Phoenix is a multi-cultural 11-19 secondary school, serving 1600 (with a provision for 2008 places in September 2018) students in the north of West Bromwich close to the border with Walsall in the West Midlands. Opened in September 2010, as a result of the merger of two local schools, Phoenix has quickly established itself as one of the highest performing schools in the area.

An Ofsted visit in March 2015 recognised Phoenix as a ‘Good’ school, with a ‘no limits’ culture, driven by the uncompromising belief that all students will be successful as they move onto the next stage of their lives. Phoenix is a school that aspires to turn every child’s dream into reality; believes that there is no limit to what can be achieved and succeeds through passion, commitment and determination. 

We are looking to appoint an innovative and committed teacher to the role of Coordinator of Student Progress in Mathematics. We need an excellent classroom practitioner with a successful track record of accelerating student progress, combined with the ability to disseminate their good practice effectively, inspiring colleagues and students along the way.

We are looking for someone who has the skills to improve student progress across all key stages and groups of students. You will be responsible for developing the strategies used across the department for reducing student underperformance, whilst demonstrating a high standard of teaching.  You will be working closely with the teachers in the team to complement their classroom practice, and with other members of the department leadership team to develop and implement coherent, effective strategies.

Phoenix is one of only a few schools nationally to benefit from the government’s priority schools building programme. In September 2017, the school moved into its brand new £30 million state-of-the art, purpose built building. The new building and its facilities will mean that Phoenix will become one of the most advanced schools not only in Sandwell, but the country.

As a school constantly focussed on improvement, we are seeking a colleague to join our team who has the drive, skills and attributes to ensure we become outstanding within the next two years. 

If you would like to be part of a school that is committed to becoming the very best, share our vision and you have the skills to match, we would like to hear from you.
