Teacher of Maths Job Description 

Carlton Mills is a large secondary school of over 1600 students situated close to the centre of Bradford. It has been on a remarkable improvement journey over recent years, after going into Special Measures in 2014 under high-profile circumstances and being dubbed ‘The Most Broken School in the Country’. From this low point it underwent rapid improvement, attaining an ‘Outstanding’ rating from Ofsted less than two years after coming out of Special Measures. This success was followed up by accreditation as a World Class School in 2018, then being named ‘Secondary School of The Year’ in the 2019 Pearson/BBC National Teaching Awards. Despite this considerable success, the school still retains its innovative edge with several exciting initiatives being introduced over recent years, with many more to come.


Like all schools in the Trust, Carlton Mills is a pleasant place to work with friendly, supportive, and helpful staff. Class sizes are small, averaging just 16 across all year groups in Maths and English, with slightly higher numbers in other subjects. Student behaviour and conduct is excellent, promoted and maintained by a large team of non-teaching Heads of Year. In line with Trust priorities, meetings, bureaucracy, and paperwork are kept to the absolute minimum, with staff regularly recognised and rewarded for their contribution to the school.


Maths is very well resourced at Carlton Mills, reflecting the subjects’ importance to school results and the life chances of students. Staff are supported with the best resources and training within and out of school to ensure that they are able to achieve the highest standards. There are many opportunities for progression within the department to ensure that careers can be developed and staff are suitably rewarded for their hard work.


We are seeking to appoint an ambitious, innovative, and highly skilled Maths teacher. The successful applicant will report directly to the Director of Maths Faculty and it is expected they will support the strategic direction and development of the faculty across all areas and exam courses.


We welcome visits to the school; to arrange a convenient time please contact Anita Riedel, Recruitment Manager.
