Job description

This is a key post in a dynamic and strong faculty. We are looking for someone with a genuine and infectious passion for their subject, who will enthuse and engage the students they teach; someone with high expectations for all students whatever their prior attainment.

If you share our growth mindset approach to both learning and life, then we would love to hear from you!
