Mathematics Teachers
Sutton Grammar School has extremely able and well behaved pupils and a low turnover of staff. Applications are welcomed from dynamic mathematics teachers who have a flair for delivering creative and interesting lessons in this large department.  Large numbers (about 100) take A-level mathematics and about 20-30 take further maths in each year in the sixth form.  

Attainment is very strong across all key stages. The school will have  completed a period of growth by September (all years will be 135 in 5 classes of 27). The sixth form has also been open to girls since 2017.

Sutton Grammar School is a selective school (current roll 924 boys +36 girls) which is graded outstanding by Ofsted. We seek two mathematicians able to support our work . All our teachers have a significant sixth form teaching load. We have a number of very able boys in the school (e.g. Olympiad team hopefuls) and someone with an interest in the many competitions we enter would have many students interested in their support. That top end is one part of our role and we also want mathematicians who can empathise with those for whom maths is not their strongest subject. Most of our 135 GCSE students will get level 7 or better (in 2018, 103/123 got 8 or 9, only 5 got level 6).

Applicants should be qualified teachers. We can support newly qualified teachers but also find room for experienced practitioners. We want the best teachers we can get to enthuse our students about studying mathematics and using it in other subjects and to help them value mathematics as a key element of a broad education. 

Other contributions possible

Extra-curricular contributions are also welcomed and you may have other skills to offer (e.g. sport, interest in CCF, D of E, music,.....) but these would be secondary considerations to choosing the very best teacher of mathematics that we can find.

Come and teach at a friendly and successful school! 

We can support newly qualified teachers. Experienced teachers are also welcome to apply. We also have a STEM project in years 10 and 11 that allows keen maths students to work on an original maths project and get Crest accrediation.
