Are you our new Mathematics teacher? The post is full time, permanent and is available from 1 September 2018. The current post holder is leaving us for a Head of Maths job.
We are a successful and heavily oversubscribed 11-18 co-educational, Church of England, comprehensive school of over 1700 students, serving families from the whole of greater Bristol and beyond. We are located at the heart of the city and have a diverse student community with considerable parental support. Our diversity is a strength and something we celebrate. The Redcliffe Sixth Form Centre currently houses more than 600 students taken from our own school and from many other schools across the City.
The School is proud of its academic record, and 84% of grades were at grade C/Level 4 or above (up from 78%) this summer. 87% achieved a Level 4 or above (equivalent to a C) in English and Maths. Sixth Form results are also outstanding with a 99% pass rate and 81% at grade C or above. 32% got A* and A grades (up 5%). Most Sixth Form students continue on to Higher Education, including 9 taking up Oxbridge places this year.
The School was judged in January 2012 and again in April 2015 to be outstanding by Ofsted, and outstanding in our church school (SIAMS) inspection, in each and every category. Ofsted judged Leadership and Management, Behaviour and Safety of Pupils, Quality of Teaching, Achievement of Pupils, and Sixth Form Provision, all as Outstanding.
Mathematics is a friendly department with a well-qualified, committed team of teachers who enjoy working collaboratively. There is a lot of extra-curricular maths, especially in the sixth form. Many students have taken part in the British Mathematical Olympiad and Sixth Form Interschool Maths Competitions. There are currently approximately 180 students studying Maths at A Level. Several students in recent years have gone on to study Mathematics at top universities, including Oxbridge, and there is considerable support and encouragement for these students from the department. We are also proud of the way we help under confident and lower ability mathematicians develop.
What we're looking for
We would welcome a colleague with a passion for maths teaching who loves to see mathematicians of all abilities enjoying their maths, learning actively and making rapid progress. The maths department are a forward looking team who engage in collaborative development and we would welcome a colleague who wants to contribute their ideas. We are seeking to appoint a candidate able to teach Mathematics to all the Key Stages (including A Level) and all abilities.
