What skills and experience we're looking for

At Magna Academy we have a team of dedicated people who are all working together to achieve our mission of preparing our students for success. Our academy is a vibrant and exciting place to work and was rated as Good with Outstanding Personal Development and an Outstanding Sixth Form by OFSTED in April 2023. We are proud that our outcomes and progress are strong across the academy.

Due to the successful move of our existing Academic Director of Maths to the role of Assistant Principal with whole Academy responsibility for assessment we are looking to recruit an exceptional candidate to the role of Academic Director of Maths to join our team at Magna Academy.

This will provide an exciting and challenging opportunity for an ambitious practitioner wishing to further develop their career, lead others, build upon the existing track record of success within our Maths Department and make a real impact on further driving up attainment and progress in Maths education.

We are looking for a highly motivated, outstanding classroom practitioner with a strong presence, who is ambitious for students, their colleagues and the academy. They will be an excellent teacher of Maths, who has a passionate belief in the ability for all to succeed. They will be a conscientious and enthusiastic team player who demonstrates excellent leadership.

The successful candidate will be able to offer engagement, stretch, support and challenge to all students. They will be able to accurately assess the progress and achievement of students, groups and cohorts and provide appropriate provision to ensure progress of all is maximised.

Ultimately, we are looking for a committed leader with an uncompromising belief that all students deserve an outstanding education. They will uphold our inclusive ethos and provide opportunities for all students to progress well.
