We need an outstanding teacher to join our high-achieving Geography department 4 days a week. 

Durham Johnston is a truly comprehensive school with very high levels of achievement in the heart of Durham City. We have a regional and national reputation for academic excellence. We take great pride in our history and understand the transformational nature of a good education. As a school we are driven by what works best for both students and staff. In practical terms, this means that we only make changes that we think will genuinely improve the school, we have no interest in change for its own sake.  We do not believe that there is a single way to teach or assess and believe that teachers, as well trained individuals, should have the professionalism to both work independently and collaborate effectively. We are a friendly and welcoming school that is inclusive for both staff and students. We have a well-established school ethos which is based upon high achievement and the importance of a rounded education that opens doors for students in later life regardless of social circumstance; we prioritise social justice in an increasingly unequal society. As teachers we believe that it is important to behave ethically and we take great pride in public service. We work very effectively as a staff and are always keen to develop and support new colleagues.   

This post is suitable for both new entrants to the profession and established teachers seeking to widen their experience or return to the classroom from promoted posts.
