Head of Geography

Closing Date: 22 November 2023 Telephone: 01778 556271
Email: recruitment@rugbyschool.net
Salary: Competitive
Employment Term: Full TimePermanent

Geography is a cornerstone of a strong education and, at Bilton Grange, we seek to build confidence in the subject while also making it fun and relevant to today’s world. We now seek an enthusiastic and talented individual to join our happy team and lead the department.

The ideal candidate will be a passionate, dynamic and inspirational teacher who is willing to be broad-minded and innovative with the curriculum while also steadfast in maintaining high standards. This post offers an excellent opportunity for an ambitious teacher to further their career and develop in a forward-thinking environment.

The role will begin in September 2024.

Bilton Grange is a happy, flourishing and successful Prep School set in 90 acres of beautiful grounds just south of Rugby. In 2020 it merged with Rugby School and is now part of the Rugby Schools Group. Pupil numbers have never been higher. There are currently over 380 boys and girls in the school, boarding and day, aged between 3 and 13 and the school’s distinguished history is continuing to evolve. In August 2022 we opened Little Grange Nursery, placing a further 80 children under our watchful care and guidance. The current Head has been in post since September 2021 and in March 2022 we were successful in our ISI Compliance Inspection.

Whilst previous experience of boarding schools is not a pre-requisite, applicants should be aware of the busy term-time existence that working here involves and be open-minded as to how such a learning community is at its most effective by everyone contributing wholeheartedly to supervision, activities outside the classroom and school trips. The school is committed to providing a first-class working environment for its staff; it has recently introduced a new Professional Development Review system and launched a new EDI Committee in September. The School benefits from outstanding operational and administrative support, has a very collegiate common room and a healthy collaboration with colleagues at Rugby School.
