We our seeking to appoint a Head of Mathematics.
The Mathematics Department at Westcliff High School for Boys (WHSB) has been a strong Department for many years. It has achieved consistently good results in GCSE and Advanced Level Mathematics, and the introduction of the GCSE in Further Mathematics to the top half of Years 10 and 11 has also produced strong results. The Department has a high uptake of Mathematics at A Level, approximately 65% of Lower Sixth, with about 20% of the same cohort opting to study Further Mathematics.
The Department offers a variety of additional clubs which students can attend, some of these are aimed at helping those in need of additional support, or extending the more able. This includes an effective mentoring scheme, in which Sixth Form students mentor younger pupils. Pupils in Years 8, 11 and the Upper Sixth will also sit the respective Junior, Intermediate and Senior Mathematics Challenges organised by the UKMT, and students often progress to the follow-on rounds at all levels. The Department also offers a range of activities for Enrichment Days, such as the Architecture Workshop (Lower Sixth), Mathematics and Magic (Year 7), Fractal Geometry (Year 10) and Mathematics and Pirates (prospective Year 5 pupils).
