Headteacher of Lord Derby Academy - Victoria Gowan

An opportunity has arisen for an outstanding teacher, holding Qualified Teacher Status, to lead Numeracy at Lord Derby Academy.  You will play a key role in driving the school forward as we continue to rapidly accelerate progress in all key areas of the Academy through our high standards and expectations.   As a Leader in the school, you will be part of a team with very high aspirations. We are unwavering in our ambition for this school community.  

As a teacher of Mathematics you will be part of a friendly and dedicated department. The Mathematics Department embraces new pedagogy and has recently been involved in the Shanghai Teacher exchange developed by the Maths Hub. As a result, we have created a mastery curriculum for KS3.   CPD for the Mathematics Department is tailored to collaboratively develop this practice. The Department is also a strategic partner of the Ashton on Mersey Maths Hub, working with the hub to offer CPD for maths teachers throughout Knowsley and beyond. 

Lord Derby Academy opened on 1st February 2014 and is part of The Dean Trust, which has a number of very high performing schools and a proven track record of sustained improvement. 

The school is oversubscribed in Year 7 for September 2018.   

The Dean Trust’s core values include traditional academic education, excellent discipline and respect, resulting in improved attainment and progress. 

“Believe, Achieve, Succeed” has been embraced by all of the schools in The Dean Trust.  We have proved the power of these words with praise in Ofsted inspections.    

You will deliver Mathematics to pupils across the ability range at both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.   

We can offer you the opportunity to: 

• Join a cohesive and highly ambitious team of staff “The morale, dedication and commitment of staff is contagious”.  (OFSTED 2017) 

• Join the highly successful Dean Trust   “The Trust provides training and support of a high quality through the Teaching School” (OFSTED 2017) 

• Join a school with strong reputation  “Parents told inspectors they are ‘honoured’ to send their children to this school”  (OFSTED 2017) 

• Develop your leadership skills through access to high quality CPD  “The support and training that staff receive are excellent”. (OFSTED 2017) 

• Join a school which sets high standards for both staff and pupils  “The reputation that this is a school that insists on the highest standards of behaviour is   deserved”. (OFSTED 2017)
