Required for January 2017, a well-qualified and enthusiastic Maths teacher able to deliver rich, well balanced Maths lessons up to A Level.
The School offers a traditional academic education and our expectations of pupils are high. Around 10 pupils each year go to Oxbridge colleges.
Currently, over 60% of the cost of running the School is funded by a charitable Foundation, with the balance coming from grants from a variety of sources and from fees. Around 80% of pupils receive bursary support; 14% pay no fees at all and just over 20% pay full fees. The resultant mix of pupils is refreshingly down to earth and lacking in pretension, but there is an underlying desire to make the most of the opportunities on offer.
The school has a proud tradition of sporting achievement and runs an active and successful extra-curricular programme that includes CCF and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. Music is outstanding and in addition to the Marching Band, there is a large and impressive Chapel Choir, plus various orchestras, classical ensembles and jazz groups. Drama flourishes with regular productions in the purpose-built theatre and the Art School produces work of a very high order.
The lesson timetable is planned across a two week period (known as Week A and B), which is spread across six days, with five lessons on Saturday morning and games or activity sessions on three afternoons each week including Saturday. The school works on a three weekly cycle, with a leave weekend or longer break at the end of every three week period.
All staff are expected to contribute to the busy co-curricular programme throughout the year and day staff are required to help out in a boarding house for one evening each week. This would not apply to this role due to the short nature of the contract although you would be expected to teach on Saturday mornings.
The successful applicant will be a well-qualified and capable graduate with an enthusiasm for the teaching of Maths within the framework of a large co-educational boarding school. Innovation, flair and vision will be highly valued, as will the ability to inspire pupils both in and out of the classroom.
Energy, resilience and a willingness to work with others in the pursuit of the school?s charitable mission are also desirable traits.
