Framwellgate School Durham

Curriculum Leader: Mathematics

Salary – MPS/UPS + TLR 1C

Generous R&R allowance available for experienced candidates

Start Date – 1 September 2020

Opportunities don’t come around like this very often.  We wish to appoint an ambitious and motivated teacher with a high level of subject expertise and the interpersonal skills necessary to lead a large team of staff, develop the curriculum, further improve the quality of teaching, and ensure that our students enjoy maths and achieve highly.  You will be joining a rapidly improving and growing school, a Headteacher who took up post in 2017, and an excellent group of leaders and teachers who are now having a significant impact on the quality of teaching and outcomes.  With a new ethos and uniform in place, excellent behaviour and an aspirational culture, we want to achieve more.  We received a very positive Ofsted inspection in May 2018, where our leadership & management, 6th form, and students’ personal development, behaviour and welfare, were all graded “Good”.  Our A Level progress figures in 2018 were the best in Durham, and we have made significant improvements to our curriculum and teaching, and to reducing teacher workload. 

Framwellgate School Durham is a rapidly growing 11-18 non-selective secondary school and Single Academy Trust.  The school roll will have increased by 25% in two years and by September 2020 we will be oversubscribed with more than 1300 students on roll. 

The successful candidate will possess the subject expertise to teach GCSE and A Level maths and, ideally, A Level further maths. They will believe that every young person deserves the very best education.  A commitment to raising achievement, and a willingness to learn, train and develop as a teacher and leader are all essential.  We can offer you an environment where student behaviour is excellent, prior attainment levels are amongst the highest in the North-East, and our students and staff are a pleasure to work with. With over 20 new teachers appointed over the last two years, we have quickly become a vibrant and exciting school in which to develop your career.  

This job is suitable for those with existing leadership experience in maths as a Curriculum Leader or second in maths, but we will also give serious consideration to those with less experience who can demonstrate the qualities necessary to lead a large team.  Ideally you will be able to visit and meet with the Head Teacher prior to submitting an application. If you would like to arrange a visit please contact Fiona Thompson, Executive Assistant at to make arrangements.
