The Role and Department:

Every member of our Geography Department, from the Director of Geography downwards, started their careers at Great Barr School as NQTs. Over the last few years, a number of our Geography teachers who started as NQTs have moved on to promotions in other schools. The message is simple: Great Barr School has an excellent track record of supporting the growth of outstanding Geography teachers and giving them the skills and experience needed to develop their careers.

The team is supportive, creative, enthusiastic, passionate and committed to the success of our children.

The department will deliver Edexcel Geography GCSE and Edexcel Geography A Level.

The Candidate:

We are looking for a candidate who is not afraid of hard work, whose aim it is to become an outstanding classroom practitioner and who can demonstrate their practical commitment to achieving their aim.

Applications welcome from experienced Geography teachers with a track record of teaching consistently good and outstanding lessons and of achieving good Progress 8 scores, or from potential NQTs who are making strong progress in their training.

We have an NQT induction programme which is considered to be an exemplar of good practice. This is an excellent place for an outstanding Geography Teacher to develop their career.

Great Barr Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful applicants.
