High Storrs is a high-performing 11-18 secondary school on the South Western outskirts of Sheffield that has benefitted from a £27m refurbishment of our Grade II listed building. Serving a multi-cultural learning community with high expectations and high aspirations, we are an over-subscribed school and part of the Minerva Learning Trust.

We are firmly committed to a holistic approach that combines academic delivery with strong pastoral support. We place a high value on teamwork, providing exceptional development opportunities in a supportive and forward thinking culture. We are currently rated Good with Outstanding Features by OFSTED (November 2013), with a total of 1654 students, 446 of which are in the sixth form. In the 2018 Maths GCSE results, we achieved 67% at grade 5+, 85% grade 4+ and 30% achieved grades 7-9. 

We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, committed and reflective full-time teacher of Maths from September 2019. You will join an outstanding Maths team in this vibrant curriculum area, work very closely with an excellent department to achieve the best possible outcomes and ensure to give the best learning experience for our students. The successful candidate will be expected to teach KS3 through to GCSE and A Level Maths (essential). The ability to offer core ICT would be an advantage. This post is suitable for an NQT looking to begin their career in a well organised department, or for an established teacher who wishes to extend their experience in this excellent 11-18 specialist school. Applications from those seeking part-time hours will be considered, but this must be clear in the application.
