FULL TIME Head of Faculty – MATHS, Mainscale / UPS plus TLR

At Cumbria Futures Federation we work at the heart of our communities. Our small secondary schools are inclusive, welcoming and ambitious.  With a wide range of abilities in each class and an innovative curriculum, our ‘Good’ schools punch well above their weight and provide a unique experience for our students. 

We are seeking a full-time Head of Faculty to teach and lead Maths across our Federation.  Ideally you will join our small and friendly team ASAP but we will wait until September 2022 for the right candidate.  This is a brilliant opportunity for an ambitious and enthusiastic leader to continue and develop the excellent work that has already been done to improve maths and numeracy across our schools.

This role is primarily based at Solway Community School but the successful candidate will be expected to lead our team across the Federation and undertake some teaching at our partner school, Beacon Hill Community School in Aspatria.

Our small, friendly schools provide excellent opportunities to be involved in school-wide activities as well as the challenge of teaching across the age and ability range.  You will be determined and inspirational in the classroom, determined to ensure all learners achieve, whatever their ability.  You will join a dynamic and ambitious Senior Leadership Team who together drive school improvement across both of our schools.  As you develop with us, you will have the opportunity to take on a breadth of responsibilities that are not always available in larger schools.

If you feel you share our values and feel you might be ready to take your next step in leadership, then we would like to hear from you.  We welcome applications from colleagues at all stages in their careers – if you are a motivated but inexperienced recently qualified teacher, then consider making an application; we are great at growing our own.

For an informal conversation about the role and what it is like working for us, please contact the school office to arrange a chat with our Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher.

For additional information and to apply please visit our website www.solwayschool.co.uk or call 016973 31234 for an application pack.
