The Henry Box School an exciting place to work and learn. We are committed to providing education that transforms lives and we are ambitious in our pursuit of excellence.
This is a hugely exciting time for our family of schools as we are presented with a rare opportunity to make a real difference to the lives and life chances of so many young people. We believe that education can transform lives.
We think deeply about how we can have the biggest impact on pupils. In a world where the algorithms of life give us more of the same, we believe education has the role to give children something different. We continually ask ourselves the following five questions:
• Are we securing equity?
• Is our leadership driving school improvement?
• Is our curriculum irresistible?
• Are we research informed?
• Are we deploying resources effectively?
All schools in our Trust have a culture of compassion underpinned by high expectations and understanding. We have three rules: ready, respectful and safe. We are a truly inclusive organization and passionately believe that every child has a right to mainstream education.
Our Mathematics faculty ethos is centred on developing autonomous learners who have a deep relational understanding of key mathematical concepts. We share and continue to work on even better ways to do this. Explicit teaching of problem solving backed up with deliberate practice of identified gaps and regular low stakes quizzing work to develop fluency. We have outstanding exam results in year 11 and year 13 but are very proud of the fact that we achieve this through a constant drive to improve the way we explain and model mathematics to all students regardless of their prior attainment. A shared team room; collaborative planning meetings and pedagogy focussed faculty meetings mean that new and more experienced staff support each other constantly in our work and outside. We really are quite familial!
This is an excellent opportunity for a talented teacher to join a strong and successful Mathematics Faculty. Applications are welcome from NQTs or experienced teachers. Visits to the school are welcome, by prior arrangement.
The Henry Box School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
