Job overview

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.

The closing date for applications is Monday the 5th of February at 9 am and interviews will be held soon after.

At Court Fields School we are very proud of our school and our students. Together with our staff, Governors and our wider community in Wellington, we are working to provide the very best education for our children, both academically and pastorally. Our students’ achievements include performing at the highest levels in Sport and the Arts, developing wider skills via the National Citizenship Service and Duke of Edinburgh Awards, competing in national challenges in Maths and Science, to name just a few.

Our aim is for every child to achieve, belong and participate and this is at the heart of everything we do at Court Fields School. We believe in the absolute moral responsibility we have for equipping students with the best possible exam results. We know that this opens doors for students and prepares them with outstanding attitudes and a strong moral foundation.

We are ambitious for our students and our school. We have high standards and our students reflect our expectations. Our improvement, particularly over the last eighteen months, has been noted by our students, staff, parents, community and Ofsted. Visitors to our school recognise a significant shift in culture, with a clarity of purpose and focus on high quality teaching, excellent behaviour and wellbeing . We will be relentless in ensuring that this progress continues.

We work closely in collaboration with schools in this partnership to share excellent practice and ensure the best outcomes for the children in our care. We develop young people with outstanding attitudes and integrity, and prepare them well for life in an ever-changing world.

Our aims are simple. We want every child at Court Fields School to achieve their potential, participate in the school and the wider community, and enjoy a strong sense of belonging. Our foundations for this are high quality teaching and learning, a broad and balanced curriculum, and a safe environment.

Our values demonstrate a commitment to developing them as individuals, leaders, team players and advocates for those who need support.
