St James' is an Ofsted-rated "Good" school where we are committed to the flourishing of all our staff and pupils. Our Values and ethos are extremely strong ; in January 2020 we were rated as an Outstanding Catholic school in our Section 48 Diocesan inspection.

We seek to appoint for September 2024, a specialist teacher to lead the Geography department. The school currently offers Geography at KS4 and 5, and Travel & Tourism at KS4. Geography is a popular subject with a strong uptake at GCSE.

Our idea candidate will be:

  • A well-qualified geographer with experience of leadership of an area of the curriculum, perhaps as a 2i/c or similar.
  • An outstanding classroom practitioner with a proven track record of excellent results and a compelling vision for improvement.
  • A team player, able to lead and inspire colleagues and pupils alike.
  • Able to teach to A-level.
  • Aligned with the culture and ethos of our Catholic school.

We can offer you an excellent package including bespoke CPD, childcare vouchers and support from leaders who take seriously the importance of work-life balance. We value your development and will work with you to ensure that your talents are nurtured to the full, welcoming applicants from all faiths and backgrounds.

Our leadership team is committed to the professional and personal development of our teachers, and we actively look for ways to make sure that work-life balance is a reality.

The successful applicant will be joining a highly organised, committed, energetic and well equipped department in a school that has the development of all our members, staff and students alike, at the heart of our mission.

If you are an enthusiastic, creative, well-organised professional who wants to develop your craft in a school where human flourishing is at the heart of what we do, we would love to hear from you. Visits to the school are encouraged - please contact the Headteacher’s PA, Berni Rock, to arrange. brock@st-james.barnet.sch.uk
