Job summary

Mathematics is thriving at Swanmore. It is highly-regarded by pupils and parents alike, and the department is relentless in its ambition to ensure every pupil’s experience of the subject is positive and engaging.

We are seeking to appoint a new leader, to start in September 2021, who sees mathematics as instrumental in driving the whole school forward from ‘good’ to ‘outstanding’. This is not a role for someone who sees the current high performance as a glass ceiling. Rather, the successful post-holder will have to be even more innovative and ambitious in their leadership to deliver success.

We want to see energy, innovation and inspiration from a middle leader who wants to join our team. Everything and anything is possible with meaningful collaboration and a strong shared vision, and this successful team will be looking for a champion of mathematics to lead them to the next level. A strong, professional voice who is also knowledgeable, intuitive and passionate about the subject, and the opportunities it provides for pupils at Swanmore, is essential.

In return for your commitment to this exciting strategic role, we will ensure that we work in partnership with you to meet your career aspirations and professional development goals over the short, medium and long-term.

It has never been a more interesting time to be in education, and at Swanmore we encourage pupils and colleagues alike to turn challenges into opportunities. If you have a positive attitude, enjoy collaboration and understand the importance of a touch of humour, we would love to hear from you.
