Examination results are very good at both GCSE and Sixth Form and many girls choose to continue studying Geography at University, including Oxford and Cambridge. The successful applicant should be able to teach Geography from Y7 up to and including Sixth Form where the subject is offered at A Level and as part of the International Baccalaureate. The ability to use ICT to enhance the teaching and learning in the Geography curriculum is expected. An enthusiasm for and a willingness to assist in both field work and overseas enrichment trips is also essential. Whilst the post would suit an experienced teacher looking for reduced hours and the challenge of working with academic, motivated girls, all applications from NQTs would also be looked upon favourably.
