We are offering an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and well-qualified Teacher of Mathematics to join a highly successful Mathematics department in our outstanding selective school. Langley Grammar school has an excellent record for student outcomes in mathematics and the subject is very popular subject among our students.
The successful applicant will teach Mathematics in all key stages; a significant number of students study Mathematics in the Sixth Form and a strong academic background and ability to teach Mathematics to A-level is therefore essential. The potential to teach A-Level Further Mathematics will also be an advantage. This is a permanent appointment and we will consider applications for full time or substantial part time (at least 0.8 FTE); applications from both NQTs and more experienced teachers are welcome.
We are a very popular co-educational 11-18 selective school with academy status, located within easy reach of Langley station and the M4. We have approximately 1180 students, over 320 of whom are in the Sixth Form; the school is heavily over-subscribed and draws students from a wide geographical area. Alongside promoting excellent academic outcomes, our school ethos supports students to become confident and well rounded, independent and creative, responsible and caring. Our students are capable, hardworking and a delight to work with. We are a National Teaching School with a record of nationally recognised innovative practice, and an Apple Distinguished School in recognition of our leading-edge use of technology for learning. In recent years major building programmes have included the construction of excellent sports facilities, a distinctive Sixth Form Centre and new classrooms and laboratories. The school was last inspected in 2007, and was graded outstanding in all categories.
Information packs and application forms are available on request from the school, or can be downloaded from the school website at www.lgs.slough.sch.uk.
