Head of Geography
Required for Easter or September 2018
The Royal Harbour Academy is a mixed, non-selective 11-18 foundation school of 900 students on the border of the lovely coastal towns of Ramsgate and Broadstairs in South East Kent. The school is at an exciting time of its development having been formed out of the amalgamation of two schools in 2015. The school is arranged over a split site with Key Stage 3 on our Newlands Lane site and Key Stages 4 and 5 at our Marlowe Way premises. Both sites were built within the last 10 years and the school has invested heavily in technology to support learning. We are an International Baccalaureate Organisation World School and run International Baccalaureate programmes for our 6th Form and Key Stage 3 students. We are in the process of formally academising and work closely with our Coastal Academy Trust partner schools which include Dane Court Grammar School and Cliftonville Primary School, both of whom have been judged outstanding. Recent Ofsted inspections have judged behaviour in the school as good and our last full inspection also graded us as good in all areas.
The Geography Department is central to the future success of the school, has good facilities and a hard-working committed team of specialists. We are seeking a well qualified graduate who has the ability to teach Geography at every level and has the skills to lead the department. If you are ambitious, talented and keen to make sure students progress – then this is the job for you!
Further details and an application form are available from Mrs Christina Jones, the Headteacher’s PA, at the above address or via the school website. Candidates should apply as soon as possible and applications will be dealt with as they arrive. The closing date is midday on Friday 19th January 2018.
