Teacher of Law (0.6FTE plus the option to increase this by teaching another subject if desired)
Would you like to join our Humanities department and grow your teaching career in our exceptional new school? Are you a teacher of Law, either looking for part-time work or able to offer another second subject to make a full-time role? Are you looking to teach enthusiastic students in a recently opened school with a growing sixth form and incredible, state-of-the-art facilities? We have a tremendous opportunity for you at Great Western Academy!
The successful applicant will ideally have experience in teaching Law in either a school or post-16 setting. Applications are welcomed from those seeking a full-time role if able to offer another teaching subject, as well as from those seeking a part-time role. Applicants should indicate this clearly when applying.
Great Western Academy opened in brand new, state-of-the-art facilities in North Swindon in September 2018. The Academy is heavily oversubscribed in years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 and our first two cohorts of A-level students celebrated their exceptional results in summer 2021 and 2022, with strong destinations for all, including three Oxbridge students and several prestigious apprenticeship places.
2023 sees the expansion of our sixth form to accommodate the first cohort of year 11 students in the school as they make their way into year 12. We have created a climate in humanities where our students are inquisitive, ambitious learners who have the desire to fully explore the diversity our curriculum has to offer, already achieving excellent outcomes. Demand for Law A Level is strong, with healthy current year 12 and 13 classes and the prospect of two classes in year 12 next year.
Great Western Academy aims to radically improve the life chances of every student who attends. Our brand new building and state-of-the-art facilities help us to achieve this, but it is the fantastic team of staff who turn our vision into reality. If you have the proven ability to inspire students in the classroom and beyond then this provides you with an exciting opportunity to further shape your practice and develop your career.
