Full time
Start Date
September 2019

If you share our values, join our family.

Serving the bustling city of Sheffield, Outwood Academy City was constructed in 2011 with state-of-the-art facilities and joined Outwood Grange Academies Trust three years later.

Prior to achieving Academy status, just 48% of students achieved five GCSEs at Grade A*-C, including English and Maths. In 2018, over 68% of students achieved the new measure: English and Maths combined at grade 4 or above.

The academy has undergone a huge transformation for its 1000 students, with an innovative curriculum and a personalised approach to learning enabling them to realise their vocational, practical, creative and academic abilities.

You can join us on our journey and build a career that’s equally exciting.

Are you ready for leadership development within the high performing Outwood Grange Academies Trust? Are you a committed, ambitious, and outstanding Teacher of Mathematics? If so we can give all the support you need to become a great leader and take our achievements to the next level. From your first day, you’ll have a Director of Mathematics as your experienced mentor to guide you and encourage you to grow personally and professionally.

Every member of the team benefits from two hours’ CPD each week, along with opportunities to access programmes through the Outwood Institute of Education. What’s more, we are a growing trust currently comprising 21 secondary academies, meaning you can build your experience working with other Heads of Mathematics and potentially impacting on many more students’ lives. Our Executive Director of Mathematics leads the Yorkshire and Humber MathsHub, so you have access to the most current developments in Mathematics education and the opportunity to share good practice in the wider field.

You’ll find Outwood Academy City a warm and welcoming school, where students love to learn and every member of the community feels valued and engaged. We operate at the heart of the Outwood Grange Academies Trust, so there’s plenty of scope to build your career across South Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, and move into the highest levels of leadership.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a well-qualified, driven professional, who is an outstanding classroom practitioner, to join academy. You will be an inspiring leader with the energy and creativity to lead and motivate a large team. You must possess the skills and determination to make a significant difference to the lives of our students and share our ethos: ‘students first; raising standards and transforming lives’.
