The Role

We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, creative and enthusiastic Head of Geography to teach KS3 and KS4 across the ability range. 

The successful candidate will need to be an engaging and forward thinking teacher who will lead and build on the success of the department. We are looking for an outstanding teacher, with the ability to deliver high quality teaching in all key stages, with a particular emphasis on ensuring excellent outcomes for students at Key Stage 4.  

This post would suit a first time promotion as the Multi-Academy Trust has a geography consultant who can provide support to the successful candidate.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to shape the lives of young people in and around the Eccles community. If you think you can help transform the opportunities for the community that we serve then we would like to hear from you.   

Ellesmere Park High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful applicants. 

Background to Ellesmere Park High School  

We currently cater for 600 students up to the age of 16 and moved into a brand new, purpose built building in September 2014 and renamed as Ellesmere Park High School. Our number on roll is set to increase yearly until we reach our 750 capacity. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and we value the inclusive nature of our school community. We also have an ASC (Autistic Spectrum Condition) Unit in purpose built accommodation.  

Our school is a vibrant school, where all are encouraged to be expressive, creative and enjoy their learning in a positive atmosphere.  Our school is an inclusive school, where all are valued and thrive in a safe, caring and supportive environment. We welcome everyone to our diverse community and encourage friendly and mutually respectful relationships.  Our school is a proud school, where all aspire to be successful in whatever they do. We strive to enable all to be lifelong learners, equipped to fulfil our dreams.  

Following on from our Ofsted Inspection in 2014 in which we were rated GOOD we took the decision to ask to become part of a multi academy trust and in July 2017 EPHS joined Consilium Academy Trust. This is a new MAT which values the uniqueness of its schools and it currently has 3 Salford schools in very close proximity to each other so collaborative working and school to school support is a feature of our work. There are other Consilium schools in Doncaster and the North East.  

To apply for the post please complete an application form, supported by a covering letter of no more than 2 sides of A4 (minimum font size 10) explaining, with examples, how you meet the requirements set out in the person specification. Please include evidence of your examination outcomes for the last 2 years with your application.   

Applications can be sent electronically to laura.byron@salford.gov.uk or posted to the school, marked for the attention of the Headteacher, Mrs H Aaron. 

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed. Please contact Laura Byron, Headteacher's PA on the email address above or by telephone to arrange a visit.

The closing date for applications is Tuesday 8th May at 12:00pm and interviews will be held on Thursday 10th May.
