Head of Mathematics (with additional Senior Middle Leadership role available)
MPR/UPR + TLR1 (£9,663 - £11,478)
An exciting opportunity to lead a successful team of well-qualified mathematicians at a time of curriculum innovation. Applicants with excellent leadership experience are offered the additional opportunity to become the school's Senior Middle Leader.
• Are you ambitious for yourself and others to excel?
• Do you have the aspiration and resilience to lead a team to achieve more than they thought possible?
• Can you demonstrate a proven record of success at classroom and departmental level?
If the answer to all three of these is 'yes' and you are a skilled teacher of mathematics who is ambitious for every single child who enters your department, then please read on...
An exciting opportunity has arisen to lead the mathematics department at Brimsham Green School. The department has a strong record of success, and is consistently in quintiles 2/3 for the progress of middle and high attainers, and those who are disadvantaged; attainment is consistently above national averages. There is no gender gap in achievement.
Uptake at A Level is very strong, an indicator of the engagement in learning instilled in students throughout KS3 and KS4.
You would be joining a team of seven other very experienced mathematicians who are well-supported by Teaching Assistants embedded within the department. Leadership is distributed across the department, reflecting the model used at whole school level, and you would work closely and collaboratively with a KS3 and a KS5 co-ordinator of mathematics.
In return for your hard work, passion and commitment we offer:
• Bespoke CPD for new leaders, including coaching
• A supportive team of middle leader colleagues with whom you will work closely
• The opportunity to join a committed team of staff who believe that teaching is a great profession, and who challenge each other to excel
The current post-holder is also Brimsham's Senior Middle Leader, and therefore we are pleased to be able to offer this additional opportunity to suitably experienced and well-qualified applicants. If you are ambitious and looking to take on not only a departmental role, but also a whole school leadership challenge, then please indicate this when applying.
Why not visit the department and meet your future colleagues? Contact the Head’s PA, Mrs Bonnick, to arrange this.
The closing date for this post is Tuesday 26 February at 9:00 a.m.
