Head of Mathematics

Apply for this job

About the role

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and inspirational teacher to lead the Mathematics Department. Mathematics is a popular and very successful subject within the school; students achieve some of our best results at both GCSE and A Level year on year. Many students continue to study the subject at A Level and beyond. The department is staffed with eight well-qualified specialists, from very experienced members of staff to teachers just starting their careers. The team works very well to support the students and develop their mathematical understanding. The role would provide the ideal opportunity to build on the strengths of the department, whilst also proving an opportunity to develop and make the department even more successful and would suit someone in their first middle leadership position or an experienced Head of Department. The post is available due to the previous post-holder having taken up a promoted position in another school. As a senior middle leader position in the school it provides the opportunity to gain whole school experience in preparation for a senior leadership role, which would be further supported through the school’s CPD programme and secondment opportunities. We run two secondments to SLT each year which provide an opportunity to lead a whole school project and gain experience as a member of SLT.

The school is committed to safeguarding children and young people.  All post holders are subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check (Disclosure & Barring Service).

The Application Form and further information can be downloaded from the School’s website or you may contact Mrs Dart by email, kda@richardhale.co.uk.  The application form, together with a letter of application on no more than two sides of A4, outlining the skills and abilities you could bring to the post, should be emailed to Mrs Dart. Closing date for applications is noon on Wednesday 14th April 2021.
