Bury Grammar School aims to be a leading academic institution and the school of first choice for pupils, parents and staff in the area. 

We are seeking to appoint, an inspiring, committed and enthusiastic teacher in what is a new role ahead of the launch of our Faculty model in September 2019.  Heads of Faculty play a senior role in Bury Grammar School and will form the Academic Leadership Team who will help guide the School’s strategic vision; the Deputy Head of Faculty will be expected to deputise for the Head of Faculty in all areas.

This is a superb opportunity for an outstanding classroom practitioner who now wishes to develop their leadership skills by supporting the Head of Faculty in the strategic leadership and management of the Faculty to ensure outstanding academic outcomes for all pupils at Bury Grammar School.

The Mathematics Faculty at BGS is extremely successful and consistently achieves excellent A Level and GCSE results.  The School welcomes applications from teachers currently teaching in the state sector or independent sector who are committed to high standards and excellence in terms of pupil outcomes.  It is likely that the Deputy Head of Faculty would be expected to lead the teaching of Mathematics within at least one key stage but precise responsibilities will depend on the successful candidate’s experience and interests and will be confirmed after the appointment is made.
