Teacher of Mathematics (part time Mon - Thursday)

Required for January 2019, for one term only

MPS/UPS + London Fringe Allowance

We are seeking an experienced Maths teacher for a term, to cover a member of the department who is taking shared parental leave. The ideal candidate would be a committed teacher who is able to teach KS3, KS4 and KS5. An ability to teach Further Mathematics and or Core Maths would certainly be advantageous.

We are a very supportive Mathematics department, who work well together as a team and enjoy teaching our subject. The vast majority of our students enjoy learning Mathematics at the school and this is partly due to the enthusiastic nature of our staff. We have a strong history of success at GCSE and A Level, with consistently high results achieved every year. 70% of our A Level Mathematicians typically gain A* to B grades and 100% of our Further Mathematicians typically gain A or A*. At GCSE our results have always been close to and often above 90% grades 4 to 9 ( A*-C ).

Educating 1200 students, The Bishop’s Stortford High School provides a single-sex education for boys in Years 7 to 11 and has a large, thriving co-educational sixth form, with over one hundred girls on roll. Last year 82% of our students achieved grade 4+ in both English and Mathematics at GCSE and 55% A* - B at A-Level. We have a strong ethos, based on high expectations and standards for all, a committed and supportive staff who deliver high quality, engaging lessons and well-behaved students with excellent attitudes to learning.

We were graded Outstanding in every category by Ofsted in March 2017.

Since our time as a specialist Mathematics and Computing School, Mathematics has been a very popular choice at A-Level with over 100 students choosing to study Mathematics and typically more than 10 studying Further Mathematics. We value staff development with A-Level teaching being shared across the department. The appointed candidate can expect to gain significant enjoyment and professional fulfilment from working here.

An application form and further details are immediately available from the Headteacher’s P.A. Mrs D. Landers at the school or downloadable from the website:  www.tbshs.org
