Vacancy: Maths Teacher

Queen Elizabeth High School wishes to appoint a teacher of maths. The successful candidate’s timetable will potentially include GCSE and A-Level maths classes. Our maths department is outstanding and achieves some of the best outcomes in the North East. The subject is very popular in the school curriculum, with up to 70 students each year choosing to study maths as one of their  A-Level options and a further 20 choosing further maths in the sixth form. We expect our teachers to have the necessary subject knowledge to teach high achieving A-Level students and the skills to be able to inspire, motivate and support all students, whatever their needs or abilities. You would be joining a friendly and supportive team with a well-established collegial ethos.

Queen Elizabeth High School is a friendly, welcoming, successful, mixed comprehensive with a proud history dating back to Elizabethan times. Our ‘outstanding eagerness to promote good learning’ is drawn directly from the original charter granted to the people of Hexham in 1599 to educate the town’s young people. It forms the basis of our ethos today Respect, Engage, Aspire, which centres around our belief in the highest academic standards for everyone and our valuing of education in its broadest sense. There is much that is already very good at our school: confident, well-behaved learners, dedicated, loyal staff and supportive parents.
