  • Coordinate a tailored programme of professional development, drawing on programmes provided by external organisations.
  • Manage a programme for students studying A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics to ensure they have access to high-quality tuition support to develop the skills needed to access A/A* grades and perform well in university assessments.
  • Ensure that the mathematics curriculum addresses the needs of all potentially high-attaining students.

The successful candidate will be an inspirational professional with:

  • A track record of good to outstanding teaching.
  • A track record of good attainment and progress in KS3, KS4 and/ or KS5 students
  • An eagerness to learn and develop their leadership skills and behaviours
