We are seeking to appoint a passionate and highly-qualified teacher to join a successful and lively PSHE / Citizenship department. All students take PHSE / Citizenship in KS3 and KS4. The successful candidate should be able to offer Politics to A-level. Politics has a very high take up in the Sixth Form, with the numbers growing rapidly and consistently over the last few years. The PSHE / Citizenship department was judged ‘good with many outstanding features’ in its last external review and is now focused on securing ‘outstanding’. The TLR would be negotiable depending on experience; there is a potential opportunity to lead a wider Social Sciences faculty including line management of A-Level Sociology and Psychology, with a commensurate TLR.

The PHSCE department is an outward facing department which offers many enrichment opportunities. For example, all students in Year 10 participate in the First Give philanthropy competition. Students of Politics benefit from expert speakers to the school and also from the opportunity to experience specialist lectures and visits. Recent school trips have included the Houses of Parliament, and to the US to campaign in the 2016 election. The department is heavily involved in Initial Teacher Education – supporting all routes including School Direct.

Lampton School is a mixed, multi-ethnic 11-18 school that converted to Academy status in September 2010. We are a National Teaching School and have IIP Status. Lampton School was judged as "outstanding" in all categories by Ofsted in May 2008 and again in 2013. It was also featured in the Ofsted report 'Twelve outstanding secondary schools - Excelling against the odds'.

Lampton School actively encourages and supports the safeguarding and protection of all its pupils. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure.
