About you

We are looking for an experienced, well-qualified specialist graduate teacher with the vision to lead and take responsibility for the work of the Mathematics department.

Values and vision

Les Beaucamps High School’s school motto is “learn, believe, honour, succeed”. At the school, it is believed school should be the foundation of opportunity and success in later life and that all areas of school life should promote a culture of high aspiration, ambition and success. The school has stressed that it recognises that the best intervention a child can ever receive is consistently high quality teaching. It is thought that the school curriculum should be personalised to the needs of students, offering them a rich and broad foundation from which to progress to Post-16 education, Higher Education and the world of work. There is also a commitment at the school to offering a diverse and varied extra-curricular programme to provide pupils with opportunities to learn vital life skills beyond the classroom. Les Beaucamps High School intends for its pastoral care and support to be focused on removing barriers to learning to ensure that, no matter what a child’s background or personal difficulties, all pupils are able and ready to learn. The school is keen to affirm that it has high standards of its students at all times and wishes for them to display mutual respect towards each other. Importance is also placed on there being a strong partnership between students’ parents and the school.
