A successful, popular and high-achieving school with around 990 pupils, The Hurst Community College combines outstanding facilities with a real commitment to excellence in teaching and learning.
We are looking for a teacher to join our Geography department in a team that is welcoming, good humoured, dedicated and supportive.
Pupils have two 50 minute lessons per week in years 7 to 9 and as an option subject in years 10 and 11, three 50 minute lessons. Geography is a popular subject at key stage 4, with over half the cohort choosing to study the subject. Our GCSE outcomes compare favourably to other similar exam centres with particularly strong outcomes for our high prior attainers.
Our knowledge based curriculum at key stage 3 has recently been rewritten and is engaging, challenging and allows for excellent progress to be made, as well as preparing pupils for the rigour of key stage 4. We ensure pupils have the opportunity to experience fieldwork and we respond to relevant local and national issues in the classroom.
The benefits package includes free on-site parking, an on-site gym and an on-site nursery.This school and Hampshire County Council are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment. All successful candidates will be subject to a Disclosure and Barring Check as well as other relevant pre-employment checks.
