More about this employer


We are seeking to appoint a talented and inspirational teacher of Maths who will have the opportunity to join the Maths Department in a successful and well-respected school with a large Sixth Form. 

The successful candidate will join a well-resourced and vibrant Maths Department which is housed in its own teaching block with excellent facilities.  This is a magnificent opportunity to develop teaching skills within a friendly, well qualified department which achieves excellent results and where Maths and Further Maths are popular subjects at A-Level.  The Department is well organised, fully embracing the new curriculum and assessment changes in secondary Maths.

Highams Park School is a highly successful and heavily oversubscribed local 11-18 comprehensive with approximately 1600 students on roll including approximately 400 in the 6th Form.  In the most recent 2017 OFSTED inspection report the school was judged to be good and excellent results are achieved at GCSE and A-level.  The school has an excellent reputation in the local area and students now enjoy the new 6th form building which opened in September 2017.  The school is a converter Academy.

Please email the school on  Mrs Sharon Croft, HR Manager, or go to our website to find out more. Please complete our application form (download from website) and return by midday on Wednesday 16 June 2021.

Early applications will be considered on receipt and interviews scheduled accordingly

The Maths Department provides a forward thinking and professionally supportive environment. Standards of achievement are high and the department plays a key role in contributing to our very positive whole school ethos. Staff are encouraged to share ideas regularly and there is a supportive atmosphere between members of the department.  The Department is housed in a modern building with ten spacious and well-equipped teaching rooms. Staff are encouraged to use these resources effectively and imaginatively with frequent support provided through training and the sharing of good practice.

We are one of the few schools that offer A-level Maths, Further Maths and Level 3 Core Maths in the 6th Form, all of which are popular options at the school with many students regularly proceeding to study mathematical subjects at higher education.  We are rightly proud of the high attainment of our KS5 Mathematicians and the successful candidate will have opportunity to contribute to this well-established teaching team.
