We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated Teacher of Maths to lead an already effective department. The successful candidate will be an outstanding teacher who will lead the department by example to achieve its ambitious targets.
The Maths Department is a focal point for Ysgol Aberconwy; a place where students have the opportunity to excel. The department has prepared well for recent changes to the curriculum and achieved results, which place the department in the 2nd quarter (based on FSM benchmarking groups). Our most recent validated results show our ‘best maths’ GCSE pass rate was 57%, with 12% of students achieving A*/A grades.
It is an exciting time to join Ysgol Aberconwy, a mixed 11-to-18 comprehensive school of 800 pupils. Set in its own extensive new campus on the banks of the beautiful River Conwy, the school is situated in the medieval town of Conwy on the North Wales coast adjacent to the Snowdonia National Park. Ysgol Aberconwy’s proximity to the main A55 trunk road provides easy accessibility throughout North Wales, Cheshire and Wirral. The school is exceptionally well resourced with all teachers having access to personal technology, as well as an ICT suite for their curriculum area.
The diversity of the school community ensures that the school is a vibrant and interesting place to work. We offer :
- A well established and comprehensive mentor programme
- A strong personalised programme of professional development and coaching for teachers and support staff
- Strong links with other local schools for partnership working and support
- A strong community spirit
- Staff who are very supportive towards each other.
