What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking for an enthusiastic and innovative aspiring leader of Mathematics. The successful candidate will have a strong academic background and be an excellent classroom practitioner who is capable of inspiring and motivating students and who can confidently teach Mathematics at GCSE and A level. We require an individual who can add strength to our very successful team, with a creative approach to developing the Key Stage 3 curriculum, excellent relationships with colleagues and a collaborative way of working. You would work alongside the Head of Department and other leaders within the Department to move the curriculum forward. An ability to teach Further Mathematics at A level would be an advantage but is not essential. We would be particularly interested in meeting a candidate who is keen to upskill in this area.

All students study Mathematics at GCSE. We currently have over 200 students studying Mathematics or Further Mathematics at A level, in 12 sets. A number of students apply to Oxbridge each year to study Mathematics or related subjects. The Mathematics team comprises 13 specialist teachers, and the Department is housed both in a new purpose-built block, and in the centre of the main building. The Department is outward-facing, with a history of collaboration with other schools, Mathematics Hubs, universities and events such as the Olympiad and Maths Challenge. In addition, staff have run Robotics Clubs, Chess Clubs and other enrichment activities. Post-Covid, we are re-establishing opportunities in collaboration with external agencies and would expect you to encourage all the enrichment experiences that we offer to the students.

What the school offers its staff

We are committed to supporting staff wellbeing in a variety of ways. The good working relationships within the staff body, and between staff and students is why many colleagues have chosen to stay with us for the long term. We are also strong in supporting staff career development and colleagues are successful in securing promotions at all levels. We support colleagues in pursuing NPQs and offer a secondment programme onto the Senior Leadership Team for middle leaders.

Although we achieve excellent results year on year and are heavily over-subscribed, we are not complacent. We know there is always more to do, and we work together to continuously reflect upon our successes and areas for development. We are keen to hear the voices of all our stakeholders.
