We are looking for a mathematics teacher who shares our vision and can inspire our young people to achieve more than they believe is possible.

In the first instance this vacancy is for two terms maternity cover from January to July 2018. However; Penistone Grammar School is currently under consultation for a significant increase in student numbers over the next 5 years. As a result, the school is likely to look to increase its staff numbers in key areas for September 2018, including within the mathematics curriculum area.
Our school is ‘Good’ poised to be ‘Outstanding’. We are a vibrant, oversubscribed 11 to 18 comprehensive school with excellent GCSE results across all subjects; we are recognised as one of the highest performing schools in the region in terms of Key Stage 4 outcomes. Our A level results and destinations are equally impressive, with the school placed in the top 10% for performance (according to ALPS) and over 95% of all students gaining entrance to their university or apprenticeship of choice.
We are committed to professional development for all staff, regardless of role. We have an innovative staff development programme, which truly empowers teachers to take control of their own professional development through a supportive peer-coaching model. For those striving for career development, we run annual middle and senior leadership development programmes. Regardless of what point you are at in your career and whatever your aspirations may be, Penistone Grammar School can support you to achieve them.
