  • NOR: 1250 | 325 in 6th Form
  • MPS/UPS + TLR 2a (£3,214)

Our Catholic school is highly regarded and heavily oversubscribed. This is owed to our strong community ethos and outstanding examination results which place us 28th nationally for progress - well above national averages. We are looking to expand our leadership capacity in the Maths department and appoint someone who is able to motivate and enthuse young people, raising their expectations and accelerating their progress. The successful candidate will join a highly successful department which has consistently achieved strong results over the years, securing high attainment and Progress 8 scores. They will work closely with our Curriculum Leader for Maths and other members of the team to offer high quality provision to all of our students. For this role, we are particularly interested in hearing from people with experience of teaching A level Mathematics.

We require:

  • An enthusiastic colleague who is passionate and committed to teaching for mastery in Maths and who can inspire students with a love of Maths regardless of their starting points.
  • Someone with leadership experience within a specific curriculum area and/or someone able to teach across all the key stages.
  • Someone who is able to support the strategic direction of the Maths department and deputise for the Curriculum Leader for Maths where necessary.
  • Someone who can support the Curriculum Leader in ensuring high quality teaching and learning for mastery is sustained in the department.
  • Someone who is collegiate and supportive in their approach and committed to collaborative practice.

We will offer:

  • An outstanding opportunity to be part of a new phase in the development of our Maths Department.
  • A friendly, vibrant, caring school that offers a genuinely meaningful “buddy programme” to support your transition.
  • A strong commitment to CPD and a very supportive induction programme.
  • An enterprising and ‘can do’ ethos where initiative and innovation are warmly embraced.
  • A school of opportunity where staff are supported and ambitions nurtured.
  • A ‘wellbeing day’ for all staff after one year of service.
