Are you up for a challenge? Do you want to lead a  successful team to really make a difference to pupils' lives? 

Bloxwich Academy is looking to appoint an outstanding practitioner of Maths to lead a team of committed practitioners. At heart, the candidate is ambitious to inspire and motivate young children to reach their potential regardless of their background. The role provides opportunities for a successful professional to cultivate and lead a key subject in the school. We are seeking someone who can continue to drive standards and develop a curriculum that helps shape the futures of young adults through the disciplines of Maths. 

Since Matrix Trust took over in April 2015, the Academy has gone through an overwhelming transformation. Behaviour in the Academy is now deemed a strength where pupils are now flourishing within a caring environment, based on positive relationships between staff and pupils. 

'The behaviour of pupils is good. Relationships between pupils and staff are highly positive. Teachers model respectful behaviour through their everyday interactions with pupils.' Ofsted report January 2018 

Following the vast improvements in the quality of teaching and outcomes of children the Academy has more than doubled its role in the last three years. The school is looking to grow staffing capacity in order to meet the increasing demand for school places and looking for a dynamic leader to drive this key area. 

The successful candidate will have access to a range of excellent professional development opportunities within Bloxwich Academy and Matrix Trust. Together we are a community that strives to challenge ourselves, underpinned by research and pedagogy. 

Join the journey to turn Bloxwich Academy from once being one of the lowest achieving schools in the country to one of the highest. If you have the talent, ideas and vision to be part of our future, we would love to hear from you. 

Closing Date: Friday 24th January 2020
