Job summary

Ark St Alban’s Academy
Head of Key Stage Four Maths

Ark St Alban’s Academy is seeking a passionate and knowledgeable mathematician to join its maths department and to lead maths provision at Key Stage 4.

This is an opportunity to work alongside and to lead a talented maths team.

The progress that pupils make in maths at our school consistently places our GCSE cohorts in the top 10% nationally for pupil progress, including in 2019 where progress in maths at Ark St Alban’s Academy was within the top twenty of all schools in the country. This success at GCSE has led to growing numbers of pupils confidently choosing to pursue maths in our sixth form. This role provides the opportunity to build on this success and to lead a continued rise in attainment in maths as we seek to secure genuinely transformational outcomes for all pupils.

The successful candidate will lead the curriculum design, line-management and coaching of colleagues teaching in the key stage.

Pupils at our school have five maths lessons each week thorough key stage three and four, and this is supplemented by a rigorous and centralised approach to homework. In joining our school, the successful candidate will also be joining the Ark network and collaborating with colleagues in the development and delivery of the trust-wide Maths Mastery curriculum. This research-led, carefully planned and sequenced curriculum has integrated teacher professional development to guide colleagues in securing rapid progress for pupils at every stage of their journey through secondary school mathematics.

About Ark St Alban's Academy

At Ark St Alban’s Academy, we are supporting all of our pupils to climb the mountain to university.

We believe that success in a university preparatory curriculum is the best way to make sure that all of our pupils can make meaningful choices about their future when they leave us. As such, we teach an academically rigorous curriculum and provide pupils with both the pastoral support and the excellent teaching that they need in order to thrive.

As a Church of England School, we believe that climbing the mountain to university is the best way to challenge all of our pupils to fulfil their God-given talents. We also recognise our role in addressing inequality by ensuring that pupils drawn from a low-income community have the opportunity to attain an excellent education. This role will provide you with the opportunity to play a leading role in a department which is going to achieve truly exceptional outcomes for the young people that we serve.

We are seeking a teacher that is ready to play a leading role in our work to provide a transformational education for all of our pupils.
