Full time post (if two suitable candidates apply we will consider a job-share)

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 have ambitious plans to expand our outreach work to support more students in the South West to develop into able and enthusiastic mathematicians, and we are embarking on new curriculum developments to enrich our own students’ experience. We are therefore seeking to appoint an inspirational, highly-qualified, innovative and reflective Teacher of Mathematics. This role is linked to additional funding and will therefore initially be a three-year post, to be extending if funding continues.

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 12 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.

Teachers with a strong background in pastoral care will have the opportunity to apply for additional responsibilities relating to student wellbeing. Further details about this and other aspects of the role can be found below. If you would like more information or the opportunity to discuss this post or visit the school, please get in touch by either emailing jobs@exeterms.ac.uk or ringing 01392 429020.
