We are looking for a high-quality professional who has the highest expectations of themselves and our pupils. 

If you provide high-quality teaching and have a natural enthusiasm for improving the life chances of our children, then this could be the role for you.

About the Role

We wish to recruit someone who is passionate about geography and about building on pupils’ problem-solving, communication, negotiation, leadership and decision-making skills.

  • high standards of professionalism;
  • a courteous manner;
  • a record of high-quality teaching;

We are making substantial improvements in all areas and investing heavily in our staffing structure to continue this momentum.

With plenty of countryside on the doorstep, it’s surprising that it’s only an hour away from London.
