Swanlea School is a large, vibrant and thriving secondary school in the centre of London.

In the summer of 2017, we achieved our best results at GCSE (Progress 8 score of +0.41).   

In July 2013, OFSTED graded Swanlea as outstanding in all categories for the second time. In July 2015, we were awarded Teaching School status as part of our journey to achieving excellence and we continue to strive to deliver outstanding outcomes across all key stages and subject areas. As such, we are now seeking to appoint an exceptional practitioner in Maths who can join our teaching and learning team. This person will continue to drive forward our key priorities including our innovative work on feedback.   

The Maths Faculty is one of the highest performing curriculum areas in the school (achieving an overall GCSE P8 score of +0.65).  Building upon the success of previous years we are now aiming to achieve a GCSE P8 score of +1 and an ALPS score of 1 by 2020 and the lead practitioner will play a pivotal role in our journey to achieving excellence.   

As expected, we are looking for the best. A good honours degree and qualified teacher status are essential. Naturally, the successful candidate will be an outstanding teacher of GCSE and A Level Maths. You will be able to demonstrate unwavering commitment to raising student progress and standards. Like us, you believe that social disadvantage is no barrier to achievement and that every student can share in the joy of education.  Most importantly, you will possess integrity, good humour and moral purpose.
