What skills and experience we're looking for

This is a very exciting time to join our Mathematics department, who are focused on achieving the best possible outcomes for every child. Underpinning this is the development of a 5-year linear curriculum which supports the growing demands of the revised GCSE specification and uses Mastery as its foundation.

There is an excellent mix of experience and talent within a team of staff who are passionate about their subject, enthusiastic about innovation, collaborative in their working practices and committed to raising standards. At Horizon, a Mathematics teacher must be someone with a fierce love of their subject, who is talented, motivated and can inspire students to achieve their full potential. A particular benefit for staff that are new to the profession is the individually tailored support they will receive within the department from Mathematics colleagues with designated mentoring responsibilities. As part of this dynamic and successful team, you must therefore be committed to achieving the highest standards and possess the creativity to maximise the use of our state-of-the-art resources and facilities.
