Job Opportunities

  • Teacher of Mathematics

    Required for September 2021

    Ability to teach Computer Science an advantage, but not essential

    Part time considered

    Applications are welcomed from NQTs

    To support our growing and expanding school, we are seeking applications from a dedicated, hardworking, highly skilled and knowledgeable teacher to join our Mathematics department, within a highly successful, happy, well-resourced, exceptional non-selective 11-18 school.

    We are a split site, semi-rural, mixed 11-18 non-selective converter academy with approximately 1467 students, including over 240 students in our Sixth Form. We are situated centrally in Crowborough on the outskirts of the Ashdown Forest, an area of outstanding natural beauty. We are close to Tunbridge Wells and the South Coast. The vast majority of our staff travel to Beacon from a variety of destinations within the South East, including Brighton, Eastbourne, Lewes and Tunbridge Wells.

    We work meticulously to secure a culture of unapologetically high expectations that are underpinned by our collective, uncompromising belief and ambition for the students of Beacon Academy, and for the experienced, loyal, highly-skilled and highly-effective team of staff that teach them, allowing teachers to teach and students to learn in a school where leadership, management, behaviour and welfare are all judged as outstanding. The Academy and the Department of Mathematics are committed to the development of both its staff and students.

    Beacon Academy is a National Teaching School and a National Support School and we take a leading role in recruiting and training new entrants to the profession. Anna Robinson, Headteacher is a National Leader of Education and we have seven Specialist Leaders of Education across a variety of areas on our staff body. We invest in our teachers through our highly acclaimed NQT programme, recognised as outstanding. We currently support teachers in their second and third year with our Recently Qualified Teacher programme, which we are developing as part of the Early Career Framework. In 2019, Beacon Partnership was selected by the Chartered College, the professional body for teaching, to deliver the prestigious Chartered Teacher (CTeach) Programme in East and West Sussex, Kent and Brighton and Hove.

    We secure excellent outcomes for our students. In 2019 our Progress 8 score was 0.97. As a non-selective, non-denominational, non-fee-paying school, we are immensely proud and delighted to have received this confirmation, once again, of our high-ranking position. We are in an esteemed group of 6% of schools nationally who are now categorised as ‘well above average’ for two years in a row. There are approximately 25 schools nationally who have been above us for each of the last three years (0.7% of all schools). As ever, this is a reflection of our vision and our determination to consistently provide the best possible education for all of our students, and to become an exceptional school for our community, both locally and nationally.

    The closing date for applications is 10am on Monday 17th May 2021

    Despite the challenges we face, we will do everything we can to continue with recruitment at Beacon Academy at this time, following all guidance and using all the resources available to us. Interview activities may vary, but our recruitment will be fair and in line with safeguarding policy.

    We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post is subject to Enhanced DBS clearance and suitable references.
