Job starts September 2017

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and dynamic Teacher of Sociology and PSHCE, from September 2017, to deliver high quality lessons at all Key Stages. You will have a confident understanding of the curriculum and the ability to create new and exciting resources that challenge and inspire our students.

Due to high student demand, we introduced GCSE Sociology two years ago. The cohort is expected to achieve 65% A*-C and 14% A*. In 2016, the Philosophy and Society department achieved its best GCSE RS results, with 90% A*-C and the highest proportion of A*s in the school. In the Sixth Form we are introducing Sociology for the first time, and the current Philosophy and Ethics course is well established and increasingly popular. 

Last term, we were rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted and praised for the quality of its teaching and its professional development.  We are also part of the thriving GLF Multi-Academy Trust. We have academic express streams, a strong house system and enrichment activities. We are proud to say that the school is an exciting, innovative place to work.

We serve our local community and attract students from a wide range of backgrounds.  We are conveniently located within easy reach of Sutton and south London, with excellent road networks.  Further benefits include a two-week October half-term. 

For an informal discussion about the post, please call Naomi Albrecht, Assistant Principal on 01737 359103.

Closing date: Noon on Monday 26 June 2017

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

We reserve the right to withdraw this vacancy at any time ahead of the closing date if there is a good level of response. Therefore, we recommend you submit your application as early as possible.

References may be requested upon receipt of your application, so please state if you wish this to be delayed until shortlisting/interview date.
