It is an exciting time at Becket Keys Church of England School (Outstanding, 2014). We are working hard to build upon the GCSE successes of our founding cohorts to ensure our next cohort get their best possible results in 2020, whilst also establishing our new Sixth Form into its third year.

To cover a maternity leave, we are now seeking a teacher to join our successful and hard-working Mathematics team. To start with, this is just a temporary post, but we will try to extend the contract if we can. It would suit a colleague who is coming back to teaching, or looking to move from their current school to a part-time position. Teachers early in their career may apply, but it would not suit an NQT as the role is definitely part-time.

You will be teaching Key Stage 3 Mathematics in the first instance, but capable colleagues may be given classes with GCSE students, and potentially even A-Level. We will want to use your expertise.

The successful candidate will have a proven successful track record in ensuring rapid progress in Mathematics. We are looking for someone who is passionate about teaching and learning; you must be inspiring to students and skilled in enthusing them about this crucial subject.

This is an extremely vibrant and energetic department with a wonderful working atmosphere. Anyone joining the team should expect to engage with the professional development programme and contribute to the lively department meetings.

You will have the opportunity to work with Russell Education Trust which extends to five highly successful schools and means that you will work alongside members of their advisory team on a weekly basis.

The appointee will be committed to our high expectations and core values - we welcome applications from teachers irrespective of their faith or lack of it. However, we ask for applicants to appreciate and respect the Christian beliefs of the school, beliefs of others and to have strong moral principles.

Staff will be provided with a comprehensive induction programme and laptop.

We also run a child care voucher scheme.
