Teaching is the most rewarding job in the world. We have the opportunity to change students’ lives for the better and you could make a positive impact at St Peter’s School. 

We are a forward thinking and rapidly improving, “good” school that is creating a legacy of learning for our community. Our students Learn, Aspire and Exceed as they work with our highly skilled teaching and associate staff supporting and guiding them.  

St Peter’s is part of the CAM Academy Trust which offers students and staff fantastic potential to collaborate, share and develop a wide range of teaching and learning across the schools in the trust. As a family of schools, we support, share and challenge each other to improve the future lives of all our young people.  

We are currently seeking to develop our existing Humanities department by employing a dynamic and inspiring Teacher of Geography to join our team in motivating and supporting our students to ensure outstanding attainment.  

We are based in Huntingdon, just 12 miles north of Cambridge with its own mainline station connecting with London in less than an hour.  

For the right candidate, we are able to offer the opportunity to teach lessons across the age and ability range from highly aspirational sixth form students getting ready for University to students just starting their secondary school careers. 

The Humanities Department has shown sustained success in driving forward GCSE results and is looking forward to continuing this into the future.  Our provision is expanding and we are particularly interested in increasing our learning outside the classroom opportunities with an emphasis on post-16 independent fieldwork, reflecting the requirements of the new A-level. The post would therefore be suitable for both an experienced teacher who wishes to take on additional responsibility or an ambitious NQT.       

We are a supportive, hardworking and friendly team of staff with a desire to raise student achievement beyond expectation.  We have extensive resources to support teaching and learning and are constantly reflecting on our curriculum to make further improvements.  We are seeking someone who will show their enthusiasm and demonstrate their commitment to contributing to the innovation of pedagogy in our flourishing Humanities team.

The closing date for receipt of applications is midday on Monday 22nd January 2018. Interviews will be conducted later that same week.
