Geography is taught to Y7 pupils, alongside History and Religious Studies, as part Integrated Humanities course, spanning seven periods a fortnight with a single teacher. This Integrated approach has proved very popular with students and has allowed staff increased opportunities for collaboration across the faculty. Y8 Geography is taught on a carousel basis with other Humanities subjects, led by subject specialists and in Y9 move into Humanities sets with 3 lessons a fortnight. GCSE Geography uptake is traditionally very strong with six classes currently across Years 10 and 11, due not least of all to the excellent results and progress that students of the department have consistently achieved in recent years.  The department is well-resourced, the main classrooms being equipped with an interactive whiteboard and variety of physical materials to support teaching to a high standard. In addition, the department is increasingly integrating technology into its teaching both inside and outside of the classroom. The department continue to develop a range of enrichment for students and are always keen to seek out new opportunities.

The post would suit an ambitious, energetic and rigorous teacher, keen to bring their own brand of imagination and excellence to the Geography department in order to continue its strong record of achievement. A commitment to working alongside colleagues in the Discover faculty to continually enhance our provision for our learners is a must, as is the flexibility to undertake some teaching outside of Geography as required. A willingness to develop the extra-curricular provision of the faculty would also be welcomed.
