Head of Mathematics job summary

Thank you for your interest in the position of Head of Mathematics at St Peter’s RC High School & Sixth Form Centre.

The Mathematics Department at St Peter’s High School consists of a team of 14 Maths specialists, including a departmental HLTA and part-time TA. We are a cohesive, supportive and committed team. We value the input of all team members, no matter how many years of experience. To enhance existing strengths, we encourage professional development, through courses, the Maths Hub, teaching a different KS or mentoring ITT students or ECT colleagues.

Students are taught in sets from Year 7. At A Level, we offer both Maths and Further Maths (AQA), running 2 Maths and one Further Maths group. We also offer the AQA Level 3 Mathematical Studies certificate.

Lessons are well planned, and delivered using a wide variety of teaching and learning styles, using ICT where appropriate. In years 7-11 our scheme of work is based on the Kangaroo Maths scheme, although adapted for our context. We have been actively involved with the Hub Teacher Research Groups on Mastery for several years now. As a result, we use a Teaching for Mastery approach, and we plan collaboratively and share ideas and resources.
