Do you think that geography is the gateway to all other subjects? Do you think that geography is the best subject on the curriculum? Do you want to make sure that students share this passion for your subject? If so you will fit in to our department.

We are looking for an enthusiastic teacher who can convey their passion for geography to the students in the school. The uptake of geography at GCSE is over 65% of the cohort each year with ever-increasing numbers at GCSE.  As part of the Humanities team, you will be expected to teach geography across all key stages and also support history and RE at Keystage 3.  

The person appointed will be well supported through our teaching and learning coach, a well-established professional studies programme and through a comprehensive induction process.  So if you feel you do not have the right skill yet then we will get you there, whether that’s in subject knowledge, classroom management or time management, we will support you.  

Our recent OFSTED inspection in February 2019 made the following comments about teaching and relationships at school: 

  • Teachers are wholehearted in their desire for pupils to achieve well. Relationships between teachers and pupils are constructive and are built on trust and mutual respect. This enables pupils to have the confidence to ask for help and support when they are stuck or unsure. 
  • Pupils conduct themselves in an orderly manner. They are welcoming, self-assured and act in a polite and respectful way. Lunchtimes are calm, with groups of pupils engaged in friendly conversation. 
  • The majority of pupils display a positive attitude towards their learning. They are keen to succeed and value the efforts made by their teachers in supporting them in lessons.
  • Pupils say that they value teachers’ advice in identifying the progress they are making. 

We are a school that have a desire and understanding of how to succeed and provide an environment that is stimulating to students and staff alike. We understand that this can only be achieved by investing in our staff and ensuring they are supported in their own professional development. We have high expectations of staff, as we do students.  So if you are someone who wants to develop as a professional and have a real impact on individuals then we are the place for you. 

You will be joining a highly skilled staff, who are supportive, show determination and resolve. We have a desire to continue our journey to being the best we can be, we are true believers in ‘better never stops’ as it is the continual development that makes us what we are.  We are also a school where team work and enjoyment is central to our success as it is these that keeps us going when times are tough.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school and ask to speak to Mr Tony Woodley, Head of Geography. For further information about the school please visit our website www.beaconsfield.sch.uk the vacancy section can  be found under joining us.
