You are an inspirational teacher with an infectious enthusiasm for Mathematics. You can also bring the vision, talent and drive to provide dynamic academic leadership to this thriving, ambitious and forward-thinking department.
Now enjoy all the support you need to achieve your professional goals as part of the friendly and welcoming team here at Woldingham School. Close to London yet in an outstandingly beautiful rural setting, Woldingham is a happy and successful Catholic boarding and day school for girls aged 11 to 18.
Woldingham is a truly unique school with an equally unique culture and philosophy. Building on a proud heritage that stretches back 175 years, we’re now driving an exciting future that’s underpinned by fresh ideas, an innovative spirit and state-of-the-art facilities – all alive with the creative energy of over 500 young minds. Our goal is to develop confident and compassionate young women who are curious, ambitious and ready to take on the challenges of today’s world.
Our girls’ achievements in this subject speak for themselves. Every year a number of them go on to degree courses in Mathematics or related subjects and we have a good record of Oxbridge success. This well-funded department boasts outstanding resources too, with access to our extensive computer facilities and a dedicated suite of classrooms, all of which have interactive whiteboards.
While management experience would be welcomed, it’s not essential if you combine an excellent track record of teaching with first-rate communication and decision making skills. The ability to teach at all levels including Further Mathematics A Level and Oxbridge preparation is also essential. Equally importantly, you should be a motivational leader who can develop an atmosphere of intellectual enthusiasm as you foster the open and relaxed sharing of ideas and good practice within your department.
