Contract type: Full Time
Salary: Inner London Mainscale/Upper Scale
Contract term: Permanent

We are looking for an excellent teacher to join our highly successful Geography department. You will join us at a very exciting time as we have an impressive set of 2017 examination results to build on and a progress 8 score of 0.5 which puts the school in the top 12% nationally. This is a new build school with excellent facilities and a learning community that is cohesive and supportive.

This position presents an excellent opportunity for a motivated teacher to develop their skills across all key stages and abilities up to KS5 in a stimulating and supportive environment. We invite both NQTs and experienced teachers to apply.

The Geography department is a highly successful department in the School. The GCSE results for summer 2017 was 67% A*-C. The department prides itself on its commitment to excellence and the value it adds to pupil’s achievement. Geography is a popular subject throughout the year groups. We follow a three year KS3 throughout which pupils are encouraged to develop key literacy, numeracy and geographic skills. At KS4 the department follows the AQA specification and would ideally be looking for a candidate who has experience of this, however, this is not a necessity. At A –levels pupils again follow AQA.

The department has a commitment to enriching pupils experience at Geography through extra-curricular activities (including after school and occasional weekends) field and residential trips both in the UK and abroad. These are done throughout the academic year. The success of the department has resulted in a large number of pupils who study geography at A-level choosing Geography or a Geography related subject at university- an achievement that the department is proud of. A new member of the team should share the department’s passion and ethos towards this.

To teach at Our Lady’s Convent High School is an exciting and rewarding career choice. We have a forward thinking teaching culture; determined to place professional learning at the centre of our Teaching and Learning work. We are a school that has an absolute belief in giving our young people the very best opportunities and have value added results that show we are truly aspirational for all our students.

Our Lady’s convent High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. The successful candidate will be DBS checked at an enhanced level.
