Hampton Court House is ranked number 1 on the Independent Schools Council’s table of ‘small independent schools’ and has been shortlisted for the TES Independent School Awards 2020 ‘senior school of the year’. Over 70% of the grades in mathematics A level were A*-A in 2019.

Hampton Court House is situated opposite Hampton Court Palace, adjacent to Bushy Park. We are a fast-growing school, with pupil numbers increasing each year. The school occupies a three-hectare site within landscaped grounds. There are pupils from pre-school to Year 13.

We seek a charismatic communicator to teach in our small maths department, to inspire our children with the beauty of mathematics, and help all of them to gain satisfaction from appropriate mathematical achievements. The successful candidate will be expected to teach five periods of Further Maths to Year 12 students.

Our Sixth Form teaching is scheduled between 1.30 pm and 7 pm to suit the circadian rhythm of adolescents in their late teens. Class sizes at A level are very small and our students are of a high calibre looking towards Oxbridge and other Russell Group universities. In 2019 nearly all our students went to their first-choice university. The relevant times for the periods will be from 5.25 pm to 7 pm (Tuesday and Thursday) and 1.35 pm to 2.20 pm (Monday). If the Monday period is problematic, then an alternative time could be 5.25 pm to 6.10 pm on Friday. This is a fixed term contract until the end of Summer Term 2020.

We are looking for well-qualified mathematicians, who will be able to inspire enthusiasm in our pupils and help to promote the high cultural and academic ethos of the school. Applications are equally welcome from teachers with some years’ experience and from new entrants to the profession.
