What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking an imaginative and qualified specialist able to demonstrate expertise at all age levels to join a friendly and successful department on a permanent basis from September 2023.

We require a Teacher of Mathematics. The ideal candidate would be part time (0.7 to 0.8 of a normal timetable) and able to teach Further Mathematics at A level. However, we would welcome applications from teachers seeking full time work, as well as NQT’s and those seeking to progress to teaching Further Mathematics at A level in the future. It is a necessity for any teacher applying to be able to teach A level Mathematics.

What the school offers its staff

As a selective school we have an appreciable number of very able students including several Oxbridge applicants. The ideal candidate would be an energetic and enthusiastic mathematician who is able to inspire and motivate all our students. A commitment to the development and effective deployment of ICT in Mathematics is expected, as well as a dedication to continuing to develop professional skills.

Teaching at Southend High School for Boys is an immensely fulfilling experience where students are readily engaged via creative and challenging lessons. This post will suit a teacher keen to play a full part in the life of the school.

The most recent Ofsted inspection (2015), which deemed the school to be outstanding in all categories, commented most favourably on staff-student relationships, and on the positive attitudes of the boys.

The ability to stretch and motivate our students, work with other staff and be a good team member is very important.

The successful candidate will be eligible for the following benefits upon commencement of employment:

  • Auto-enrolment into a contributory pension scheme (TPS for teachers and LGPS for support staff)
  • Free on-site parking
  • Access to excellent catering facilities when the kitchen is operational
  • CPD through internal and external providers
  • Access to Occupational Health
  • Annual eye care vouchers
  • Free use of the sports facilities
