Teacher of Geography - MPS
Queen Mary’s Grammar School is an invigorating and rewarding place to work: the pupils are intelligent and committed to study; the staff are friendly and forward looking. It is far more than just a place of work – it is a thriving community, proud of its past and confident of its future. In November 2008, it was recognised as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, our most recent inspection.
We seek an enthusiastic and well-qualified teacher of Geography to join our passionate and hard-working Geography Department. The department boasts an experienced staff and would welcome an NQT or more experienced teacher who can bring fresh ideas and add to the academic specialisms of the staff. The successful candidate will be required to teach KS3 and KS4, with A Level teaching a possibility for the right candidate. The current vacancy has arisen due to the career change of our current Geography and P.E. teacher, therefore this presents the exciting opportunity to combine geography teaching alongside one other subject.
Queen Mary’s Grammar School is a jewel in the heart of the Mercian region and enjoys a national reputation for academic achievement, topping the Walsall league tables not only for raw GCSE results but also for the new Progress 8 measure. The school adds great value to students’ attainment after their selective entry; the Geography department exemplifies this, with 79% of students attaining A or A* at GCSE. The Geography results are impressive by national standards at both GCSE and A Level. Passionate teachers and enthusiastic pupils are the secrets behind this success, and the chosen candidate will be supported in harnessing their love of the subject into great, effective teaching.
Queen Mary’s Grammar School is committed to equal opportunities and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young adults. We expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All postholders are subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check.
