 Isca Academy

Teacher of Geography

Permanent, Full-Time, starting September 2020

Do you have a relentless drive to achieve outstanding progress and attainment with children regardless of their background and prior learning?

We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated, capable and innovative teacher, with a proven commitment to inclusive and inspiring teaching where each and every child can succeed. You will be an enthusiastic specialist able to teach Geography across KS3 and KS4. The post represents an exciting opportunity to be part of a vibrant and ambitious Academy working within the Ted Wragg Multi-Academy Trust.

Our school is located on a campus with purpose-built accommodation, offering spacious and excellent teaching and learning facilities. We currently have a roll of 920 students, growing to full capacity in 2021. Isca Academy prides itself on providing high quality comprehensive education. Our students have a broad range of abilities and aspirations on entry, from able, gifted and talented to students needing more support with literacy and social skills. Our focus remains on every student in our school exceeding expectations, whatever their starting point. Beyond academic credentials, we firmly believe in the value of a more rounded education which promotes creativity, self-belief and confidence, and as such, offer an exceptional extra-curricular and outdoor education programme.

We are a small but passionate Geography department. At GCSE, our students currently study EDUQAS Geography Syllabus B, which is a popular option for the students and addresses a wide range of physical, human and environmental aspects of the subject. As a department we offer a weekly drop-in session for any KS4 student who would like additional support with classwork, homework or revision. At KS3, a broad range of modules cover map skills, settlement, economic activities, population, development, ecosystems and natural hazards. Skills and themes are built upon each year throughout the five year journey of Geography. Fieldwork is integral and takes place in all year groups in order to develop skills and knowledge outside of the classroom and bring Geography to life. Additionally, we currently offer a biannual Geography/Science fieldwork residential to Mallorca, which has proved very popular.

The Ted Wragg Multi Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All applicants will be subject to a full Disclosure and Barring Service check before appointment is confirmed.
