It is highly over-subscribed with a Sixth Form of over 300 students. We have recently been accredited to the World Class Schools Organisation – endorsing that Finham Park is a place where all our students develop a love of “learning for life”.
The Mathematics department is one of the biggest departments in the school and is highly regarded and successful. The department offers a wide range of courses to the students from Entry Level Mathematics to A Level Further Mathematics with experienced teachers looking to support fellow colleague’s experiences and pedagogy to be able to teach these qualifications. We participate in events such as the UK Maths Challenge and are continuously looking for ways to enrich our students’ curriculum. Our status as Specialist Mathematics and Computing College has enabled us to develop our own practice as well as helping other teachers in the local area. These partnerships have been strengthened with the work that we do with our partner primary schools and within our MAT.
As a training school and experienced department we offer a thorough mentoring programme for NQTs including reduced contact time and a dedicated mentor who will meet with you regularly to offer guidance on marking and planning. In addition, as a lead department in a lead school we are well versed in showcasing outstanding teaching and offering CPD, both within the school and across the MAT. As a department we have been well resourced for a number of years and we are always looking for different ways of using technology such as Chromebooks and Visualisers.
The Governors are seeking to appoint an innovative and highly motivated newly qualified teacher to join a strong and enthusiastic team of teachers who are committed to delivering a high quality, lively, interesting, and mathematically rich curriculum to challenge and inspire all our students.
