Head of Mathematics- Full-time and permanent
Required for September 2020 (or sooner)
We are looking to recruit a highly effective teacher and inspirational team leader to head up the Norton Hill Mathematics team to sustain and further improve on the excellent outcomes that Norton Hill students achieve in Mathematics. Since the introduction of the new specification 84% of Year 11 students at Norton Hill have achieved a standard pass and 60% have achieved a strong pass in GCSE Mathematics. In 2019 in A-Level Mathematics 70% of students achieved A*-B passes and in Core Maths 80% of students achieved A or B passes.
Norton Hill is part of the Midsomer Norton Schools Partnership (MNSP), a growing Multi Academy Trust currently including six secondary schools. The Head of Mathematics at Norton Hill will work closely with the Director of Mathematics for the MNSP to ensure that outcomes for students of all abilities and backgrounds remain very high. Within the Trust, Norton Hill has always led on secondary Maths strategy and has a reputation for initiative and cutting-edge innovation in teaching and learning, monitoring and assessment and intervention. With the assistance of the Director of Mathematics, the Head of Mathematics would be expected to enhance and refine existing systems and support the Maths team to implement these effectively with all their classes. The Head of Mathematics at Norton Hill will also be part of the MNSP Mathematics Leadership Team and will have regular opportunities to work with the other Maths leaders in the trust to steer policy and have a wider impact.
This post would suit a candidate with an exceptional track record of success with their own exam classes seeking their first subject leadership role or an experienced leader looking for a new challenge. Experience with driving improvement beyond their own classes and inspiring students and colleagues to perform at their very best is essential.
Norton Hill is a highly successful school serving Midsomer Norton, Radstock and the surrounding rural area where there is an abundance of attractive and affordable housing. The schools are on the edge of the Mendips but close to both Bath and Bristol.
