An exceptional teacher of Geography is required to join our vibrant, progressive and popular department. The successful candidate will be required to teach across Key Stage 3 and 4. A-level teaching is available for a suitably qualified candidate and the ability to teach physical geography at A-level would be a significant advantage. 

This is a full-time post to cover a maternity leave and is expected to be until at least the end of the academic year. 

Geography teachers who love to inspire learners by using the outdoors, real life examples and a range of learning activities are invited to apply for this opportunity to work in our outstanding school.

In 2017, the Geography department achieved outstanding examination results including 19% A* at A-level. At GCSE, well over a third of a grade was added in value to Year 11 outcomes in Geography. The subject is also currently the most popular GCSE subject in Year 9, which is the start of our three-year KS4 programme.

Geography is taught in a suite of three classrooms, all with interactive televisions and a wealth of resources to enhance teaching and learning. The department organises an extremely wide range of extra-curricular activities and fieldwork activities, including to Hilbre Island, the Lake District, Yarm/County Durham and London, as well as further afield in China, Iceland and shortly also in Malawi. 

It is an exciting time to join this forward-thinking, supportive department of four colleagues, led by a dedicated Head of Department, who will offer unfailing support to both experienced colleagues and those new to the profession. We also have an informative and successful mentoring programme for NQTs at WKGS.

If you have any questions about the post, please contact Mr M J Scott, Deputy Headteacher at mscott@wkgs.net

Closing date: Monday 30th October at 2pm.

All staff are subject to an enhanced DBS check.
