We are now looking to recruit a head of mathematics, following the retirement of the current role holder. As head of department, you will develop and lead an exciting curriculum which enables the highest level of pupil progress and attainment.

We offer opportunities to take leadership of a whole school project alongside your middle leadership role, support with the NPQSM or other agreed leadership training, and associate membership of the senior leadership team as a professional development opportunity.
We regularly review our practices to ensure that teachers can concentrate on teaching and students on learning. This includes a rigorous behaviour policy where every member of the school community takes responsibility for their actions.
We offer high-quality, personalised professional development, in addition to excellent career development opportunities. We have a strong sense of coaching and collaboration which means that your practice is constantly developed, alongside training sessions that are tailored to you.
As a head of department at Hethersett Academy you will be part of the Inspiration Trust, one of the UK's most successful multi-academy trusts, with a family of 14 schools across Norfolk and Suffolk.
