This is your chance to be part of a growing body of exceptional teachers who combine the best of mastery approaches with rigorous, rich problem-solving tasks.

Maths is brought to life at School 21 as students grapple with the big ideas and concepts that govern how the world works. Teachers plan exciting and challenging lessons, enquiries and projects that support students to develop a problem solving toolkit. There is a strong focus on oracy in maths lessons with high quality talk aiding deeper understanding of difficult problems and concepts. Across the school the beauty and complexity of maths is celebrated.

School 21 is an all-through school and we are looking for an inspirational maths teacher to work across GCSE and A-level for a period of maternity cover for approximately six months. You will make maths exhilarating for all children. You will analyse student data to identify underachievement and develop intervention strategies to ensure all students make outstanding progress.

You will be able to ground students in the basics of maths, deliver problem-solving projects and contribute to STEM and other cross-curricular projects. You will have the skill to move students seamlessly from the concrete to the abstract and have a strong understanding of global best practice across the age ranges. You will be open to the notion that advancements in new technology mean we may be able to rethink the pedagogy and curriculum of maths.
