This post is initially for one year with the potential of being permanent.
The Academy (11-16 Academy, NOR 1456) is looking to appoint an enthusiastic teacher of geography to deliver high quality lessons from September 2022. If you are an excellent classroom practitioner, who is flexible, dedicated and passionate about delivering exceptional learning experiences, then we want to hear from you.
This is an exciting time to be joining our Academy as we seek additional teachers to meet rapidly increasing student numbers. September saw the completion of a new purpose-built, state of the art, 2 story mathematics accommodation at the Waterleat Road campus to house additional students. Two other recent capital projects costing in excess of £4 million pounds have just been completed.
The Geography department is a friendly and innovative team and the successful candidate will have the capacity to be both an outstanding geography teacher and an enthusiastic and dynamic team member. The department enjoys excellent facilities and provides its staff with a supportive, forward-thinking environment with plenty of opportunities for professional development. These range from our extensive ECT programme through to leadership progression opportunities within Paignton and across the Trust.
The successful candidate will be confident teaching geography from Key Stage 3 to GCSE and have a high level of subject expertise. They will work alongside other geography staff to plan, develop and deliver an engaging curriculum that achieves the best possible outcomes for all students.
Paignton Academy forms part of Bay Education Trust, a small Academy Trust comprising of three schools.

It is within easy reach of stunning beaches with golden sands, rolling countryside and Dartmoor. It is also only a short drive away, via the new South Devon link road, from the historic city of Exeter and its surrounding areas.
