2 Staff Vacancies

2nd in Maths Teacher
Required for September 2024
Full time, MPS/UPS + TLR

2nd in Maths Teacher

 

Due to the retirement of a long-serving colleague, Beaminster School is seeking to appoint a dynamic, highly motivated and inspirational teacher of Mathematics to join us as a 2nd in Mathematics from September 2024.

 

This is an exceptional career opportunity for a colleague who is passionate about the entitlement of young people to a rich and varied Mathematics curriculum, as well as a pivotal role for us in improving the life chances of pupils in our community. You will have an unwavering belief in the potential of every student, and a contagious enthusiasm for your subject which will excite and motivate all students to achieve their very best.

 

As part of the role, you will be committed to taking on a key area of responsibility in Mathematics. However, in discussion with the Head of Department, we are able to adjust the job description to work with the strengths of the appointee and provide development areas as agreed. 

 

Working within a vibrant, supportive and highly successful faculty, we provide a unique environment in which both teachers and pupils thrive. You will be a creative and innovative classroom teacher who is totally committed to the progress of all students in our popular and fully comprehensive school which stands in beautiful open countryside on the edge of Beaminster, a Dorset town with great charm and historic interest, just 6 miles from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

 

Our school values of Ambition, Service and Kindness represent our unwavering commitment towards our pupils and staff becoming the very best that they can be, achieving their full potential within an inclusive community that has a strong and unique sense of belonging. Our pupils are expected to be ready to learn, to work hard and to celebrate their own and each other’s achievements. We have staff who are devoted to providing the best education and pastoral care possible, and pupils of whom we are extremely proud; this mix creates a school that is a pleasure to work and learn in; the wellbeing of our staff and students is the highest priority.

 

As a school, we set our standards high in all aspects of our work, and place teaching and learning at the heart of everything that we do. This was affirmed by our recent Ofsted inspection (September 2023) that was a resounding ’Good’ in all aspects of our work.

 

The Mathematics department has a suite of 5 teaching rooms, with 4 full-time and two part-time teachers, as well as specialist teaching staff working in our Inclusion Hub. We have a joint Sixth Form with our partner school, the Sir John Colfox Academy in Bridport, offering a broad and developing range of courses. Sixth Form numbers are strong, offering the opportunity to teach at this level.

 

We are committed to transforming the lives of our young people and believe that happy, valued and supported staff lead to better outcomes for our students, so have an absolute commitment to staff development through personalised induction and varied programmes for leadership, collaboration and subject development focused around high quality teaching and learning.
