We are looking for an exceptional candidate to join our Geography department where you will be supported and developed to ensure that you deliver inspirational and innovative teaching on a daily basis.

We work closely with History and RE, and contribute to developing learning across all humanities disciplines.

The successful candidate will be joining a school which is rapidly improving and where leadership and management, behaviour and the Sixth Form were all judged as good by Ofsted in September 2016.

The leadership in the school was personally praised in a letter from Ofsted’s Chief Inspector, Amanda Spielman to the Principal in January 2017 which stated that they had ‘transformed all aspects of the school’.

Since last September the school has made further improvements to leadership to secure the next phase of our long term success. This led to an implementation dip in our GCSE progress in 2017 but our current projections strongly indicate that the results will significantly improve and that our students will achieve good GCSE exam results in 2018.

We are looking for someone who:

· Is passionate about school improvement and developing students to achieve their very best

· Who has high standards of expectation for themselves and others and through this will support the fostering of a culture of excellence across the school

· Will be an excellent member of the department and will show dedication, drive and commitment to our goal of ensuring the highest standards in education for our students

Why work at Pudsey Grangefield School?

· The opportunity to play a key part in the continuing transformation of the school

· The successful candidate will join a dynamic and enthusiastic team of staff who are ensuring our students are successful in every way

· We offer excellent CPD through our membership of the Red Kite Teaching Alliance and place staff development at the forefront of our organisation

· The school is at the point of securing good outcomes from our students in 2018 – this is an opportunity for the successful candidate to secure these improvements and to be part of the drive forward to further success for everyone.

· Be part of a supportive organisation which prides itself on high standards for staff and students 

· Work in an award-winning state of art building
