Are you a talented and dynamic practitioner? Do you wish play a key role in a high-performing and highly successful school in the heart of East London?

Oaklands School is a fully inclusive school with a wealth of opportunities for all learners to achieve their full potential. We are a school which serves the local community and promotes co-operation, responsibility and respect. This is an exciting time in the development of the school. We recently opened our new Sixth Form building and we are due to have further extensive building work in the next 18 months as we increase our school roll. This is because of our successes over the last ten years.  Our Progress and Attainment 8 Scores are well above national averages and as a result our Sixth Form is comparatively large compared to the size of our lower school, with many students going on to the top universities to study a wide range of subjects.

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, ambitious and outstanding Geography practitioner to lead and co-ordinate the delivery of Geography at Key Stages 3-5 for a period of maternity cover. The successful candidate will be an outstanding teacher, have a proven track record of high outcomes for learners in Key Stages 3 - 5 and will be able to manage and lead a team. 

At Oaklands we have highly committed and dedicated staff who work very hard so that our students can achieve their high expectations. 

We are keen to hear from you if you:-

• Have an excellent track-record as a Geography teacher 

• Are able to raise further student performance at all Key Stages

• Are ambitious, hard-working and a team player

We can offer you the opportunity to join:

• A highly committed and dedicated staff.

• Excellent CPD opportunities 

• Students who love their school, are ambitious and want to learn

Oaklands is an Equal Opportunities employer and welcomes applications for all posts from appropriately qualified persons regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, religion or belief. 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  The successful candidate will be DBS checked.
