St Peter’s is an extremely successful school and Sixth Form set in attractive grounds on the outskirts of Guildford. Standards are high and academic progress excellent, with good facilities and resources. Our school intake increased to seven form entry in September 2017.

We are known for our strong academic and pastoral work. Our multi-faith community is a key aspect of our ethos; relationships between students and staff are excellent. We offer an inclusive induction programme for all new staff including support for teachers who have not worked in a Catholic School before.    

We seek a Head of Maths who will lead our team of highly motivated and dedicated professionals. There are currently eight members in our department, teaching throughout the age and ability ranges. There are excellent opportunities for personal and professional development, particularly for those looking to broaden their experience of A Level teaching. We have an established mentoring and support structure for newly qualified teachers and there are also opportunities to mentor trainee teachers working towards a teaching qualification through a variety of schemes.  

Maths results are significantly above the national average for KS4 and KS5. The Edexcel Maths GCSE course is covered by all students from Year 9 to 11. We also offer the OCR Additional Maths qualification in Year 11 for our able and driven Mathematicians. A Levels in Maths and Further Maths are offered in the Sixth Form and Maths is the most popular course in the Sixth Form with a number of our students choosing to continue with Maths as a significant part of their university education.      

Suitable candidates will be invited to interview shortly after receipt of their applications so an early response is recommended.  

If you would like to visit the school for a tour or have any other queries, please contact Michelle Gallagher, HR Manager.  

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
