We are seeking an enthusiastic and determined teacher to join our forward thinking mathematics team. The mathematics department is an exciting learning environment with staff that have a passion and drive to share excellent lessons and learning experiences with the Everest students.
The ethos of the department is to challenge students to think big, work independently and push themselves to solve complex mathematical problems. The intent of our mathematics curriculum is to develop the logical thought and reasoning process of our students. This creates young mathematicians who have the skills, knowledge and resilience to solve complex mathematical problems. By creating a culture, of risking failure for the glory of success our students develop a growth mindset which empowers them to tackle and solve problems they would previously have thought were beyond them.
In the wider context, we are a fast paced and dynamic mixed comprehensive school meeting the needs of children of all abilities from 11-16 years. The school is in an exciting phase, having joined the high performing Bourne Education Trust in 2017. We are eager to appoint exceptional individuals who wish to make a significant contribution to the learning and lives of our students. We have a proven track record of working with and developing newly qualified teachers and those ready for promotion. We were obviously delighted with the swift progress being made by the school but are greedy for more. Our ideal candidates are energetic, ambitious (for themselves and their students), resilient and enthusiastic. This post is ideal for those wanting to be part of a rapid transformation and eager to work in a school and trust that puts quality education for its students at its core.
Everest Community Academy is an oversubscribed, mixed comprehensive school that was graded as ‘good’ by Ofsted in all categories in February 2020. Inspectors were particularly positive about the school’s leadership and the students ‘love of learning’. The school is a supportive, innovative, exciting place to be and is based in a modern building with state of the art facilities and an adjoining gym and community centre. Our values are to aspire, enrich and belong - these underpin all that we do.
We welcome applicants to contact the school and we would invite you into the school for a tour, following all socially distanced health and safety guidance. Please contact reception to arrange a tour. Please also look at our website and Facebook page to get a real flavour of who we are - or email us (Paul Grills, Acting Headteacher) to request a phone call to learn more.
Everest is a school driven by the relentless drive for excellence under our shared vision of ‘success is an attitude’. We believe every student has the ability to be successful and we do our utmost to ensure that this happens without anyone ‘slipping through the net’.
Everest provides a platform for young people to explore a broad range of subjects, develop interpersonal skills, be creative and work on their physical skills. All students and staff follow the Everest Learning strands which link all aspects of the school; Creative Confidence, Future Ready, Active Minds, Healthy Bodies, Global Citizens. This is the backbone of our culture, ethos and curriculum.
We are committed to identifying, developing and retaining talent amongst our staff with a bespoke CPD package in place for all of our team. We offer secondments and opportunities within the Trust to ensure we do not lose great people. We celebrate the success of our colleagues and students loudly and have high expectations and aspirations for everyone in our school community. We recognise the hard work of our team by our extended holidays and a well structured school day which really supports work / life balance and flexibility.
We reserve the right to interview/appoint upon appropriate application prior to the closing date.
