What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an excellent teacher to join our vibrant and friendly maths department. Our philosophy is to play to the strengths in our team: we have a fully resourced KS3-5 curriculum, but staff are encouraged to teach in the way which works best for them and there is no requirement to use the centrally-planned resources or to teach topics in a particular way.

Experimenting with teaching techniques and ideas is encouraged with a number of members of the department being involved in research. We look forward to welcoming new team members and the ideas they bring to the department.

What the school offers its staff

For suitably experienced candidates, we are able to offer the opportunity to teach lessons at Comberton Sixth Form. This could be teaching a class from our large cohort of A Level Maths or Further Maths pupils. We were early adopters of the Core Maths qualification and now have growing numbers of students taking this option so you could also teach this exciting course.

We have a strong track record of supporting and developing our teaching staff.

Further details about the role

We are a highly successful, community mixed comprehensive school with Teaching School status in a pleasant rural setting only 5 miles from the centre of Cambridge. We currently have around 1800 11-18 pupils on roll including our sixth form centre that opened in September 2011.

Our pupils are well motivated, staff morale is excellent and examination results at KS4 are outstanding. With grades across KS4 and KS5 consistently place us amongst the best secondary schools and colleges in the country. The school has consistently been rated by Ofsted as Outstanding over very many years. In addition to offering GCSE Maths, we also have well established programs offering GCSE Statistics, Level 2 Further Maths, Level 3 Algebra and Level 1 Number and Measure to both stretch and support our KS4 cohorts.

Commitment to safeguarding

The Cam Academy Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Successful candidates will be subject to an enhanced DBS check, barred list check and a medical questionnaire.
