The Mathematics Department at Salesian
We are a strong, passionate team who pride ourselves on working hard to ensure that every student reaches their full potential and truly enjoys their Maths lessons. Our large team is made up of colleagues with a broad range of experience from interns, trainee teachers and NQTs through to those who have taught in the department for over 30 years! The positive energy and enthusiastic approach of our staff makes it a great team of people to work with. You will get a real buzz working here with great people who look after each other like a family.
We are extremely proud of our students’ results and strive to continue to improve year on year. In 2019, our Year 11 students achieved 92% grade 9-4 and 35% grade 9-7 (including 24 grade 9’s) at GCSE, with a Progress 8 score of +0.88. Maths is also an extremely popular subject at our Sixth Form, with over 150 students now studying across Years 12 and 13. Last year, 77% of our A-Level students achieved grades A*-B and several went on to study Mathematics at university.
The department plays a lead role in the Teach South East Maths SCITT hub, the Future Teaching Scholars programme and offers school-to-school support. We therefore have opportunities for colleagues at all stages of their career development from NQTs to those seeking positions of responsibility. With the Sixth Form constantly growing, there are also plenty of opportunities for those who are interested in teaching at Key Stage 5.The school has trained over 30 teachers in the last year alone and have a wealth of experience mentoring and developing teachers. Your career would be in safe hands no matter if you were just starting teaching or have more experience and are looking to take the next step up.Please feel free to contact me for further details, ask any question or simply come to meet us and have a look around.
