An exciting opportunity has arisen for a passionate and inspirational humanities specialist to join the school as a geography teacher. Our humanities department achieves excellent outcomes at both GCSE and A Level. Students hold the subject in high regard, as is demonstrated by the uptake in the Sixth Form. We are looking for a dynamic, forward thinking geography teacher.
To work at Greensward Academy is to work at a school which puts the child at the centre of everything that they do. If a student’s strength lies in academic rigour, they will be challenged. If it lies in sporting prowess they will be developed. If it lies in creative expression, they will be inspired. The opportunity to work alongside engaged, motivated and resilient students, including those in a high performing Sixth Form, is one to be valued.
As a school, we understand the importance of instilling a sense of community into those who pass through our care whilst at the same time ensuring that, when they leave us, they are ready to shape our globalised world. With an emphasis on good manners, tolerance and acceptance, Greensward Academy can be rightfully proud of its students and staff. With our new buildings and open spaces, a dynamic curriculum offering opportunity for all and a pastoral care which sees everyone as an individual, we are confident that we have the right learning environment to ensure our 21st century learners are ready to embrace the challenges of our 21st century world.
Greensward Academy is a part of the Academies Enterprise Trust (AET), a multi-Academy sponsor which aims to provide the opportunity for all young learners to fulfill their real potential. The Academy is located in Hockley, Essex and has excellent road and rail links.
