We are seeking to appoint an inspirational and innovative thinker to our strong and dynamic leadership team, someone who can help us generate the capacity for further exciting change and development in learning and teaching within our school. 

Are you that person?

We are looking to appoint an inspiring mathematician to lead mathematics; a visionary school leader with experience across the 11 to 16 age range, with demonstrable impact on outcomes for pupils.

Your experience will show that you are committed to developing young people into analytical, creative and resilient learners. As an outstanding teacher, you will have excellent interpersonal skills and be able to engage and enthuse not only the pupils, but your colleagues within the mathematics department. You will demonstrate a passion for the subject, bring it to life and generate a ‘buzz’ of enthusiasm for learning.

The successful applicant will lead our whole school Numeracy Strategy and will be an integral part of the Leadership Team, contributing to school development in the wider context.

If you have experience of leading a mathematics department and feel that you are the person for this role, with a real desire to join Wolstanton High School and embark on the next exciting stage in your career, we would love to hear from you.

Wolstanton High School is a rapidly improving academy within the Shaw Education Trust. 

Our recent Ofsted inspection (May 2018), stated that:

  • This is an improving school that is now well led and managed. The executive principal, the head of school and other leaders have high expectations of themselves, the staff and pupils.
  • Leadership is developing at all levels………provision for pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities, teaching, learning and assessment, and personal development, behaviour and welfare, are well led.

The Shaw Education Trust is led by an Executive Leadership Team steeped in school leadership and improvement experience: The Trust is fully committed to the continued professional development of all members of staff and leads extensive training which has allowed staff to develop their skills and expertise.  Working within the Trust provides colleagues with extensive opportunities to network and share practice, in an ethos of mutual support and professional learning.

Wolstanton High School is dedicated to the safeguarding and wellbeing of students; all staff must share this commitment. The successful candidate will be required to undergo appropriate screening including Enhanced DBS check.

For an informal discussion and further information about the post, please call our Head of School, Mrs Hobson.  Visits to the school are welcome but not essential.
