We are genuinely excited to present to you the opportunity to join an incredibly strong Maths team in our superb academy as a Full Time, Permanent Teacher of Mathematics.

We are looking for a Mathematics teacher with personality, someone who wants to own their classroom and have vibrant and authentic relationships with their students. We want our teachers to be conscientious, passionate about their subject and have a real love for learning. Above all, we want a team player to slot perfectly into a well-established department.

Over recent years, our Academy outcomes have transformed and this has been particularly evident in Maths, where we now boast outstanding results that are amongst the best nationally. For example, in 2019, 78% of students achieved a Grade 4 or higher in Maths, with 62% achieving a Grade 5 or higher. In addition, the Mathematics Element of Progress 8 was calculated as +0.42. We are extremely ambitious in recruiting the right candidate to help progress this further.

For the successful candidate, our school will offer a fantastic chance to work with a dedicated and passionate staffing body, both in and out of the Maths department, and be given constant daily support from the senior leadership team. They will also benefit from a shared common curriculum across the Trust, as well as a big focus on ensuring ‘teachers can teach’ – this is paramount in our academy. Our Maths department boasts a strong team ethos, and staff are genuinely proud to have played a part in our journey.

Being part of our Trust will offer you a fantastic opportunity to develop yourself in an ambitious and thriving team. You will have a strong influence on student outcomes across our family of schools where we actively encourage collaboration and the sharing of good practice. We believe that by developing a love of learning and having the highest standards, all children and young people can flourish. You will also be provided with outstanding professional and career development opportunities in an academy where exceptional teaching and learning is the norm.
