We are seeking to appoint, from January 2017, an enthusiastic and visionary leader for our team of dedicated Maths teachers. The successful candidate will benefit from the support of a very capable second in department who can lead on upper school Maths, and a Vice Principal line manager who is a Maths specialist. The AP (Maths) post-holder will need, at least initially, to lead on KS3 Maths and numeracy across the curriculum within the school, and will also work with colleagues from the feeder primary schools to improve the quality of Maths teaching across the cluster. Support with this may include the opportunity to complete the MaST programme, which can count towards an MA in Education, subject to the candidate’s availability.
You will be joining the school at an exciting time as examination results across the whole school at both A level and GCSE have seen rapid improvement and the school is expanding. 70% achieved grade 4+ in both Maths and Englisn in 2017 and our estimated Progress 8 score is +0.38. At A level the proportion achieving AAB or better was 19%.
