TEACHER OF GEOGRAPHY
Location: Charlton School
Contract type: Full time
Contract term: Permanent
Charlton is a very successful 11-16 comprehensive. We moved into our brand new school in June 2016. We believe in progress through partnership with learning at the heart of all we do. We are a school who have a caring and disciplined environment, combining a degree of formality with good relationships between adults and students.
Wellington is a quaint market town, rapidly improving facilities and new housing being built nearby the school. From its central position, Wellington is easily reached by rail and has a large train station in the town. It is close to Shrewsbury and the famous Ironbridge, which is an area of local beauty and historical interest and one of the best in Shropshire!
To support us with our future development and our desire to rapidly be classified by Ofsted as a good school again, we will shortly convert to an academy within a select MAT. We believe this will be ideal for us, as we have similar vision and values. We will work in partnership towards a shared vision that places students’ learning, environments and local communities at the centre of our approach.
We are offering an exciting opportunity for a teacher to join our successful Humanities department, supporting the further development of an innovative curriculum for all, with purposeful, contextual learning and high expectations for students forming a major part of our passion for learning.
As a member of our team you will focus on ensuring the progress of every child by developing their skills, knowledge and understanding within an exciting and relevant curriculum.
Our Humanities department has an excellent team spirit where collaboration, cooperation and the sharing of best practice are key, as is hard work within a supportive team. Learning is at the heart of all they do and they aim to provide students with outstanding opportunities.
We are looking for a teacher who is enthusiastic about their subject, someone who can inspire the children in their care to be passionate about Geography and all this can offer them.
The position will start January 2018. Our school is an equal opportunity employer, so we are committed to the safeguarding and protection of children and individuals. This post is subject to a DBS Enhanced Disclosure.
If you have a passion for teaching, we would love to hear from you!
