What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an excellent teacher to join our vibrant and friendly maths department. Our philosophy is to play to the strengths in our team: we have a fully resourced KS3-5 curriculum, but staff are encouraged to teach in the way which works best for them and there is no requirement to use the centrally-planned resources or to teach topics in a particular way.

Experimenting with teaching techniques and ideas is encouraged with a number of members of the department being involved in research. We look forward to welcoming new team members and the ideas they bring to the department.

What the school offers its staff

As a department, we have a strong track record of supporting and developing our teaching staff. Our programme includes:

  • A place on the Developing Outstanding Teaching programme which features four days looking at high-level skills and strategies for the classroom including a focus on how coaching and mentoring can develop other colleagues and lead change in the department.
  • The opportunity to participate in or lead some of the many excellent Maths Hub work groups which the Cambridge Maths Hub offers.
  • The possibility to be supported in undertaking a Masters Degree in Education.
  • For staff interested in supporting new teachers, we can offer access to development opportunities through our teaching school alliance (camteach.org.uk), including those to develop as a ITT or ECT mentor.


Further details about the role

We are seeking to appoint an excellent teacher to lead our team of sixth form maths teachers. Our philosophy is to play to the strengths of our team so, while we have a fully resourced KS3-5 curriculum, staff are encouraged to teach in the way that works best for them and there is no requirement to use the centrally planned resources or to teach topics in a particular way. Comberton Village College is an AMSP Partner school and an AMSP Area Coordinator is based at our college.

This is an exciting time to join our maths department. The Cam Academy Trust are proud to be the base for the Cambridge Maths Hub and as such we enable other schools and colleges to access locally-tailored and high quality support to develop the teaching and learning of mathematics within their own organisations. Many members of the Comberton maths department have gone on to lead work groups for or be seconded to the Maths Hub. As well as the Maths Hub, the department is involved with various NCETM projects and has recently become involved with the Teaching for Mastery project, with two Secondary Mastery Specialists based at the school. We are proud to be a teaching school and many members of the department are involved with initial teacher education and supporting others with their continuing professional development. Experimenting with teaching techniques and ideas is encouraged with various members of the department being involved in research.


Commitment to safeguarding

The Cam Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced DBS check, barred list check and a medical questionnaire.
