To stand on the shoulders of giants
The East London Science School is about to enter its fifth year. As our popularity grows, we are keen to recruit exceptional individuals to work with the Principal to develop this unique and exciting school as we look to start A Level courses from September.
This is an exciting opportunity for a highly committed, passionate Mathematics teacher to contribute to our unique knowledge-led curriculum aimed at giving pupils in one of the most deprived areas of the country access to a stimulating and enriching academic education.
Mathematics is central to the success of the school and we are looking for a talented individual who has a belief in the ability of all pupils to succeed at mathematics. The successful candidate would be joining an ambitious and forward thinking team.
We are very keen to put mathematics centre stage within the school having already run competitions and enrichment activities for all our pupils. There is a great opportunity for the successful candidate to develop this area for all of our pupils including working with outside speakers and taking pupils to visits as part of our enrichment curriculum.
We will see our first cohort through GCSE in 2018 with the aim of taking as many of our pupils as possible on the journey towards A-level mathematics. We will insist that any pupil wishing to study science at A-level will need to do A-level mathematics. The successful candidate should be prepared to lead our pupils on this journey.
This post is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and successful teacher with ample opportunity to develop your career as the school grows.
