Uppingham School seeks to appoint a first-rate teacher of Mathematics, or a graduate trainee, to join our excellent Mathematics department from September 2023.

As Teacher of Mathematics, you will provide a high standard of teaching across the school, ensuring the educational needs of our pupils are sufficiently met. In addition to this, you can expect further responsibilities outside of classroom teaching both within our co-curricular programme and as a tutor in one of the school’s fifteen boarding houses.

An excellent communicator, you will possess a strong, dynamic character, outlined by high personal and professional standards, along with well-developed pastoral instincts. You will demonstrate excellent subject knowledge, bolstering this with a good degree, as well as good class management skills and the ability to build an appropriate rapport with pupils.

This role could equally suit an experienced teacher, an Early Career Teacher (ECT) or a Mathematics graduate seeking to train and gain a teaching qualification whilst working. If appointed as a graduate trainee, you will benefit from a reduced teaching timetable and support to gain a PGCE.

Accommodation may be available.

In return, Uppingham School offers a vibrant, supportive and stimulating working environment. We also offer first class staff benefits and facilities, including an on-site gym, free staff lunches, subsidised healthcare and an excellent contributory pension scheme.
