This is an opportunity to join our established Maths Department with 14 maths teachers who are committed to driving progress and attainment to improve the life chances of every student.

Our Trust includes five teaching schools, the Yorkshire and Humber Maths Hub (fronted by our Executive Director of Maths) , an English Hub, four School Direct providers, two national support schools and an appropriate body. These organisations work together to form the Outwood Institute of Education and work to support schools to improve outcomes for young people across the North of England. If you want a rewarding career in education with the prospect of advancement, we want to hear from you.
