An opportunity to join the team at one of the UK's leading boarding and day prep schools


We are seeking to appoint, ideally for September 2022 (or January 2023), an outstanding Head of Maths to lead teaching and development across the school. We are looking for an organised, able and well qualified mathematician, who is ready to embrace the opportunity to teach beyond the normal prep school level and committed to academic excellence for all pupils at Horris Hill.

The successful candidate will be enthusiastic about the opportunity to work with some very gifted young mathematicians, but also aware of the importance of building everyone’s confidence in this key subject area - willing to commit extra time to both stretch pupils at the top and reinforce confidence and progress to help those to whom maths does not come quite so readily. Expectations are high and the intellectual rewards are significant from working with a group of potentially high achievers.

Whilst your teaching is likely initially to be classes in the 7-13 age range, we will mould the role around the strengths and enthusiasms of the successful candidate. The successful candidate will bring enthusiasms for many other aspects of school life such as sports and extra-curricular provision, and will be willing to perform boarding duties and contribute fully to a busy full-time boarding school. For full-time staff this usually includes a commitment to teaching on Saturdays during term, in return for generous holidays.
