An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic and inspirational teacher to lead our dynamic Mathematics Department.  The successful candidate will have a commitment to excellence, maintain the highest professional standards and place the child at the centre of everything they do.  You will need to be an excellent classroom practitioner and have a track record of success.

We welcome applications from both current Subject Leaders as well as teachers who are looking to make the step up into middle leadership.

In return, we can offer:

  • A talented and highly motivated team of professionals at all levels.
  • Continuing professional development based on research and improving teaching & learning.
  • A school with a calm and considered environment.
  • A school that students, staff and the community feel proud of.

The role of the Subject Leader will include:

  • Leading and supporting the rest of the team.
  • Building on the work already done to take GCSE results above National Standards.
  • Tracking and analysing data in order to maximise student progress.
  • Monitoring the quality of teaching in Maths through observations, learning walks and book scrutiny, then sharing best practice and planning support.

The post holder will also be responsible for fulfilling the safeguarding requirements of the role and adhering to the school’s Safeguarding Policy.

We are a growing 11 – 16 comprehensive school.  Graded ‘good’ across all standards by Ofsted in our most recent inspection, we pride ourselves in being highly inclusive and student focused.  We were awarded the prestigious National SMSC Quality Mark Gold Award, May 2021. We are very proud of our pupils and their achievements.

As a school, we aspire to provide the very best educational opportunities and outcomes for all of our students.

Our talented staff are unstinting in providing a wealth of opportunities for students.  They give generously of their time and energy both in and out of term time.  Students quickly learn that hard-work and investment in learning provides great pleasure and reaps dividends in the future.

Our vision is to support every student to be a:

Successful Learner, Confident Individual, and Responsible Citizen.
