An exciting opportunity to join an Outstanding school

We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic, dynamic and inspirational Teacher of Geography to join our highly successful and well lead Geography Department.

The Farnley Academy is one of the most improved schools in England. Since 2009 we have transformed outcomes for young people from 32% gaining five or more GCSEs at grades A*-C including English and mathematics to 71% in 2016. This year, the Academys English Curriculum Team were the highest performing across the city of Leeds, with 89% of young people in Year 11 making expected progress.

In December 2013 the excellence of our work was recognised by Ofsted who judged the academy to be Outstanding in all areas. Inspectors noted that the quality of teaching is outstanding. Much is inspirational. As a result, students display a rare thirst for learning and an eagerness to succeed.

The person appointed will be an excellent teacher of geography who is passionate about working with young people of all abilities. They will prepare carefully, deliver with enthusiasm and drive, and assess in detail. In return, they will benefit from an outstanding training and development programme.

Our mission is simple to create an environment which is free from cynicism and unwilling to put limits on what young people can achieve. If you share our vision, this is the opportunity you have been waiting for. Applications are welcome from experienced teachers seeking a new challenge and from colleagues hoping to secure their first post.
