    Midhurst Rother College is an 11 to 18 academy located in beautiful surroundings situated inside the new South Downs National Park. Accommodated in a new £31 million building the College obtained an ‘outstanding’ judgement in all Ofsted categories in 2013. The College is on a strong upward trajectory of improvement and is very much the school of choice in the local area and beyond.

The post is initially offered for one year with the possibility of becoming permanent.

    Students are keen to learn and want to be engaged and challenged with lessons that are vibrant and interesting. The Mathematics curriculum team is strong, enthusiastic & passionate about Mathematics and totally committed to helping every pupil achieve their full potential.

    An extensive training and Inset programme along with a ‘laptop for staff’ scheme are in place. All those joining the College contribute to its wider life, especially its already rich and diverse programme of enrichment activities. Mathematics is crucial to the College’s future curriculum plans and its activities play a large role in its extra-curricular programme.

    Applications from Newly Qualified Teachers looking for their first post or more experienced teachers looking for a career move are equally welcome. Part time would be considered.

    We reserve the right to close early and call for interview immediately, therefore early applications are actively encouraged.

    United Learning

    Midhurst Rother College is part of United Learning, a large, and growing, group of schools aiming to offer a life changing education to children and young people across England.

    Our schools work as a team and achieve more by sharing than any single school could. Our subject specialists, our Group-wide intranet, our own curriculum and our online learning portal all help us share knowledge and resource, helping to simplify work processes and manage workloads for an improved work-life balance.

    As a Group, we can reward our staff better: with good career opportunities, better pay, benefits, and ultimately, the satisfaction of helping children to succeed. We invest in our staff wellbeing. Our academies each have at least eight INSET days per year (with three of those solely dedicated to planning), and an ongoing group-wide wellbeing programme. It's an ethos we call ‘the best in everyone’.
