To join us from August 2022 or 27th June 2022 for an ECT year 1 candidate
Beaumont Leys School is a highly successful 11-16 school consistently rated as Good by Ofsted, most recently in March 2020. We are very proud of the progress our students make, and the destinations that our students go on to; many of our students have challenging backgrounds and low prior attainment on intake and so we are the beacon of hope for their futures. We believe that a high quality education leads not only to transformative exam results for students, but also in great character development. We want students to feel that they belong in our school and develop their sense of self-worth alongside an understanding of the positive impact they can have on those around them.
Together We Achieve Success is our motto and the driving force for our school. Our students thrive because our staff are dedicated to students’ success; to building positive relationships; and to collaborating and working as a team within a supportive environment. We are a school with a heart and soul, and we believe our job is to give our students the best possible chances in life, creating some fantastic lifelong memories along the way.
Our Humanities Faculty is forward looking and innovative with an excellent reputation for maximising individual student potential and is a strength within our school. It consists of ten members of staff led by a Faculty Team Leader who is supported by a Deputy Faculty Team Leader, a Head of Geography and a Head of History.
We are passionate about geography. Our programme of learning teaches our students about the physical and human processes that interact to create distinct places. We achieve this through a range of pedagogical approaches that brings geography to life within our classrooms. In addition, students get the opportunity to learn beyond the classroom through completing fieldwork. Geography is a very popular option at KS4.
We believe in ‘going the extra mile’ to help support students and staff. All staff are expected to teach their GCSE specialist subject as well as Religious Education including at KS4. We believe in the power of our staff.
We work hard to recruit the best and then we support them to be even better. Our internal promotion record is impressive, even our Head Teacher started with us as an NQT. We engage extensively with local ITT providers, including Teach First and Researchers into School, and provide an excellent ECF support programme and a strong and well-evaluated programme of professional learning. Our teachers are always learners and as such role model everything we want for our students. Therefore, if you want a forward thinking, dynamic school to take your career to the next level, we would welcome your application.
