We are a school where being a ‘geek’ is not a bad thing – in fact, it’s cool, for both pupils and staff. Whatever your level of experience in the classroom, it’s your passion for your subject that counts. We prize love of learning above all else. 

Our pupils are exceptionally well behaved: you really will spend your planning time on instilling a love of your subject, not for controlling behaviour. And the development opportunities are unparalleled. For instance, we run a fully-funded Masters programme (delivered on our school site by the University of Worcester) and bespoke training packages, such as our revered Middle Leaders training, so you can advance quickly to the next stage of your career.

Parents love what we do. It’s why we’re so oversubscribed, with 4 times the amount of applications for every place we have. Teachers love working here too, which means pupils love their learning. 

Both Psychology and Sociology are well-established subjects at both GCSE and A level so you will have the option of teaching across the age range.

We need a talented teacher of Psychology/Sociology who has the passion to provide pupils with the best possible experience of these fascinating subjects. Could it be you?

There’s a real buzz about our school which no amount of words can convey, so you might want to visit us before you apply. If so, get in touch.
