Salary: EMS Mainscale £23 228 – £36 073
We are planning to expand our outreach work and are therefore building our teaching capacity by recruiting a Teacher of Mathematics to join our team from January 2020 or September 2019 if possible.
Exeter Mathematics School (EMS) is a unique 6th form, created to meet the needs of able Mathematics students throughout the South West. Jointly sponsored by the University of Exeter and Exeter College, it opened in September 2014. The school is a learning community in which students’ needs are at the centre. EMS students expect high levels of challenge coupled with thoughtful support and guidance, working in an atmosphere that fosters creative and rigorous thinking, encourages enquiry and engenders confidence in problem solving.
In addition to Mathematics and Further Mathematics, the vast majority of students elect to study Physics and increasing numbers are also studying Computer Science. They also embark on ambitious projects to prepare them for independent study at university and are able to access the curriculum and resources of Exeter College. Teachers from all departments work closely with one another to enrich and integrate the curriculum.
We are seeking to appoint an inspirational, highly-qualified, innovative and reflective Teacher of Mathematics. You must be committed to developing pedagogy and collaborative working and be able to challenge, stretch and support the most able students as they prepare to study mathematics-related degrees at top universities. A determination to make a positive difference to students is essential, as is a commitment to supporting the school’s core outreach activities, including those held at the weekends.
EMS is a small school, catering for just 120 students. You will be one of only 11 teachers in the school; as such you will need to work flexibly and will have a significant role in the ongoing development of the school and its curriculum. Both experienced teachers and highly qualified NQTs are welcome to apply and we will also consider a job-share if two suitable candidates apply.
EMS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. All appointments are subject to satisfactory DBS checks, together with the receipt of references.
