We are looking for a dynamic, enthusiastic and inspirational Teacher of Maths to join our vibrant and forward thinking Trust. We are interested in talking to both experienced teachers looking for a new challenge as well as newly qualified teachers at the beginning of their career. For the ideal candidate we are able to offer either a recruitment incentive or additional Senior Tutor responsibilities with a potential TLR.
The department boasts state of the art classrooms which are very well resourced, with the successful candidate joining an experienced and friendly team.
North Cambridge Academy (NCA) is part of Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT). The school currently has 415 pupils (11-16). We have secured year on year positive progress in the five years of North Cambridge Academy and have undergone transformational change to the pastoral system and curriculum. Indeed, the outcomes for pupils have been transformed with regard to achievement and progress. NCA had a progress score in 2017 of +0.30 and for 2018 +0.32, with a progress score of +0.14 for maths in 2018. NCA is in the top 20% of schools nationally for progress and the top 4% for progress in schools of our type. Ofsted graded NCA as ‘Good’ following the two previous inspections, the last one being January 2018. You are looking at a small school where staff make a profound difference to children’s life chances.
North Cambridge Academy moved into a brand new state of the art £10 million building 3 years ago, which affords us an excellent working and learning environment. We have established strong maths partnerships with Cambridge University and high profile Cambridge Businesses regarding the STEM subjects and this offers a wide range of opportunities for staff and student involvement; for example business mentoring for further careers in maths and taking part in national competitions.
