The University of Liverpool Maths School (ULMaS) seeks to recruit an experienced and well qualified teacher of A-Level Computer Science to help us to deliver an outstanding curriculum to talented and highly motivated sixth form students on the campus of the University of Liverpool.  The ability to offer expertise in mathematics, physics, careers or PHSCE would be an advantage.

ULMaS is the first specialist 16-19 Mathematics School in the north of England, following the examples of the highly successful Exeter Maths School and King’s College, London Maths School.

ULMaS has been established to enable children with a strong interest and high potential in the mathematical sciences to achieve global impact through careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  Our students are being equipped to become tomorrow’s industrial and academic researchers, leaders who will address the world’s greatest challenges, and teachers who will inspire the next generation.

Our curriculum is not limited to the A-Level courses we deliver.  Students are given a broad education involving high quality experiences of the arts and humanities as well as an extra curricular programme designed to promote curiosity and develop students’ interests.  We seek teachers with a strong personal interest in their subjects and broad-ranging academic interests who enjoy challenging talented students with interesting problems and new ways of thinking.

  • enjoys supporting students with innovative projects and learning beyond the bounds of the specification
  • can bring computer science to life and connect it to the other subjects we teach
  • enjoys supporting and inspiring talented young people on the verge of adulthood
  • enjoys supporting students preparing for challenging university admissions tests

  • wants to ensure that there is equality of opportunity in the mathematical sciences
  • wants to work with similarly minded, highly motivated colleagues in a close-knit team finding imaginative ways to deliver an excellent education to our own students and those engaged with our outreach.

In return we can offer:

  • The challenge of working with exceptionally able students who have passed our selection process and achieved grade 8 or 9 in GCSE Mathematics and GCSE Physics
  • Excellent access to CPD opportunities and national and international collaboration across mathematics schools
  • A warm and welcoming school culture with down to earth leadership and a commitment to social mobility through educational excellence
  • A well funded, well equipped school at the heart of Liverpool, a short walk from the town centre and railway stations
  • A good work-life balance with a manageable timetable and a flexible, family friendly ethos
  • The opportunity to make a difference to children across the region through our outreach programme.
