The Federation and Academy
Haberdashers’ Aske’s Crayford Academy is a very successful 3-18 school, proud to belong to the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Federation. We offer an exciting and innovative model for education within the community that we serve, with broad appeal to parents and pupils alike.
Offering education across all key stages which has consistently been judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted, most recently in May 2018
Facilities at the school are first class; from the building itself to the resources which support the delivery of a broad curriculum including an extremely popular and well maintained Learning Resource Centre. Our playing fields, gymnasium, drama theatre and ICT facilities all contribute to ensuring we deliver an education for character, a feature of all Haberdashers’ schools that is part of our DNA.
We take a comprehensive mix of children and expect nothing less than the highest personal goals for each pupil. Where pupils are disadvantaged, we expect them to make rapid progress to catch up with their peers. Our focus is to ensure each child we teach can read, write and do mathematics to a good standard in order to be successful in their education and life.
Haberdashers’ Aske’s Crayford Academy is 30 minutes from London Bridge by train and the school’s proximity to the capital is a strong factor in enabling teachers to enhance the cultural experience for our pupils through enrichment activities.
We are looking to appoint a highly competent Geography teacher with strong subject knowledge, and an infectious enthusiasm for learning, to support the continuing development of the Geography curriculum and to join a dynamic and forward thinking department.
The post holder will be an innovative and forward thinking individual, who has a problem solving approach and a positive outlook. You will be able to inspire a love of Geography into our students and contribute fully to an active Humanities team. We will expect you to teach pupils across the full age and ability range present in the school in order to ensure the highest possible standards of pupil achievement, personal development and wellbeing. You will make a significant contribution to generating interest in Geography at KS5, as we continue to develop our KS5 offer in the Sixth Form.
The successful candidate will be a strong, well-qualified practitioner with a relevant degree, and a teaching qualification, who is keen to develop their own practice to the highest level and take advantage of our excellent professional learning. The candidate must be a compelling communicator with an ability to champion the subject to pupils with a fully comprehensive range of abilities.
