Barnes Wallis Academy is seeking a Teacher of Maths to join in January 2020 or earlier if possible.
This is an exciting time to be joining Barnes Wallis Academy as Head of Faculty, Maths. You would be leading a small and committed team of maths specialists who want every student to succeed. In August 2019, the percentage of students gaining a 4+ in maths rose by 17%. However, there is still more to do and we are determined to build further on that success this year.
As a member of the extended senior leadership team, you will not only lead the department, but will be involved in the running of the Academy as a whole.

Equally, you may be an existing middle leader who is looking for more experience of whole school leadership on SLT with a view to progressing your career further.
