Upon joining the team at Stationers’ Crown Woods Academy, our successful applicant will be a part of a department who embrace the latest developments in Mathematics teaching and are committed to promoting the joy, beauty and power of Mathematics to our young people. The department has a variety of backgrounds and experiences and we aim to utilise the collective knowledge and skills to offer outstanding levels of support for our students. We encourage collaboration, debate and discussion both within our team and in our classrooms and strongly believe that this culture has led to the excellent track record of success in Maths. We are committed to ensuring that all of our students make excellent progress regardless of starting points. Over the last four years the proportions of students at the academy securing Grade 9-4 in the subject has exceeded national averages, and are now working hard to ensure that our most able students secure the highest grades.
Mathematics is very popular in the sixth form and there is a large uptake of the subject at AS and A-level.

This is alongside the IB MYP in order to develop a deep and broad Mathematical understanding within our students in preparation for their GCSE studies, which commence in Year 10.

Our curriculum is underpinned by research on task design, variation theory, concept development and raising achievement. Full training will be available to the successful candidate.
