Inner London Pay Scale
Required for January 2021
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, dynamic and innovative Teacher of Mathematics. The post is for an excellent teacher who is able to enthuse both students and colleagues with their love for mathematics. We are looking for a person who is hard-working and believes that mathematics is a learned occupation in that all students can achieve and excel irrespective of starting points. We want an enthusiastic specialist who instills a love of learning and whose teaching is inspirational and aspirational.
If appointed, you will be joining a supportive, functional unit of dedicated, committed teachers who work tirelessly to improve the life chances of young people in our care. We are focused on delivering curriculums across the key stages that reflect the knowledge and skills needed by our students at each stage of their academic development and by the end of their time at our school. There is a buzz of enthusiasm throughout the faculty and a real sense of camaraderie as we navigate our course through the next stage of our journey. Staff are extremely positive about the school and the Faculty and go the extra mile to teach great lessons and build positive relationships with the students they teach.
The school celebrates a really positive and supportive relationship between managers and staff, between colleagues, and between staff and pupils. Paul Sutton, our Principal, encourages teachers to have an impact beyond their subject and he is always available and happy to discuss ideas with you as to how this can be achieved. We have an impressive range of extra-curricular activities and all our staff are involved in running at least one. Ours is a caring and well-ordered environment in which all students can enjoy learning, develop enquiring minds and acquire the skills and knowledge they need for a changing world. Every day we see the results of our efforts in students who work responsibly and with consideration for others – they are the best ambassadors for the school.
The personal development of all our staff is highly valued at GCA and we offer the opportunity to apply for our Learning Award of up to £2,400 per year for your continued professional development or other skills and talents. This is in addition to the school’s ongoing CPD programme. Other benefits staff can opt into include a cycle to work scheme and an interest-free annual season ticket loan.
GCA has a commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and has safer recruitment procedures in place for the selection of staff. It is committed to the principle of equal opportunities; we welcome all applicants and value the diversity they bring.
Please download the application form via the school’s website and email your completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org. Interested candidates are invited to visit the school before making an application.
