Part time Teacher of Mathematics (0.5–0.8fte)
This is a fantastic opportunity to make a difference in one of the school’s most successful departments. The role could start in November 2021 or January 2022 and would be part time, up to 0.8fte, depending upon the knowledge and skills of the candidate.
We have almost 800 students on roll; boys only 11-16, and co-educational in the Sixth Form. The school has long been synonymous with excellence and the school’s reputation for providing a first-rate all-round education for local students has been strengthened even further over recent years. Our academic results speak for themselves while our achievements in Sport, Music and other activities are outstanding. We have been recognised as a Good school with Outstanding features by Ofsted and were delighted with this outcome, which recognised the strengths of the school and supported our own perceived areas for improvement. The Maths department is perceived as a real strength and asset in the school, with a large uptake in the Sixth Form.
We have been recognised as one of the top schools in the country based on our performance in the last few academic years, and students have regularly accepted offers for Oxbridge and the top Universities. The friendly, cheerful atmosphere of the school helps our students enjoy learning and, as they grow into young men and women, we enable them to take increasing responsibility for themselves and for others around them.
