As a popular and successful school we are always excited to strengthen our staffing team. This opportunity, starting in January, is the result of the promotion of a colleague.

The post will involve the teaching of Maths to age ranges personalised to the strengths of the individual teacher, this could include Sixth Form teaching.

We are looking to employ a well qualified teacher with a record of delivering high quality lessons with excellent student outcomes, or a recently qualified teacher.

The additional Teaching & Learning Responsibility payment would be for strengthening outcomes and improving teaching in a particular key stage within Maths. This would be considered in relation to candidates’ individual strengths.
