‘There has been significant improvement in Maths since the last inspection as an example of the impact of effective school improvement activity’ Ofsted 2017

‘The school is an orderly environment and a culture of respect is evident’ Ofsted 2017

The Rawlett School is a successful and popular 11-16 community school and in recent years we have become the school of choice in our local community. We have maintained our ‘good’ judgement by Ofsted in 2017 and in 2016 we celebrated sustained results.  Our P8 score was one of the top in Staffordshire and the highest locally.  We are proud of our broad and balanced GCSE based curriculum.

Our students are diverse, exciting and talented – and the same is true of our staff.  We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the high number of good and outstanding teachers who work in our school.  We are also noted for our ‘can do’ attitude.  We are keen, always, to encourage new and/or young staff to make their mark as soon as they are ready.

We are:

  • A ‘Good’ school in every area by Ofsted (June 2013 and April 2017).  Outstanding features were noted.
  • A school with a Positive Progress 8 outcome because our students exceed expectations.
  • A leading school in the Midlands hub of AET schools with a real focus on making sure all our staff develop professionally.
  • A school where British values are at the heart of our curriculum – so that all our students leave school knowing how to conduct themselves in the wider world.

We are looking to appoint into the important role of Subject Leader of Maths. We will support the successful candidate’s professional development by ensuring that they are given opportunities to: 

  • Attend two national maths conferences, each academic year, with 65 other subject leaders in January and July
  • Attend three cluster afternoons every year to observe lessons in other schools and share best practice
  • Have access to the country’s leading Maths mastery curriculum and assessment materials
  • Receive support from the regional Maths leader with at least half-termly support
  • Have access to outstanding training, both regionally and nationally
  • Join a fantastic Maths forum, sharing ideas with schools all over the country
  • develop Maths and numeracy across a network of academies, locally, regionally and nationally (for the right candidate).

We are looking for a candidate with:

  • A proven record of raising and maintaining outcomes.
  • Vision, drive and flare as you join our supportive and forward thinking team of our Core and Middle Leaders.
  • The ability to consult, devise, communicate, implement, monitor and evaluate improvement with a relentless focus on student outcomes.
  • Relevant qualifications and a record of professional development (both formal and through appropriate experience) to meet the challenge of the job specification.
  • A genuine commitment to making a positive contribution to the academy.

Join our team and build a wonderful career in a school you are passionate about with students you love to help learn. To arrange a visit please contact Gail Gough at
