The Castle Partnership Trust is seeking new staff interested in joining this outstanding Trust comprising two secondary schools, a growing number of primary schools and a successful and thriving Teaching School which offers a range of opportunities to teachers wanting to pursue a career in leadership or training.  We are looking to appoint a cheerful and supportive Head of Mathematics (TLR1) to lead our team from September 2018. 

There is also the potential, should you wish it, to develop the role into strategic leadership (Leadership Scale) of STEM across the Trust and/or the Teaching School.  

Situated in Taunton and Wellington, the historic county towns of Somerset, The Castle Partnership Trust has been established since 2014 and is well regarded in both towns. The surrounding area boasts a range of stunning landscapes whilst still offering excellent transport links via the M5. Somerset is a lovely place for families and as a member of the staff, you will be assured a place for your children at our schools.  

We are committed to reducing class sizes to reduce workload for our teachers and so we are also currently seeking teachers of Maths to join our warm and supportive teams.  We currently have a Head of Mathematics post available and we are looking for someone who can help our team to develop and lead them into the next phase of their development. Should you wish to pursue a career beyond Head of Department, we are interested in looking at how this role might develop across the Trust and through the Teaching School and are keen to explore this with you if this is what you wish. However, we are equally happy if you just wish to be a really good Head of Mathematics.    

At The Castle Partnership Trust we are fortunate to have students who are motivated and enthusiastic about learning and taking part in the huge range of enrichment on offer. The Castle Partnership Trust is committed to providing strong professional development support for all colleagues who work with us. As a Teaching School and Trust sponsor, there are opportunities to build a fantastic CV working with working across The Castle Partnership Trust and within our Partnership of four secondary schools.
