About The Leigh UTC

At The Leigh UTC, we have implemented Maths Mastery with our Key Stage 3 cohort. This is alongside the IB MYP programme to produce a rich Maths curriculum that is based in developing high levels of communication, problem solving, pattern finding and knowledge retention. We invest heavily so that staff have ongoing access to weekly high-quality professional development and a curriculum focused on developing conceptual understanding.

Our belief that students should continue to study Maths at post-16 is demonstrated by our range of courses offered to our students; A-level Maths, IB Maths, Core Maths and Engineering Maths leads to over 80% of our cohort continuing Maths at this into KS5.

As part of our STEM-based learning approach, problem-solving and employer links are at the heart of learning. With this approach we take pride in being extremely successful in all maths courses that we offer, boasting outstanding results in GCSE maths, Core maths, GCSE Resits, AS maths and Further maths with over 80% achieving A*-B in A-level Maths annually since 2018.

With the recent changes in GCSE and A-level, we have ensured that all our staff are sufficiently prepared, by encouraging them to attend relevant professional development related to mastery and problem solving. Our department is fully equipped with practitioners that are engaging in the most pioneering developments in mathematical teaching, and even leading professional development in Core maths to other centres. Staff have also attended courses led by MEI and FMSP such as Teaching Advanced Maths, Teaching Further Maths, Teaching Statistics and GCSE Problem solving.

If this sounds like an environment within which you would like to work, apply to join our team from September 2021.
