Teacher of Mathematics

Newport Girls' High SchoolTelford and Wrekin

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the 2020 West Midlands Secondary School of the Year as Teacher of Mathematics from September 2021. NGHS will welcome 30 additional girls in September as part of the Selective Schools Expansion Fund. Our talented, collaborative Maths team therefore look forward to welcoming a new member of staff to teach across the full age range including A-level mathematics. The ability to teach Further Maths at A-level would be desirable. Over half of each sixth form cohort choose Maths and between 12-18 girls, on average, take Further Maths each year.

As part of the SSEF, a new classroom block, dining hall and science laboratory is being built. The Maths Faculty will benefit directly from a suite of new classrooms in November 2021.

This post is ideally Full Time, but can be offered Part Time (likely 0.7-0.8 FTE) for the right candidate. The ability to offer a second subject in Year 7 (especially music, science or PE) would be particularly useful until the school expands further over the next few years, but this is by no means essential. The faculty also supports maths teaching in local primary schools as part of its outreach work.

More information can be found in the Application Pack below and any queries can be sent to the Headteacher via headteacher@nghs.org.uk

NGHS is an outstanding, selective girls school. The school is heavily oversubscribed at Year 7 entry and, since 2019, also at A-level with applications coming from girls in other 11-16 and 11-18 schools. Our students are kind, considerate and keen to learn. They and their parents expect high standards of knowledge and teaching and, in turn, offer commitment and collaboration in their learning. NGHS is an exciting and vibrant school in which to work.  Recent teacher appointments have included an NQT and a teacher with 25 years of experience as a Head of Department. We will always appoint the best candidate for the post regardless of salary scale.

Our staff body is truly outstanding. Turnover is low with many colleagues forming firm friendships and lots of lively chatter in the staffroom at lunchtime. The school takes the wellbeing of staff very seriously and the Headteacher has devised a Wellbeing Charter, which can be found in the pack. This includes counselling support and two Wellbeing Officers who support students (and staff) outside of lessons. The school has a flexible approach to matters of childcare and family life wherever possible with colleagues covering for each other at times of crisis.

Our Ofsted report from October 2019 (under the new framework) gives a through evaluation of our work and we were delighted that our hard work and commitment to our students' development resulted in us maintaining our outstanding status. You can download the report  below and discover much more about the school on our website: www.nghs.org.uk

The appointed candidate is expected to offer some extra-curricular activities either through our House system, the subject of Mathematics or as part of wider school life (e.g. music, sport, trips and visits, Duke of Edinburgh etc.)

Covid-secure tours of the school can take place w/c 22 February by prior arrangement. Contact headteacher@nghs.org.uk to arrange this or for an informal discussion about the post via video-call.

We look forward to receiving your application.
