We are seeking to appoint an outstanding teacher of Mathematics to join our successful, enthusiastic Faculty.  Our Maths Faculty delivers excellent exam results, with all students making exceptional progress when judged against local and national standards.

They will be a key member of the team and will add to the Faculty’s success by delivering Maths in innovative and creative ways. The school is committed to recruiting the highest quality teachers in order to build on our many successes.

• Option 1: Very flexible working arrangements- we are extremely experienced in working with teachers who wish to work part time and can adapt the timetable in order to suit their individual needs. 

• Option 2:  Relocation Allowance – for example help with initial rent payments, a deposit or removal costs. 

• Option 3:  Recruitment Allowance – either a one-off introduction or over three years. Outstanding teachers, with proven track records, will be eligible for this allowance.

• Option 4:  London weighting – available for teachers currently working in London. We will match your current salary (plus any appropriate pay scale rises you are due) for the first year.

• Option 5: NQT package.  For the right NQT this includes: • a reduced timetable for the first two years (60% in year 1, 90% in year 2). • a well-structured and high quality NQT induction year including timetabled mentor meetings  • half termly NQT team meetings.  • access to the school’s exceptional CPD programme offering CPD opportunities at least three times every week.

Experienced teachers can also look forward to a high quality induction package. We place a very high value on continuous professional development; the successful candidate would have immediate access to our very high quality in house programme as well as the opportunity to be supported though a Masters in education if they chose to pursue one.   This is an exciting time to join our vibrant college with our planned expansion meaning there is an excellent opportunity for career development and progression.
