This is a fantastic opportunity for a newly qualified or thoroughly experienced Maths teacher with a true passion for their subject. We are looking for someone who can excite our girls and show them the relevance of Maths in their every day lives. We require someone who feels comfortable teaching girls from age 7 to 13 and therefore 13+ Common Entrance and Scholarship level.

We offer our staff the freedom to get the most out of their subject, not just for the education of our girls but also for themselves as we believe that enjoyment is infectious. We are looking for a teacher who can bring new ideas to the teaching of this subject and who is prepared to challenge our thinking. We offer excellent CPD opportunities as well as the option to explore working across subjects through our curriculum groups.

This could be a full or part-time role (0.7+). We are committed to finding the perfect fit for our school - with this in mind, for an exceptional candidate the possibility of additional responsibilities and potential accommodation may be discussed.

Hanford is located in some of the most beautiful countryside in Dorset. It is one of a handful of girls only boarding/day prep schools in the UK. It is housed in a striking Jacobean manor, surrounded by bucolic countryside and stunning gardens.

The happy, supportive atmosphere created by Hanford's staff, is in large part responsible for the girls' impressive achievements: demonstrated by the fact that, in the last 3 years, over 26 scholarships have been awarded to our girls.

The pastoral care at Hanford is excellent and the role of the Pastoral Tutor is key. We have also incorporated into our daily teaching the 'Character Curriculum' which sits alongside subject matter and is designed to give the girls the opportunity to develop key skills and attributes that will prepare them for later life.

Hanford is committed to promoting the welfare of children and young people and employees are expected to share this commitment. All members of staff must have an enhanced DBS and prohibition order clearance. They must be aware of and follow the safeguarding, prevent duty, anti-bullying and behaviour and discipline policies of the school, and partake in training on safeguarding, prevent duty and personal welfare. There is regular training in safeguarding provided by the school.
