We are looking for a passionate Geography teacher, with a real love for the subject, who is committed to inspiring our young people. Geography is very popular at GCSE and A level and has enjoyed some excellent results in the school. A vacancy has arisen due to the impending maternity leave of our current Head of Department. Applications are invited from candidates with experience and the potential to take on Head of Department responsibilities or those who are newer to the profession and just interested in the role of Teacher of Geography. The successful candidate will need to be capable of teaching A-level geography.
