Head of Maths - January 2018
ITN Mark Education is recruiting a Head of Maths for an academy in Somerset. They're looking for someone who can start in January 2018. Why the wait? Because the current HOD Maths isn't leaving - they've taken on a leadership position at the school.
The school isn't your typical rural Somerset school, and the student population is made up of students from local villages, but also students from the town centre, where they may have had a tougher upbringing. Students still display excellent behaviour according to both Ofsted and teachers that we send there on supply, and Maths results have improved year on year since the academy was set up.
The challenges of running a Maths department are widely known in schools, and at this school you would still be facing them. The advantage is that you would be able to call on the person who was just in your job for support and guidance, meaning that this could be the step up to HOD that you are looking for. The school has a long history of promoting their own staff, and many of the SLT were NQTs there as well.
If you're more experienced, then it is worth knowing that the academy has recently added a struggling school to their trust, and the HOD Maths could be involved in supporting their Maths department as part of the school improvement partnership.
If you're looking for a move up to Head of Department next year, and this sounds like your kind of job, send in your CV or call Andy on .
