Description

The successful candidate will be responsible for teaching maths up to GCSE and possibly A Level in this well- established and successful department of ten full-time and two part time teachers with a specialist maths intervention tutor. You will be guided by our experienced Heads of Department, alongside a supportive and collaborative team to deliver engaging and purposeful lessons. Excellent subject knowledge is essential. Classes are taught in mixed ability groups in years 7 & 8, loosely set in Year 9 and more finely set at Key Stage 4. Uptake at A level is high with three Maths Classes and one Further Maths Class in each year. Lessons are taught in a fully resourced purpose-built block with interactive whiteboards in all classrooms.

Furze Platt is a highly successful and inclusive mixed comprehensive school serving the children of Maidenhead. At Furze Platt, 1500 students of all abilities develop the skills and qualities to enable them to excel in the future. We are an ambitious, high-achieving and fully inclusive school in which our students are challenged and supported to achieve excellence. We are well placed for access, with good transport links to and from London and surrounding counties. Our school is very well resourced and equipped with many new facilities benefiting students and staff. These include a state-of-the-art theatre, gym, fitness suite and a new three-storey teaching block incorporating science laboratories and classrooms. We are also rolling out our Laptops for Learning initiative to ensure all students are equipped with a laptop.

We offer a friendly and harmonious campus atmosphere, with a Senior Leadership Team who genuinely want to see you succeed and develop. Career opportunities allow you to grow professionally within Furze Platt. Furze Platt is the lead school for Teach Maidenhead, a teacher training partnership which offers School Direct teacher training giving staff the opportunity to develop their mentoring skills. ECTs are allocated a mentor, a reduced timetable and the opportunity to attend training sessions run by specialists from within the school.

We are keen to ensure that we support the physical and mental wellbeing of our staff. Discounted membership is available for the use of a fully equipped and well-maintained gym on-site. Staff are provided with a laptop and many have their own classrooms. We offer access to an employee advice service (Care First) which provides information, helpful resources, and a counselling service. We encourage community spirit and staff involvement through various social events, recent ones being our Christmas Party, “tea on the terrace” in the summer term, an orienteering event, murder mystery and cooking competitions, sports after school and a Furze Platt fantasy football league. Student and staff nominations, as well as Long Service Awards, recognise colleagues’ contributions to our school. We have free parking on site and we also ensure that freshly brewed coffee is ready for you during break-time with edible treats to help you through the week!
