Teacher of Geography
Full-time – from January 2023
Fixed term to August 2024 in the first instance
The Directors of Uffculme Academy Trust are seeking to appoint a Teacher of Geography, to join our Outstanding school from January 2023. This vacancy would be particularly suitable for an ECT or RQT,
although more experienced teachers are also welcome to apply.
Uffculme is a flourishing, popular, high performing School located on the beautiful Devon/Somerset border with easy motorway access to the regional centres of Taunton and Exeter. The February 2014 OfSTED inspection classed the School as ‘Outstanding’. Uffculme is fully comprehensive and committed to inclusion. In 2019 (the last year when league tables were issued) our Progress 8 score was +0.7 with disadvantaged students achieving +0.47, maintaining our track-record as being one of the highest performing non-selective schools in the country. Consequently, we have received many national awards and accolades over recent times in recognition of the quality of the education provided here at Uffculme.
Within this context, Geography is one of the flagship departments with students typically achieving a grade above the national average for their ability. Whilst our examination results speak for themselves, they don’t tell the whole story. They are based on a culture of high expectations; exceptional levels of student participation and active involvement in the life of the school; and great relationships between staff and students. We make no apologies for wanting it all as a school: happy staff, happy students, outstanding results, amazing opportunities, and a culture which rewards and values success in all its forms.
The successful candidate for this post will be, or have the potential to be, an outstanding teacher who inspires a love of Geography in your students and who is able to deliver the exceptional results which we have come to expect from our students. A full contribution to the extensive extra-curricular programme will be expected. In return we can offer you support from an excellent team of colleagues where morale is high, fantastic facilities and young people who genuinely want to learn.
If this sounds like the sort of school you would like to be a part of and you would like to know more, please contact Mr David Harbour, Head of Geography by calling the school directly.
The closing date is 9.30am Monday 3rd October 2022 with interviews likely to take place week commencing 10th October 2022
Uffculme School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.We particularly welcome applications from under represented groups including ethnicity, gender, transgender, age, disability, sexual orientation or religion.
