TEACHER OF GEOGRAPHY
We are looking for a dynamic A Level teacher to join a well-established and well-resourced Geography department for September 2024. The department comprises two full-time teachers, following the OCR A Level course (H481) whose units include both physical and human geography topics. Contact time with students is six hours per week, a lesson per day, and support outside of lesson time is regarded as an essential supplement. In the teaching and learning, much emphasis is placed not only on the understanding of geographical concepts but also on the ability of each student to apply these to real-world scenarios and case studies. The department runs a number of field trips and visits to support this process.
Hurtwood House is one of England’s most exciting and successful schools, specialising exclusively in the Sixth Form. We have an impressive academic record, a reputation for preparing students successfully for higher education and are renowned for the quality of our pastoral care. A culture of high expectations, creativity and professionalism permeates the school and we encourage students and staff to work in partnership to achieve the academic and personal outcomes that are important to us.
Hurtwood House has its own generous salary scale and benefits – our staff are welcome to join students in the first class dining facilities for three meals a day and there is a staff wellbeing programme, comprising in-school sessions and membership of the local leisure centre and its facilities, along with membership of our EAP. Many of our teachers become involved in managing boarding house life for accommodation or an additional allowance. We are a member of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.
Closing Date: Friday 24 November 2023
(Interviews will take place in the week beginning Monday 4 December)
