Small enough to care, big enough to make a positive impact

As a 13-18 school in south east Northumberland with good standards of teaching and behaviour and a strong commitment to improvement, we believe passionately that every student should be enabled to succeed in all aspects of school life. Building on our ‘Good’ rating by Ofsted, we continue to strive for further improvements.

This role is for an excellent mathematics practitioner to focus on delivery throughout Years 9-13 and make a positive contribution to results at GCSE and A level Maths. With a strong sense of purpose and drive to improve student attainment and progress, you will join a small but committed team and will be supported to further develop your career and professional practice. The post would be suitable for an NQT or an experienced teacher.

Student behaviour and attitudes to learning are good throughout the school and we need a highly motivated individual who can enable students to exceed their expectations and have high aspirations for their futures.

Although this post is primarily to teach at Astley Community High School, you may also be required to teach at Whytrig Middle School as both schools share an Executive Headteacher and the same site.

Visits to the school are also warmly welcomed and encouraged. Please contact Graham Scott, Head of School on 0191 2371505 to make an appointment.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. It is essential that all staff and volunteers share this commitment. An enhanced criminal records check from the Disclosure and Barring Service is required for all posts.

Interested in applying? A completed application form and criminal records declaration form must be submitted by 12 noon on Friday 21 February 2020 by e-mail to to achsjobs@svlp.org.uk

It is expected that interviews will be held on Tuesday 3 March 2020.
