Are you a dedicated and enthusiastic teacher who is seeking a new challenging role in a school where ‘Aspiration and Support for all’ is always at the forefront of their students’ lerning? A fantastic opportunity has arisen at Boroughbridge High School for a Geography teacher to join their supportive and friendly team.

We require an enthusiastic and committed teacher of Geography to cover a period of maternity leave starting 30 October until the end of June 2018, in the first instance. The ideal candidate will be highly motivated about teaching and learning and committed to raising the standards of our successful Geography department. The post will be diverse and will give you the opportunity to teach across different key stages ranging from KS3 to KS5; experience teaching across all of these key stages is therefore desirable.

This is an exciting time to join the school as, having gained a ‘Good’ Ofsted judgement in January, we are now determined to move to Outstanding. Ofsted commented that ‘Pupils feel well cared for and supported’ and ‘Pupils have very positive attitudes to all aspects of their learning’. The successful applicant will be a huge part of the development of our school and will help us strive to make Bouroughbridge High School an ‘Outstanding’ place for children to learn.

In return for your hard work and dedication to our school we can offer you a range of benefits. As an employee of Boroughbridge High School you will be entitled to our range of rewards on the NYCC ‘Everybody Benefits’ scheme. These include access to free childcare vouchers as well as numerous retail discounts. As a school we will also strive to support you though your professional development. 

Boroughbridge High School is an 11-18 Maintained LA School with 656 students on roll, with 71 in the Sixth Form. It serves a largely rural catchment area, including the attractive market town of Boroughbridge, and drawing some students from the city of Ripon. The school is in a great location and is in easy reach of York, Harrogate, Ripon and Leeds.
