Do you have the ability to lead, inspire and develop a team of teachers in your specialist subject area?

We seek to appoint an ambitious and skilled Director of Learning for Mathematics in to a key post at Bow that has key focus on driving up standards in this core subject through the development of teaching, learning and assessment in each area.  

The Director of Learning will be an outstanding practitioner themselves and will lead their team through coaching, sharing of good practice, running CPD and modelling high expectations.    

Standards in Mathematics are good and we are proud of the progress rates that we have achieved over the past few years.  We now need to move towards ‘outstanding’ by ensuring that the learning experiences of all students in all year groups all of the time is the very best.  Strong and visionary leadership will inspire the teams to deliver creative and challenging learning experiences, support everyone in improving their own practice and grow leaders of learning for the future. 

 It is expected that the Directors of Learning at Bow will work closely together to ensure that there is a good programme of targeted interventions in all year groups to ensure that all students make at least expected progress.  As a member of staff on the leadership scale, you will also be a part of the extended Senior Leadership Team and will thus be fully involved in shaping the strategic direction of the school as it grows and develops over the next few years.  You will also take a lead role in the delivery of whole school CPD.  

It is an exciting time to join Bow School in Bromley-by-Bow, London, as we undergo a significant £31m project programme of expansion and change. 

The diversity of the school community ensures that Bow is a vibrant and interesting place to work.  The successful candidates will demonstrate consistent high standards of teaching and excellent classroom management skills.
