Head of Mathematics

+TLR1 (2) (£9472)

From September 2018

We are looking for a new Head of Maths, a key post in our rapidly improving school. At GCSE and A level our students consistently achieve high standards of attainment and good rates of progress. We want to appoint an energetic and committed leader to build on this strong foundation. Maths has an excellent reputation in the school and is very popular at A level, with many progressing to study Mathematics at degree level.

The ideal candidate will be a confident and successful teacher and leader who has a passion for learning, high expectations and the ability to lead and motivate a team of reflective practitioners. You will be committed to the achievement of every student, and to a culture of learning for the staff. 

This is an excellent opportunity for the right person: the team is motivated, innovative and reflective with an ambitious and inclusive ethos. Our students are engaging and positive and this is reflected in achievements at every level. You will be able to shape the future of the subject and we will help you to develop as a leader, preparing you for a more senior post in time.
