The School

We are a successful and heavily oversubscribed 11-18 co-educational, Church of England, comprehensive school of over 1700 students, serving families from the whole of greater Bristol and beyond. We are located at the heart of the city and have a diverse student community with considerable parental support. Our diversity is a strength and something we celebrate. The Redcliffe Sixth Form Centre currently houses more than 700 students taken from our own school and from many other schools across the City.

Over the last four years more than 80% of our students have achieved five or more GCSEs at grade 4 or above and over 40% of students have achieved three or more GCSEs at grade 7 or above. We are in the top 20% of schools nationally for outcomes in English and Maths at GCSE and over the last three years prior to the pandemic our Attainment 8 score for all GCSE subjects is 55, putting us in the top 12% of schools nationally, while our Progress 8 score of 0.29 (3-year average) is consistently significantly above the national average.

Inspection Reports

Our success is recognised in inspection judgements. Our two most recent Ofsted judgements were outstanding in all categories, and our three most recent church school (SIAMS) inspections were outstanding.

The Department

Mathematics is a friendly department with a well-qualified, committed team of teachers who enjoy working collaboratively. There is a lot of extra-curricular maths, especially in the sixth form. Many students have taken part in the British Mathematical Olympiad and Sixth Form Interschool Maths Competitions. There are currently over 200 students studying Maths at A Level. Several students in recent years have gone on to study Mathematics at top universities, including Oxbridge, and there is considerable support and encouragement for these students from the department. We are also proud of the way we help under confident and lower ability mathematicians develop.

What we are looking for

We would welcome a colleague with a passion for maths teaching who loves to see mathematicians of all abilities enjoying their maths, learning actively, and making rapid progress. The maths department are a forward looking team who engage in collaborative development and we would welcome a colleague who wants to contribute their ideas. We are seeking to appoint candidates able to teach Mathematics to Key Stages 3 and 4, and to Year 12, and to all abilities.
