Teacher of Psychology – Maternity Leave Cover
Finham Park School is the Lead School in the recently established Finham Park Multi Academy Trust. Primary and secondary schools in Finham Park MAT will set out to pioneer, innovate and deliver a “World Class” education for all.
Finham Park School was judged as ‘Outstanding’ in all areas by Ofsted in 2015, for the second time. It is a Specialist College in Mathematics & Computing, a National Support School, and Leading Edge School. It is highly over-subscribed with a growing Sixth Form of over 300 students. We have recently been accredited to the World Class Schools Organisation – endorsing that Finham Park is a place where all our students develop a love of “learning for life”.
The Governors are seeking to appoint a Teacher of Psychology who has a passion for teaching and learning. This is an exciting opportunity for a committed and motivated professional with an ambition to become an outstanding Psychology teacher, and for someone who may want to contribute positively to additional Social Science Faculty subjects such as PSHE or Sociology. Psychology is a highly popular choice within our Sixth Form; the position will entail the delivery of Edexcel A Level Psychology (currently five groups in total), and also delivering Edexcel GCSE Psychology in Yr9. Psychology is also part of our Enrichment programme within Yr7.
The successful candidate will join an established team, where our teachers are committed to delivering a high quality, lively and interesting curriculum to challenge and inspire all of our students.
Though the position is initially to cover a maternity leave, it is likely that there will be scope to create a full time, permanent Psychology appointment during academic year 2018/19.
