What skills and experience we're looking for

This is a superb opportunity for a talented practitioner who wants to work in a warm and welcoming school which values its staff highly (we encourage applications from ECT’s).

KS3 Maths is based on the White Rose Mastery scheme and at KS4 we follow the Edexcel GCSE scheme of work. Maths is a very popular subject in our high-performing Sixth Form where we offer A Level Maths, Further Maths and Core Maths as well as Financial Studies.

If you love Maths and enjoy sharing your passion with young people, we will help nurture your talent and support your career as you progress.

What the school offers its staff

The school is a member of the Jurassic Math Hub and provides its teachers with continuing professional development opportunities and links with Maths teachers from other schools.

We are looking to build on our success and are interested in teachers who have high expectations of what their students can achieve, and who believe in the power of their subject to make a difference in students’ lives.

We are committed to managing workload and enabling teachers to focus on their core purpose; delivering high-quality learning opportunities for students.

The breadth of subjects within the department means that there are always opportunities for colleagues to pursue areas of interest.

This is a great time to join our school as we consolidate links with the 16 other schools including primary, middle and upper schools which form part of our Multi-Academy Trust  (Initio Learning Trust). We work closely with colleagues across Initio, sharing ideas about assessment, literacy, numeracy and other areas of pedagogy.    

We are an outwardly facing school in a beautiful part of the country on the Jurassic Coast, and have strong links with our local community as a Rights Respecting Gold School.   

We accept applications from all potential candidates including ECT, Main Scale and UPS colleagues.  Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact Emma Taylor, Head of Maths taylore@colfox.dorset.sch.uk or 01308 422291.  Visits to the school are also warmly accepted.
