Job summary

This is an exciting time to be joining Barnes Wallis Academy as Head of Faculty, Maths. You would be leading a small and committed team of maths specialists who want every student to succeed. In August 2019, the percentage of students gaining a 4+ in maths rose by 17%. However, there is still more to do and we are determined to build further on that success this year.

As a member of the extended senior leadership team, you will not only lead the department, but will be involved in the running of the Academy as a whole. With a leadership team with a clear focus on delivering a world-class education to improve outcomes and life chances for our students, coupled with the support of being a member of a multi-academy trust, there is no limit to what can be achieved.

We are looking for a leader who has a proven record in their own teaching and improving results. As an Academy with an expanding roll, now catering for 500 students aged 11-16, we are aware this may be your first curriculum leadership post and are able to offer the support and opportunities to ensure it is a success. Equally, you may be an existing middle leader who is looking for more experience of whole school leadership on SLT with a view to progressing your career further.

This is a key role in the Academy’s development and as such attracts a salary up to point 7 of the leadership scale for a suitably experienced candidate.
