The Governors are seeking to appoint a leader with vision and dynamism for our Maths Faculty to start in September 2019. The successful candidate will have a clear vision of how the teaching of maths should develop over the next few years and have the passion and expertise to implement a relevant, challenging curriculum that inspires and motivates our students. 

The faculty is housed in 6 classrooms and is taught by five full time well qualified teachers and two part-time.  The Head of Faculty is supported by a Second in Maths who is responsible for the Maths Mastery scheme. Pittville is part of the Balcarras Teaching Partnership in Cheltenham and also plays a key part in the local Maths Hub. We offer Further Maths at GCSE to stretch and challenge our most able mathematicians in their transition to A level. We have close links with local post-16 sixth forms and colleges who are supportive of our curriculum developments.

 The successful candidate will be joining a successful faculty which has high expectations for the students they teach. An ability to work well in a team and demonstrate an innovative and inspirational approach to teaching and learning is essential.  

Pittville School is a good 11-16 school situated in a superb setting in the heart of Cheltenham.  Results are rising year on year and we are particularly proud that visitors to our school always comment on the excellent behaviour and attitude to learning exhibited by our pupils. This is a fantastic opportunity to take ownership of a developing faculty and be part of our school improvement journey.  The school is consistently oversubscribed in Year 7.
