King’s College London Mathematics School (KCLMS) is for highly motivated students aged 16-19 with a particular aptitude and enthusiasm for mathematics. The school is seeking to appoint a dynamic and inspirational teacher of mathematics to help to realise the vision and ambitions for the school. Leadership opportunities are also available for candidates a few years into their teaching career who are looking for career development opportunities. The pay scale for teachers is £27,000 - £36,500 (depending on experience) with up to £2,500 available as an additional leadership allowance.
Mathematics lies at the core of everything that takes place at KCLMS: it is the passion that unites teachers and students alike. Our teaching aims to provide students with not only a powerful set of tools but also the ability to use those tools flexibly and creatively, and to help them to internalise an understanding of each idea encountered as well as of the connections between those ideas. Student attainment and progress at A Level is exceptionally high: 93% of A2 grades in Mathematics and Further Mathematics were A or A* grades in August 2017, with value added at +1.2 grades per entry on average across the two subjects.
The successful candidate will have strong academic credentials. They may already have a proven record of outstanding teaching, or they may be new to the profession, in which case they would be supported by the school’s thorough mentoring programme. A vital qualification will be that they share the vision of the school to help young people with a particular aptitude for mathematics find challenge and excitement in a curriculum that fosters intellectual growth and curiosity.
