This position represents an excellent opportunity for an inspirational teacher of Mathematics to join a dynamic, high achieving department.  We are looking for someone who has the desire and experience to inspire a love of Mathematics and achieve excellent outcomes for students.  You will either be an existing leader aligned to our ambitions and thinking with a desire to make selfless impact in our setting.  Or you may be an experienced mathematics teacher with proven track record in delivering outcomes and have a secure understanding of your subject with the ability and desire to make the first step into subject leadership.

The department has a strong emphasis on joint planning strategies to deliver our curriculum.

We teach the Edexcel specification and it is vital that you are able to confidently teach this style of specification.  You will need to pursue excellence from our students and support them in accessing their full potential across the subject area, regardless of background.  

We are also a very welcoming and supportive department where teamwork is at our core.  

We are a vibrant and inclusive 11-16 comprehensive school with an established reputation as a welcoming and forward-thinking learning community.  Being located on the Warrington/Wigan border gives us a Warrington postcode but we are part of Wigan LA.  

As a Church School our Christian identify shapes everything we do.  We strive to demonstrate to students that each one of them is of infinite worth as a child of God and they are the ‘lights of the world’, who can make a positive difference to the school.   Our admissions policy does not require students to attend Church, rather we pride ourselves on being a mission-led school in the community for our community.   Please explore more about our ethos and values on our website.
