Durrington High School has a great Mathematics department staffed by an innovative and collaborative team. We have a shared ethos within the department that has enabled us to achieve excellent examination results for the past 8 years. We are continually striving to improve, and endeavour to ensure that every student is provided with an outstanding learning environment that allows them to achieve their best. 

We are looking to recruit a strong teacher who will be able to work with the other leaders to support the staff in achieving excellent outcomes for the students. Leadership development is a strength of our school and whether you are an ambitious developing or experienced teacher, you will be invested in by a range of leaders. Specific areas of leadership will be agreed after appointment, which gives greater flexibility. We are seeking the right ‘match’.

The successful candidate will be an excellent teacher who is dedicated to delivering high quality lessons and is prepared to commit themselves to the role completely. This is not a department where you can rest on your laurels; we have extremely high expectations and expect every teacher to make a contribution to our on-going success. As a research school, you will work with a department that makes the most of evidence informed teaching and uses teaching for mastery as a focus at all times.

Our exam outcomes remain considerably above national averages. In 2021 62% of students achieved grade 5 or above at GCSE and 28% grade 7 or above. The highest achieving students also took Further Mathematics at GCSE, with 57% achieving grade 7 or above.  We are a large department currently consisting of 11 full time teachers, 2 part time teachers and two TAs who work solely within the department. Every class room also has an interactive smartboard. With year groups of 330, this makes our outcomes even more special. 

In return you will find us a very supportive and warm team, with a range of experiences and teaching styles but also receptive to new ideas. You will be working with a focused and proactive team who thrive on sharing ideas and resources whilst working to a fully interactive Scheme of Work that every member of staff follows and contributes to, this includes numerous resources and structured homework tasks. 

If you are an enthusiastic, hardworking, conscientious and energetic leader and teacher who not only values young people but can motivate and inspire them across the age and ability range then we would like to hear from you. 

If you would like further information, a telephone call with the Executive Headteacher/line manager or a visit to the school, which are welcomed please contact agemel@durring.com and visit our website https://durringtonhighschool.co.uk
