Job description

Rhyddings Business & Enterprise School are seeking an enthusiastic, committed, qualified teacher of Maths to lead the department.

We are looking for an excellent classroom practitioner who is both creative and challenging in their teaching. They will be passionate and committed to ensuring students maximise their potential and achievement. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to teach across our whole 11-16 age range and ability range and shape the future of the subject within the school.

Our curriculum areas are largely suited in a combination of specialist facility and traditional classroom space. We have a 3yr KS3 and 2yr KS4 from offering the EBacc, should pupils choose to do so. We have a 25 period week of 1 hour lessons.

The Department currently has 4 specialist teachers, who are suited together. Recently a Second in Department was appointed. We currently offer the Edexcel GCSE course and have smaller entries for Statistics and Further Maths. The post of Lead Subject Teacher Maths is effectively a Head of Department role with autonomy for the curriculum and strategic development of the subject. The department has increased curriculum time planned from September 2020.

The post would suit an experienced Teacher of Maths looking to further develop a leadership role at departmental level, but also as a core leader, with wider school leadership opportunities. There is a committed team and all LST curriculum leaders regularly work together as a group of middle leaders.

There is a strong emphasis on collaboration beyond school being part of a local maths hub, East Lancashire Teaching Schools Alliance (ELTSA) and PiXL both at local and national level. There is access to regular CPD opportunities.

Leading the maths team at Rhyddings will be a rewarding experience, developing others and the curriculum to enhance the outcomes for our young people.

Rhyddings Business & Enterprise School serves the East Lancashire old mill town of Oswaldtwistle and surrounding area. It has been at the heart of the community for over 85 years and enjoys good transport links via the M65 corridor and adjoining networks of M6 and M66.

The school is in a period of transition, quite literally, with a planned capital building programme. Uniquely, whilst this is taking place the school will be temporarily off-site for the academic year 2019/2020 and into 2021 to allow this work to take place. During this period, we will have sole use of the vacant Hameldon College site, Coal Clough Lane, Burnley – an impressive BSF multi million pound campus with state of the art facilities.

In the meantime, the school continues to work hard to prepare the young people we serve and help them realise and reach their potential, providing them with the very best educational experiences.

Pupils are well supported through our Pastoral House Continent system with vertical tutoring and Continent Leaders. This provides the support pupils need to perform well across the curriculum as well as healthy competition throughout the year.
