Contract type: Full Time
Salary: TBC
Contract term: Permanent
Suitable for NQTs: No

Caroline Chisholm School was the UK’s first purpose built all-through school which opened in state-of-the-art facilities in 2004. The school is a dynamic, successful and highly over-subscribed academy with over 2000 students on roll, of which 420 pupils are in the primary phase and around 300 students in the Sixth form.

We are seeking a passionate and inspirational Lead Practitioner in Mathematics in our Secondary phase.

Academic attainment across all phases is consistently above national averages and in 2018, 87% of students obtained the expected standards in reading, writing and mathematics at the end of Key Stage 2. In addition, 79% of students obtained grade 4+ in both English and mathematics at GCSE.

The successful candidate will be a highly motivated individual who has outstanding experience and/or potential. Our new lead practitioner posts will operate in the three core subjects and will focus on developing outstanding teaching, learning and assessment. The successful candidate will motivate and inspire students, staff and parents to develop and promote a culture that challenges students to achieve at the highest levels. If you feel that you:

  • Are an exceptional teacher with significant potential or track record of success.
  • Can motivate and inspire team members to improve their teaching and teamwork.
  • Thrive in an environment with high performing, bright and well-behaved students.
  • Are not prepared for you or your team to be second best.
  • Are looking for a fast route to senior leadership and eventual possible headship

The successful candidate will be expected to motivate and inspire students, staff and parents to develop and promote a culture that challenges students to achieve at the highest levels. The post will be instrumental in moving the school back to “Good” and onwards and upwards towards an eventual “Outstanding” judgement. The post will suit a very ambitious leader who is looking to become a senior leader in the next three to five years. Caroline Chisholm School has a clear ambition to become the highest-performing school in the Northamptonshire area, across all phases.

If you feel that our school ethos fits your ambitions, we would very much like to hear from you. This position is available from September 2019, however, an earlier start date or earlier may be possible.

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. This post will be subject to an Enhanced DBS Disclosure. All applications should read the school’s Child Protection and Safeguarding Policy (which is available on our website) and are required to declare any information, as requested, on the online application form.

Visits by prospective candidates prior to submitting an application form are welcomed.
