Wychwood is a small, academically strong and pastorally outstanding GSA day and boarding school for girls aged 11 – 18.  Situated in the heart of Oxford, the school offers an exceptional education for pupils of all abilities through its small class sizes which allow for extensive attention without intense pressure.

We are now seeking a highly motivated and inspirational mathematics specialist who is looking for a new challenge.  As head of a small department you will be expected to lead on strategies to raise achievement and continue to develop the curriculum, as well as providing an excellent quality of teaching and exemplary support to our pupils.  Mathematics is a popular, essential and core subject within Wychwood which all girls study to 16+.  At Key Stage 4 we currently take the IGCSE.  At A Level we offer both mathematics and further mathematics and the head of mathematics teaches the majority of the further mathematics.  

An ambition to write the school timetable or timetabling experience would be an advantage.  Contributions to extra-curricular activities are expected from all members of staff and most assume a pastoral role within the school in addition to their teaching duties.

Wychwood School is an equal opportunities employer and is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children.  Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service clearance at enhanced level.

The School offers a competitive salary, attractive benefits package and a supportive and friendly working environment.
