St Gregory's Catholic High School

St Gregory’s Catholic High School is looking to appoint a Teacher of Geography (with the ability to teach KS3 History) on a maternity contract in the first instance, with the potential of becoming a full time permanent employee, due to the continuing expansion of our school which will be complete in September 2022. It is in the school’s strategic growth plan to appoint a full time Geography teacher (with KS3 History) for September 2022.

In the first instance, the position being advertised is a maternity contract and this period is an outstanding opportunity to demonstrate your future potential towards a full time contract, to fill the permanent position when this is required. During the maternity contract, the successful candidate will only be required to teach Geography.

This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious teacher of Geography to join St Gregory’s Catholic High School, an Ofsted ‘Good’ School (January 2020) with an Outstanding Catholic life judgement (Section 48 February 2019).

St. Gregory’s Catholic High School is proud to be one of the highest performing schools in both Warrington and the Liverpool Archdiocese area and as such we are oversubscribed with a waiting list to join our school community.

The successful candidate would be working with an effective, dynamic team of subject specialists who strive to provide the best learning experience for pupils through high expectations, inspirational teaching and personalised support. In Years 7, 8 and 9 pupils follow a Geography curriculum that focuses on developing the skills and content needed to prepare for the demands of GCSE. In Years 10 and 11 pupils study the AQA GCSE exam board specification. The department consists of three full time teachers of Geography and teaching takes place in three Geography classrooms which are well resourced. This is an excellent opportunity for an outstanding and effective practitioner who has the desire to continue to raise standards across the department.

The successful candidate will be passionate about Geography and will be personally driven to ensure that every child achieves and makes good progress through challenge and engagement. Geography is currently the most popular option with 130 students in Year 10 and 104 in Year 11. Content studied at GCSE includes, tectonic and weather hazards, climate change, living world, rivers and coasts, resource management, the changing economic world, urban challenges and a skills examination.

A discussion with the headteacher is welcome and visits to the school are possible by arrangement with the headteacher’s PA, subject to demand and availability.
