An exciting opportunity has arisen to appoint a dynamic suitably qualified teacher of Geography who has a real passion for the subject and who is capable of teaching across all key stages, with the capability of inspiring, challenging and stimulating students.  The post would equally suit a newly qualified or experienced teacher who has obtained a good degree in Geography or a related discipline.  The ability or willingness to teach A Level Geography is desirable.
