Teacher of Maths
Location: Shoreham Academy, West Sussex
Start Date: From September 2020 (applications for an April start would also be welcomed)
Shoreham Academy is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.
Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.
As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
We are seeking to appoint a passionate and motivated teacher to join our highly successful maths department. GCSE results have steadily risen over the past 5 years with students achieving their best ever results in 2019 with 78% 4+ and 59% 5+. We have a large uptake of students continuing to study Maths at A Level, so there are potential opportunities in teaching KS5 if candidates have the relevant experience.
Shoreham is an Outstanding school located in the heart of the communities in Shoreham and Southwick. Our mission is that we develop “the best in everyone” in both our staff and students and we offer outstanding professional development and career progression. There are excellent transportation links and the school is easily assessable from the South East area.
