We are looking for a creative and inspirational Coordinator of Geography who has the skill and experience to inspire imaginative and effective approaches to learning and teaching across the Academy. If you are well qualified, ambitious and have a successful, proven track record in raising achievement we would like to meet you.
It is an excellent opportunity for energetic individuals who will have the opportunity to work within a supportive and dynamic team. The successful candidate will be able to teach geography in KS3 and KS4 and preferably have some experience of KS5 (however this is not essential). Working alongside the Director of Humanities the successful candidate will lead on all aspects of Geography, building on impressive results over the past three years.
Sirius Academy West is the lead school in Blueprint Alliance Teaching School and as such is able to offer outstanding leadership training and career development opportunities.
Due to the current restrictions that we all face we are unable to host our annual Open Night for prospective pupils and their parents/carers. We acknowledge the important decision that you all are set to make in selecting your preference for secondary education in 2021 and are keen for that decision to be an informed one.
Thus, we are hosting a Virtual Open Night on Thursday 8th October 2020 for all pupils that are considering Sirius Academy West as their destination for September 2021. The evening will feature the premiere of our own short film and also provide additional links to other informative videos. These will include introductions to key staff, testimonials from current students, overviews of the varied subjects and courses available at the academy, and an all access tour following a current student during an academy day.
The event will also promote the academy’s thorough transition programme that seeks to remove barriers to movement from Year 6 to Year 7 and allow all pupils to thrive on arrival. Despite the enforced closure in March, many pupils in our local Primary Schools have already started this journey with themed visits to the academy in Year 5.
The academy has been heavily oversubscribed for places within Year 7 in recent years and we expect this to be repeated again this year. We encourage pupils and parents to not miss out!
For any additional information regarding the event, and/or details regarding the transition process, please contact Mr Gordon on (01482) 352939. All of the Year 6 pupils in our local Primary Schools will soon receive individual invites to their evening.
