What skills and experience we're looking for

To add capacity across the school, we would love to hear from talented mathematics teachers of all levels (ECTs welcome to apply). The aim of the Mathematics department is to develop its students into problem solvers and reasoners, who can argue a point with mathematical evidence to support their case. The department aims for all learners to develop a ‘can do’ attitude as well as a love of learning for mathematics. The department plan inspiring, motivating and ambitious lessons to engage all learners whilst recognising that each learner needs differing levels of support and challenge in order to unlock their unique potential. Students are enlightened to the purpose of their learning through a ‘bigger picture’, real life examples and STEM questioning.

Although this role is primarily for a teacher of mathematics, we are open to applications from teachers of mathematics who are interested in teaching a second subject alongside this core responsibility; teachers of other subjects who would like to change direction and teach mathematics; and teachers who are looking for part-time work in a school where wellbeing and work-life balance are valued.

While this job is not subject to a TLR there are opportunities within school every year for teaching colleagues to take on additional responsibilities and projects with TLRs attached. There is a range of opportunities for personal growth and promotion at Todmorden High School.

Todmorden High School is a small, successful school at the heart of our community. We pride ourselves on our open and friendly approach along with our high expectations of what our students and staff can achieve. We aim not only to foster a thriving climate for learning, but to provide the very best career opportunities for everyone; in an environment where aspirations can be met and opportunities for personal development and growth remain a constant priority.

We are committed to creating a culture where all students and colleagues at all levels, can feel proud of who they are, and of their achievements - all this in an environment where our values can thrive. In keeping with our values, we strive to create a school that celebrates difference. Ambition, Respect, Care and Honesty remain at the forefront of everything we do; we are trusted to do the right thing for each other, our students and our wider community. There are stimulating and rewarding times ahead at Todmorden High School
