We seek to appoint a first-rate Teacher of Mathematics to join an exceptionally successful and supportive department, to teach the Department’s curriculum across the full age and ability range. The successful candidate will be a conscientious, dedicated team-player who has excellent subject knowledge and a passion for Mathematics, with the ability to enthuse students.
Mathematics is always one of the most popular subjects at A-level and we currently have five Single Maths groups and two Further Maths groups in each of the Sixth Form years.
The Department aims to promote the enjoyment and appreciation of Mathematics beyond the curriculum; this is at the heart of its philosophy. There are two Maths Clubs, for older and younger students, which sweep across a broad mathematical canvas. We have a large entry every year to all levels of the UKMT Maths Challenges with many gaining gold certificates and progressing to the higher rounds. There is a school team in the London-based Hans Woyda Competition and students regularly attend the Maths in Action lectures. We also have a programme of guest speakers at Forest such as Marcus du Sautoy, Matt Parker, and Kjartan Poskitt of Murderous Maths fame. As part of our partnership with local schools we also host other students in our Additional Maths programme for Year 11.
Results are excellent within the department. Over the last three years, students at Key Stage 4 have averaged 70% A*/A with the 2017 cohort achieving a 39% A* rate. At A-level, our students achieved a 48% A*/A rate in 2017. Three students have secured offers to read Mathematics at Cambridge in the past two years.
So whether you are an experienced teacher looking for a fresh challenge or an NQT looking to make your mark, Forest School offers an exciting future.
