Thank you for your interest in joining our team at Stokesley School. This is an exciting time in terms of our development and a fantastic opportunity for a keen maths teacher to contribute to it.
Historically, we have achieved consistently good results in this area of the school and we are proud of our traditions. We are keen, however, to make improvements in a number of areas ensuring every child at our school achieves to the very best of their ability. That’s where you come in! We wish to recruit a creative and highly effective teacher who loves maths and can pass this on to young people. You will understand the significant contribution that learning maths to young people’s success and have the skills to make this a reality.
Stokesley School is a very popular fully comprehensive school and the successful candidate will be a key player in making it even better. Our philosophy is based firmly on the belief that all members of the school community have unique gifts and talents and our task is to help everyone to develop them, not only to raise standards of achievement but also so that they learn to think critically, set themselves the highest standards, experience the real joy of learning and raise their aspiration beyond what might have been expected. We are committed to staff development at all levels and this is evident in some of the excellent faculty and support teams who challenge and support their students, working hard to develop a vibrant learning culture. You will be part of a very supportive subject team, backed up by the School Leadership Team. We want to appoint a colleague who will enhance and complement the skills and experience of our current staff and who is passionate about the subject. The post is open to NQTs and to more experienced colleagues.

Please make clear in your application the ways in which your abilities and experience make you a suitable candidate for this post-don’t be too modest! I look forward to reading your application and to welcoming a creative and dynamic colleague to Stokesley.
