Can you make maths fun for our students and help them navigate a world that sometimes feels a bit confusing?
Can you connect different subjects, like showing how the number pi pops up in the shapes of rivers?
If that sounds like your kind of teaching, we want you! We’re on the lookout for a Maths teacher who knows how to make lessons exciting and engaging. Our Maths Department is friendly, supportive, and well-equipped. You will teach across the ability ranges and inspire our students to think analytically.
Our leadership team is all about taking care of our colleagues. We prioritise mental health and a good work/life balance. We’ve got systems in place to make sure our staff thrive, including a behaviour system that’s centrally managed, a clear management structure, and plenty of opportunity for personal and professional growth.
Sir Herbert Leon Academy is an 11-19 Mixed Comprehensive in Bletchley, South Milton Keynes. Our academy has 587 learners and employs around 100 dedicated teachers and support staff. The academy’s senior leadership team places high priority on colleagues’ mental health and work/life balance and has established systems to allow staff to flourish. There is a centralised behaviour system, a clear line management structure and opportunities for personal and professional development. As Sir Herbert Leon is a relatively small secondary school, new staff can foster strong relationships with both colleagues and students very swiftly, which enables them to embed within their new team quickly and know how best to teach students, according to their individual needs. The students are the beating heart of the school; it is a privilege to teach them as we continue on our journey to raise aspirations and outcomes for the local community.
