We wish to appoint an excellent Leader of Mathematics to join this ‘outstanding’ department. Applications are welcome from individuals of all faiths or none, who will support the Catholic ethos of our school. This is an exciting opportunity to support the development of students.  

Our repeatedly oversubscribed School achieved 80% 5 A*-C (4+) including Mathematics and English in 2017 and the Sixth Form received an ‘outstanding’ ALP’s judgement in 2016.  In our previous Ofsted Section 5 inspection both ‘Behaviour & Safety’ and our Sixth Form were judged ‘outstanding’. In our most recent monitoring visit (January 2018) Ofsted stated that the ‘…steady and reassuring approach ensures the strong commitment of staff…’ and ‘the teachers are welcoming and friendly, and it creates an atmosphere where you belong…’  Over the last three years, the Sixth Form outcomes have been in the top 15% nationally.  Ofsted (January 2018) stated that ‘there is convincing evidence that pupils in KS3 progress well, GCSE results are consistently above average and students achieve highly at A-level’.

In Mathematics we achieve consistently outstanding KS4 results – in June 2018, Mathematics achieved a P8 score of +0.53 with 80% of students achieving a 4+ and 35% achieving a 7+ at GCSE.  In GCSE Further Maths 37% of students achieved an A*.  Performance at A-level is also outstanding with 62% of students achieving an A or A* in the summer of 2018 – with 23% achieving the A*.  Recent past A-level students have gone on to study Mathematics at University as well as subjects such as Mechanical Engineering, Structural Engineering, Pure Physics & Medicine.

We offer:

• A strong feedback culture and established programme of induction and mentoring.

• A supportive environment in which your enthusiasm will be nurtured and talents valued.

• A commitment to your professional development and leadership training.

• The chance to network with outstanding practitioners as part of the ‘PIXL’ programme.

• Free access to our on-site gymnasium.

• Residential experiences available to Austria, Spain, Belgium, France, South Africa, Ecuador and USA.

Please contact Janet Rigby, Office Manager on to arrange a visit or an informal discussion with the Headteacher, Mr Philip McCullagh.
