The Grammar School at Leeds has an exciting opportunity available in our Junior School from January 2018 on a fixed term basis until July 2018.
Our stunning purpose built Junior School caters for boys and girls from 7-11 and on the same site as the senior school. With five forms in each year, GSAL Juniors is one of the largest of its kind (c. 400 pupils), yet we retain an intimate, supportive and caring environment, with the focus strongly upon academic excellence and high expectations for the progress of each child.
The curriculum of the Junior School is both broad and demanding. The national curriculum is not slavishly followed but is incorporated into the School’s scheme of work. There is a wide range of extracurricular activities offered within the Junior School, including music, sport and drama. There are several specialist teachers delivering their subject across the Key Stage in MFL, Science, Music, PE and games although there is flexibility for class teachers to deliver these subjects if they have the relevant expertise.
Our successful candidate will be able to lead their class forward through excellent teaching resulting in first-class learning. They will be committed to the success of their pupils across the ability range and will demonstrate outstanding pastoral care.
In return we offer the chance to work in facilities unrivalled in the north of England, wonderful children and being part of a high achieving and professional team.
There are also a range of non contractual benefits available including salary sacrifice schemes and access to the school gym and pool.
Full details of the post are shown in the job description and person specification on the school’s website.
Application is by completion of the online GSAL application form.
