We are seeking to appoint an exceptional professional to join our Trust Leadership Team as Assistant Director of Mathematics in our secondary phase.
Joining us, you will provide strategic direction, leadership and management of mathematics education across our schools and support our vision for all learners to grow in the mastery of mathematics, whatever their prior attainment.
We aim for our learners to become fluent in their use of mathematics, with the ability to reason mathematically and solve problems in a variety of contexts. We envisage you supporting our colleagues to fully embed the aims of the national curriculum so that all pupils make exceptional progress in mathematics, thus facilitating and unlocking potential in a wide range of other disciplines.
Lionheart Academies Trust was formed by Beauchamp College as an outstanding provider. We are very proud of our students and the progress they make consistently places us in the top 100 state schools nationally. We seek to build on this, further breaking down any barriers to learning and ensuring that each provider in our trust is able to embed excellence in all areas of practice. Ultimately, we believe that any young person from any background deserves an equal chance to be successful in whatever they choose to do. We want to share our love of learning with all young people in our care; we are preparing our students with the knowledge and confidence to thrive in a competitive world.
Beauchamp College is the lead school in the East Midlands South Maths Hub, one of a national network of 35 hubs across England, tasked with improving mathematics teaching and learning from ages 4-18. We do this by offering high-quality CPD and working with teachers and other mathematical professionals across the East Midlands region.
The Trust is currently made up of a family of three primary schools and two secondary schools - Beauchamp College in Oadby and The Cedars Academy in Birstall. By September 2018, there are plans for up to four more secondary schools, from the Leicester and Leicestershire area, to join the Trust, bringing the number of children educated within the LAT to over 8,000. As our trust grows there will be clear opportunities for career progression.
If you want to make the next step in your career, with an employer who will listen to you, challenge and support your decision making and provide a wealth of resource to fulfil this fantastic opportunity, your application will be welcomed.
