Oxford High School have an opportunity for a well-qualified and enthusiastic Mathematics Teacher to work in a dynamic and creative school with exceptional academic results and to join a thriving and experienced team.

At Oxford High School, where Maths is the most popular A Level subject, we try to show the girls that it is creative and relevant to their lives. Teaching in ability-based groups, you will utilise a range of teaching strategies and resources, including E-learning, to ensure pupils are able to receive the right level of challenge and support.

As a large department, there is some flexibility as to what you would teach, but the ability to deliver all aspects of the 11-18 syllabus would be an advantage.

At Oxford High School, Mathematics is a popular subject and examination results at GCSE and A Level are excellent. Generally, over half of Year 12 choose to take Mathematics (with either Statistics or Mechanics) or Further Mathematics. Most years we have students applying to study Mathematics at university, and we provide teaching for STEP and entrance papers.

In our most recent 2016 ISI inspection, Oxford High School was rated as exceptional and the contribution of teaching was judged to be excellent. We are now very much looking forward to welcoming an excellent candidate to this key post.

If you have a passion for Mathematics, we would like to hear from you. In return, we offer a salary higher than the maintained sector and a range of benefits including interest-free season ticket and computer loans and reduced BUPA subscription.
