Applications are invited for an inspiring teacher of maths to join our high performing maths department.  We require a committed and passionate teacher to join us.  If you can inspire and motivate students, we would welcome you into our friendly and supportive school. 

At Falmouth School we believe in high expectations and high standards. We set challenging targets for students and we encourage and support them to achieve their targets. Over the past 3 years we have consistently achieved results that place us as one of the top schools in Cornwall and in 2018 The Times listed Falmouth School as the top performing school ion the county. We believe in a culture of excellence whereby we expect the best of everyone, whether students or staff. Considerable professional development time is spent ensuring that our staff employ the most effective methods, drawn from research, to encourage the best learning outcomes possible from our students. 

We expect our students to be ‘Ready to Learn’, by attending school, being equipped and focussed on learning and taking responsibility for their own development. We have a behaviour support structure that allows teachers to deal quickly and efficiently with any low level disruption with minimum interruption to the learning process. We expect students to behave respectfully so that everyone can achieve their potential and misbehaviour has clear sanctions. Our uniform policy encourages students to dress smartly and we enforce our uniform rules to ensure this. We expect students to attend school every day, absence affects progress and so must be avoided whenever possible.

Students leave our post-16 College to attend a variety of universities including those of the Russell group, and also our vocational pathways lead students into apprenticeships and employment. The percentage of our students gaining AAB in facilitating subjects in 2018 was the highest of any non-fee-paying school or college in Cornwall.

We are blessed with a fabulous school site in extensive grounds in beautiful part of Cornwall. Falmouth is regularly identified in the media as one of the best places to live in the UK. We take pride in our site and work hard to develop and maintain the school facilities for the benefit of the whole community. Our most recent venture has been the development of an all-weather pitch and Sports Hub. This impressive development provides a focus for sport for everyone in the area.

Falmouth School is part of Falmouth Multi-Academy Trust, along with the two primary schools, St Francis and King Charles Schools.
