The West London Free School aims to provide all pupils, no matter what their background, with a classical liberal education. We have a distinctive school culture built on a passion for bringing rich, demanding and inspiring knowledge to pupils of all abilities. We treasure the subject knowledge of staff, we value their passion for continuing to grow as subject-specialists and we support their subject-specific development. We do not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching across the whole curriculum. Subjects differ in important ways. We do not jump on the latest educational trend, embrace gimmicks or impose generic pedagogies. You will never be asked to develop a ‘growth mindset’ or to use Blooms taxonomy. There is a firm and fair approach to behaviour, systematically supported by senior staff: all pupil detentions are centralised and run by senior staff every day. Teachers are therefore able to prioritise the planning and teaching of subject knowledge. School leaders walk the talk: we all teach, love our subjects, understand workload pressures and are highly visible around school. We offer a range of employment benefits including interest-free season ticket loans.
The successful candidate will join a stable and enthusiastic department, which has enjoyed excellent GCSE results with our cohorts of Year 11s over the past two years. Mathematics take up at A-level is excellent, with over half of the current Year 12s and Year 13s studying Mathematics or Further Mathematics. The successful candidate will play a key role in the delivery of A-Level Mathematics and Further Maths.
The successful candidate will:
· have an outstanding track record of Mathematics teaching and outcomes for pupils
· be passionate about their subject and inspire pupils
· be committed to a rigorous, knowledge-based curriculum
· offer a substantial commitment to extra-curricular activities
The West London Free School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. The successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
