This is a great opportunity to lead the Geography Department in a highly successful academy.
Geography is a very popular subject at GCSE and the Geography department is a well-resourced department comprising a dedicated team of colleagues of various levels of experience and backgrounds, committed to ensuring the highest possible learning experience to the students at Moor End Academy.
The Geography department currently consists of three teachers. The Geography department is supported by an administrative assistant and all rooms have their own interactive whiteboards. Geography is part of the core curriculum in years 7 – 9 and is taught as a discrete subject. In years 10 and 11 students follow the AQA syllabus Geography course. The department is committed to teaching geographical concepts and issues through high quality and exciting teaching and learning strategies. As part of the EBACC, all students study GCSE Geography or GCSE History (half each) in Years 9, 10 and 11.
The Academy is accredited by the Edward de Bono Foundation as an official Centre for Creative and Critical Thinking and these skills are at the centre of our teaching. Students enjoy Geography and they respond positively to our imaginative and stimulating approach.
This is a great opportunity for you to come in with some creative, imaginative ideas to help build a curriculum that supports progress from Year 7 through to Year 11 within the eBacc curriculum. Learning outside the classroom is a big focus of Geography and field trips provide an ideal opportunity to show our students real Geography.
As subject leader for Geography in an Outstanding Academy, a wealth of opportunities for personal and professional development will be open to you. Moor End Academy is a fantastic place to work and Geography plays an important part of this, we never stand still, constantly looking at ways to improve and offer our students the best learning experience we can.
