equipment and dedicated teaching spaces. The successful candidate will need to work collaboratively with colleagues to deliver an engaging and contextualised curriculum.
The Archbishop Lanfranc Academy opened in September 2014 and moved into its brand new whole-school rebuild in September 2017.
The Academy received a “Good” in all aspects following its first Ofsted inspection in March 2017 and is now working towards being graded as “Outstanding” at its next inspection. The Academy also benefits from an on-site nursery open to both staff and the general public which also has a grading of “Good” from Ofsted.
We are committed to high-quality, collaborative and relevant CPD for all members of staff to enable and support them to make the best possible progress in their role and in their future career development. As a growing school there are many opportunities for ‘in-house’ progression.
The Academy is located within a short walk of Therapia Lane Tram Stop, mid-way between East Croydon and Wimbledon Mainline Stations and underground connections, both of which are approximately 15 minutes by tram from the school.
