“Mathematics is a place where you can do things which you can't do in the real world.” - Marcus du Sautoy
In some ways, Barr Beacon is a school which feels quite different to the ‘real world’. For one thing, it’s a place where being a geek is celebrated. And it’s not just our maths teachers who are passionate about their subject – we are that one of those rare school where the pupils enjoy maths as much as we do.
Whatever your level of experience in the classroom, it’s your passion for your subject that counts above all else.
Whether you’re an NQT or you have been teaching maths for decades, to really inspire the next generation of mathematicians you need the right environment. You need an environment where pupils genuinely want to learn. Our pupils are exceptionally well behaved: you really will spend your planning time on instilling a love of maths, not just controlling behaviour.
We have a plethora of professional development opportunities. For instance, if you want to take a Masters degree (delivered on our school site by the University of Worcester) we will fully fund it. Our CPD is nationally-renowned and bespoke training packages mean you can advance quickly to the next stage of your career.
We always run healthy-sized groups of A level maths so every member of the team has the opportunity to teach the full age range if they want to.
We need a talented teacher of maths who has the passion to provide pupils with the best possible experience of this fascinating subject. Could it be you?
Parents love what we do too. It’s why we’re so oversubscribed, with 4 times the amount of applications for every place we have.
We urge you to visit us. There’s a real buzz about the place which no amount of words can convey, so please come to see Barr Beacon School for yourself.
