Teacher of Mathematics

We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic, dynamic and inspirational Teacher of Mathematics to join our outstanding academy.

As part of The GORSE Academies Trust, The Farnley Academy underwent a remarkable transformation over three years to become one of the most improved schools in England.

In 2015, The Farnley Academy became a Teaching School. Working in alliance with a range of partners, we actively seek opportunities to raise standards in education through research and development, initial teacher training, school-to-school support and continuing professional development. The GORSE Farnley Teaching Schools Alliance has quickly established a reputation for profoundly improving student outcomes in other schools, particularly in English, Mathematics and Science.

In 2016 the Academy was awarded the prestigious World Class Schools Quality Mark, becoming one of only 50 schools across England to have secured this status. Awarded only to schools whose students are able to demonstrate they have world class attributes and qualities, we are hugely proud of this achievement and what it says about our young people, their aspirations, creatively, sense of community and pride in their academy.

Our mission is simple – to create an environment which is free from cynicism and unwilling to put limits on what young people can achieve. If you share our vision, this is the opportunity you have been waiting for. Applications are welcome from experienced teachers seeking a new challenge and from colleagues hoping to secure their first post.

An Application Pack (including Job Description and Person Specification) is available to download from The GORSE Academies Trust website (www.tgat.org.uk/jobs), by email to recruitment@farnley.leeds.sch.uk or by telephone on 0113 2630741.
