Are you looking for an opportunity to work in a dynamic and forward thinking school?

We are keen to appoint an outstanding teacher of Psychology and Sociology. This post is an excellent opportunity for you to join a very successful and collaborative department.

This could not be a more exciting time to consider joining Greenshaw High School. The school is a highly over subscribed comprehensive school in Sutton and has won a variety of national awards for its success over the last few years. We never stand still and are always looking for outstanding people and ways to improve and develop the opportunities for our young people.

A Level Psychology is an extremely popular choice at Post 16. There are currently around 120 students following this course, many of whom choose to continue with the subject at degree level. The course follows the AQA A specification. Psychology has an excellent track record for results, both in absolute and value-added terms, and maintains very high levels of student retention.  In the last academic year Psychology was awarded a red ALPs score at both AS and A2 level.

Sociology has around 80 students following the A level, and it has recently been introduced as a GCSE option where it is expected to grow in popularity. Sociology adopts the AQA specification.  Like Psychology, Sociology has a very good record of gaining strong outcomes for students, gaining red ALPs scores in 5 out of the last 6 years at A2.

Both Sociology and Psychology have had considerable exam success, scoring well both in absolute terms and on value-added measures.

Greenshaw has a collegiate, committed and talented teaching and support staff, complemented by an energetic and dynamic leadership team. The vision for the School is to continue to strive for excellence and further raise standards of teaching and learning.

The successful teacher will need to have:

-       a genuine passion for teaching Psychology & Sociology

-       the ability to teach up to A Level in Psychology & Sociology
