King Solomon Academy is achieving remarkable things. In our first four years of GCSE results we have regularly achieved nationally ground-breaking outcomes, including being the top 1% for pupil progress every year, and in three of the last four years we have been in the top 10 schools in the country.
We are looking for a teacher and leader who is passionate about geography and who can contribute more widely to the life of the school. The Humanities department currently teaches Geography, History and Religious Studies at GCSE, and has achieved exceptional outcomes in all these subjects - in 2017, we were in the top 1% of all schools for progress in our Humanities outcomes at GCSE. At A-level we currently offer Geography, History, Government and Politics, Religious Studies, Economics, and Psychology.
At King Solomon Academy, pupils study humanities in Key Stage 2 and 3, and in Key Stage 4 pupils choose at least one of History or Geography to GCSE. Geography is an important subject at KS2 and 3 where all pupils study it, and a popular choice at GCSE, with 70% of the cohort the subject.
