An exciting opportunity has arisen to join Tomlinscote School as the Head of Geography.

We are looking to appoint an outstanding, innovative and enthusiastic teacher to lead the Geography department within our highly successful faculty. Candidates will have proven leadership qualities as well as very good communication and management skills.  This post will provide an ideal opportunity to play a prominent role within middle leadership and make a significant contribution to the whole school.

Geography is a popular KS4 choice.  The successful applicant will be expected to have a passion for Geography and the ability and desire to teach across all key stages within this Outstanding School.

Tomlinscote School and Sixth Form College is a highly successful mixed comprehensive school of approximately 1600 students.    We are successful because standards, facilities and learning are excellent. Our GCSE results are consistently high, while students make excellent progress as shown by the very positive Progress 8 outcomes. Our ‘disadvantaged’ students perform well and we are very proud of the breadth of our curriculum offer; all students follow a core curriculum that includes at least one modern language yet maintains options in Humanities, Creative Arts and Technology in addition to a range of subjects including industry led vocational qualifications, including an extensive range in the Sixth Form. The most recent Ofsted inspection judged the school to be ‘Outstanding’; this was also the judgement for Teaching. Inspectors noted that, “Much of the school’s success is due to a focus on improving teaching and monitoring students’ progress regularly”.
