TEACHER OF MATHEMATICS
We are looking for a dynamic A Level/GCSE teacher to join a well-established and well-resourced Mathematics department for September 2024. The teaching team consists of six highly experienced members of staff, many of whom are fluent in all branches of the subject. We offer A Level courses in both Mathematics and Further Mathematics; our Further Mathematics programme of study includes the Mechanics and Decision Maths options. The teaching groups are small, usually averaging ten students, and each class has six hours contact time a week. The department enjoys the full backing of the school in pursuing outside events such as the UK and US Maths Challenges, with a number of students qualifying for follow-on rounds each year. The ability to offer MAT and STEP Mathematics would be an advantage.
Hurtwood House is one of England’s most exciting and successful schools, specialising exclusively in the Sixth Form. We have an impressive academic record, a reputation for preparing students successfully for higher education and are renowned for the quality of our pastoral care. A culture of high expectations, creativity and professionalism permeates the school and we encourage students and staff to work in partnership to achieve the academic and personal outcomes that are important to us.
Hurtwood House has its own generous salary scale and benefits – our staff are welcome to join students in the first class dining facilities for three meals a day and there is a staff wellbeing programme, comprising in-school sessions and membership of the local leisure centre and its facilities, along with membership of our EAP. Many of our teachers become involved in managing boarding house life for accommodation or an additional allowance. We are a member of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.
