Tes Schools RecruitmentHammersmith and Fulham

Director of Mathematics.

Tes is currently supporting a friendly and supportive Secondary Academy, based in Hammersmith and Fulham. The school is looking to add a Director of Mathematics to their progressive and supportive Maths Department ideally starting in September 2021.

The role will include directing the delivery of Mathematics at KS3, GCSE and A-level across year groups 7 to 13. You will lead your department to enhance provision and will get the chance to lead on exciting project work throughout the year. Project work may include revising schemes of work and ensuring the curriculum is engaging to all learners alongside projects that support student attainment, well-being and engagement within the wider school. However, as Director you will have full autonomy to ensure your department meets targets and exceeds needs of our learners. You will lead by example, supporting and empowering your department’s teachers, staff and pupils to achieve to the best of their ability.

The Director will also line manage the Mathematics department, supporting the SLT link and Headteacher to ensure the department achieves to its maximum potential.

“Our academy is a superbly resourced, rapidly improving school with a rich history and high ambition. Our school was founded in 1699 and holds a special place in educational history as the first girls’ school in London; we are fortunate to maintain ongoing links with our alumni network. Now a mixed school in 2006, we became the founding school of the network. We are a Church of England non-selective, all-through comprehensive school serving our local community, in an area of significant social disadvantage. We are close to White City underground station, with excellent links to central London, and benefit from rapidly developing professional and academic infrastructure on our doorstep. We are a short walk from Imperial College’s new faculty site and the BBC, both of whom provide opportunities to our students. We are also fortunate to have the new EdCity site, home of our trust's new headquarters, as our neighbour, allowing us to tap into an excellent hub of pedagogical expertise.

At our academy, we believe that everyone deserves to be accepted, included and empowered to live a life that is purposeful and fulfilling. We believe that education is the most powerful lever in overcoming social disadvantage, and so we commit ourselves to ensure that our children receive a holistic education that is exceptional in quality. We deliver a rigorous academic curriculum to ensure that our children are able to access every opportunity, alongside a non-examined curriculum focused on raising aspirations, personal development and our Christian values, ensuring our children are able to live life to its fullest potential. All our children participate in a programme of courageous advocacy for social causes to equip them with the skills and belief that they can be the ones to make the world a better place.”

The school is offering:

• A super supportive and highly visible SLT team and Headteacher;

• on-going CPD with programmes of study such as NPQSL and MA in Educational Leadership

• progression support throughout the school and wider group

• support package for NQT’s/RQT’s including CPD and NQT mentorship;
