What skills and experience we're looking for

Maths is a highly valued and popular subject at the School. Colleagues enjoy working closely with a team of specialist Maths teachers and highly motivated and well behaved students. The department have enjoyed strong academic success over a prolonged period of time. At GCSE in 2019 and in 2022 students achieved progress scores of 0.5. At post 16 in 2022, 87% of A Level Maths grades were A*-B and for Further Maths, this was 90%.

Our students are highly motivated and inquisitive making teaching Maths at King’s a stimulating and rewarding experience. In the Sixth Form, many students choose to study Further Maths A Level, and for Maths A Level we are amongst the largest sixth form department in the school. A considerable number of students progress to undertaking degrees at university underpinned by their studies in A Level Maths. We are currently looking at offering Further Maths as a GCSE to our most able Key Stage 4 students.

Outside of the classroom the team provide a wide range of support and opportunities for students including the UKMT Maths Challenge. The team are reflective in their practice and there is a strong culture of nurture and support for new colleagues. The embedded use of ICT within the curriculum, especially the use of Interactive Whiteboards, has helped students in their learning. The team are always looking to develop their pedagogy, especially in how challenging concepts are modelled and explained and how learners understanding is checked and reviewed.

What the school offers its staff

The King’s (The Cathedral) School is a very special place to work educating children from seven years old through to eighteen. The School has an incredibly strong reputation in the area and is one of a very small number of state Schools that has retained close links to the Cathedral dating all the way back to 1541. The School is heavily oversubscribed, staff retention is very high, and staff will typically choose to send their own children to the school for their education. The School places a real emphasis on students achieving well academically alongside participating in a wide range of sporting, musical and leadership opportunities.

The Mathematics Department is located in its own suite of modern classrooms and a staff workroom. All classrooms are equipped with projectors, interactive whiteboards and computers. We have invested in various software packages available including subscriptions to ‘MyMaths’, GoTeach and MathsBox. At GCSE we follow the 9-1 Edexcel course and we also follow Edexcel at Key Stage 5 for Advanced Level Mathematics and Further Mathematics. A Level Maths is a popular subject in the School with over 150 students studying Mathematics at Key Stage 5.

Further details about the role

Applications are welcomed from either ECTs, who will be well supported by experienced mentors, or from more experienced candidates where there are exceptional opportunities for further professional development and promotion. We offer candidates the opportunity to teach both A level maths and further maths.

Commitment to safeguarding

The King’s (The Cathedral) School fully recognises the responsibility it has under section 175 of the Education Act 2002 (as amended), the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 (as amended) and Education and Training (Welfare of Children) Act, 2021 to have arrangements in place to safeguard and promote the welfare of children.
