What skills and experience we're looking for

The Governors are seeking to appoint an inspirational teacher of Mathematics with the skills to teach throughout the school from KS3 and KS4, potentially up to KS5. This is a unique opportunity for a candidate with flair, enthusiasm and excellent classroom skills to make a significant contribution to the small but strong Maths department in this highly motivated school. The position is open to experienced teachers and those who are new to the profession.

For any teachers seeking additional hours this role could be combined with our other advertised vacancies.

What the school offers its staff

Kirkby Stephen Grammar School is a fully comprehensive school which serves a wide catchment area of 400 square miles and provides education for approx. 350 pupils between 11 and 19. There are 49 students in the current Sixth Form. The school has, on average, one pupil per square mile of catchment area and draws many pupils from small villages and isolated farms. Having such attractively small numbers enables us to provide for our students in a personalised way, within the family ethos we enjoy.

In the centre of the Upper Eden Valley, Kirkby Stephen is a thriving market town of some 2,500 inhabitants. It lies amidst some of the most splendid scenery in the North of England. Despite its sparse population and relative isolation, Kirkby Stephen has easy access to the M6 and A1 via the A66. This gives simple, quick and convenient routes to the Lake District and the rest of the country. Kirkby Stephen also lies on the Settle-Carlisle line – one of the most spectacular rail journeys in the world.

Our school occupies a prime site just two minutes walk from the Market Square and is set within extensive grounds and playing fields. The classrooms boast unparalleled views from every window.

In January 2024 our school was graded as ‘good’. The latest inspection reflects the uniqueness of the school, the high-quality teaching and personal care, and the huge range of extra-curricular activities and experiences available to all students.

In August 2011, the school converted to Academy Status – the first converter co-operative Academy in the country.

The school aims to provide a safe environment and to foster co-operation between home, school and the local community; to provide a happy but challenging atmosphere in order to equip pupils to respond to new opportunities in an ever-changing society; to widen cultural horizons and to promote learning of all kinds including high academic standards and personal development for pupils of all abilities.

KSGS has always been the focus for much of what goes on in the community. The school was designated a specialist Sports College from September 2003 and we have been successfully hosting the Eden School Sports Co-ordinator Programme from September 2004. A new Eden Valley Sports Partnership started in September 2011. We are the provider for most facilities that sporting and other groups seek to use.

A School Leadership Team, consisting of the Head, one Deputy Head teacher, and School Business Manager, leads the school through its planning, monitoring, reviewing and day-to-day management.

The SLT is well supported by Subject Leaders and Directors of Key stages.

Our academic results have shown real improvements. KS4 results are consistently high and our A-Level results are also outstanding, with excellent value-added figures from GCSE.
