*Are you passionate about challenging students to achieve their absolute best?

*Would you like the opportunity to develop your teaching career?

We invite applications for Head of Geography able to teach all age and prior attainment ranges to join a friendly and well-resourced department.

Villiers High School is a vibrant, multicultural school located in the heart of the community of Southall in the London Borough of Ealing. We are committed to high standards of teaching and believe strongly in inclusion in every sense of the word.  We place a high value on staff professional learning and it is at the centre of our work.  The post holder would join a well-informed and ambitious staff and would benefit from extensive training and development opportunities.

Full details of the post can be found in the job description and person specification.

We offer:

*We have a huge suite of professional learning opportunities in school and use our PMR system combined with staff aspirations to construct this. Staff are encouraged and supported financially to become examination markers and to carry out extra qualifications such as the NPQ* suite, Master’s Degrees and Doctorates. All teams belong to their professional subject association in order to continue developing their subject knowledge and pedagogy. Middle and Senior Leaders regularly meet with their counterparts from other schools in the local authority to collaborate and share best practice as part of the Ealing Learning Partnership. *National Professional Qualifications including NPQML, NPQSL and NPQH.

Staff are able to take one wellbeing day per term to spend as they wish on their wellbeing beyond the teachers’ terms and conditions as agreed by the London Borough of Ealing.

On Thursdays staff finish teaching early so they can meet and plan collaboratively with their departments and pastoral teams. Staff professional learning also takes place on this day as do any other after school meetings and events such as parents evenings so that staff only ever have to plan child-care or a late finish one night of the week. Where meetings or events run later in the evening we provide a meal for all staff. For further information on the perks of working at Villiers High School, please click here.

We seek:

*An experienced teacher

*A person with the vision, drive and initiative required to achieve further success

*An enthusiastic, committed and passionate individual, able to motivate and inspire young people and colleagues

*An individual with a ‘can do’ approach willing to make a significant contribution to the life of the school.
