An opportunity has arisen at Wandsworth Hospital and Home Tuition Service (HHTS) for a suitably qualified and experienced Maths Teacher to join our team in delivering high quality teaching across all sectors of our ‘Outstanding’ provision.  

We require an enthusiastic and dynamic teacher who would like to broaden their experience in working with vulnerable young people in a Hospital Schools/medical PRU and within the community. 

Our Service

HHTS is comprised of the St George’s Hospital classroom and three classrooms within the CAMHS Campus at Springfield University Hospital; Tooting- Aquarius Acute Adolescent Psychiatric Unit, Wisteria Adolescent Eating Disorders Unit and Corner House National Deaf Unit.  The Service also supports children with medical needs and mental health issues in their homes, mainstream schools, the local community and our Compass Programme.

Ofsted rated HHTS as ‘Outstanding’ once again in 2023.   We are committed to maximising access to education for children and young people who have medical needs or mental health issues that result in inpatient admission or recurring absences from school.

About the Role

Under the guidance of the senior leadership team, you will be required to organise, deliver and evaluate learning for children and young people who are inpatients in either hospital, or are too unwell to attend school. Our students present with a range of educational needs and abilities, including those with AEN and very high levels of achievement. The range of children require teachers with excellent subject knowledge and a love of their subject. This role incorporates a balance of class teaching in the hospital classrooms and 1:1 teaching in the community. The role is primarily as a Maths teacher however an ability and interest in teaching some Science to small groups or 1:1 would be beneficial.

Our well-resourced provision is staffed with highly qualified and innovative teachers and support staff, and you will work in partnership with the multidisciplinary team within the hospital. You must be willing to work flexibly in a challenging yet rewarding, supportive and creative environment.

We offer:

  • The opportunity to work in a unique, dynamic, successful and forward-facing service; supported by talented committed and conscientious colleagues.
  • High levels of support, supervision and personalised continued professional development while ensuring teachers have professional autonomy in their role.
  • An excellent environment in which to further develop your skills with innovative opportunities for professional development
  • We welcome applications from teachers who have the following:
  • a proven ability to teach Mathematics, including supporting students at A Level
  • experience of successful outcomes for pupils with SEN and high achieving students
  • an outstanding teaching record 
  • the ability to plan and deliver outstanding teaching and learning for both individuals and small groups with high quality outcomes for all pupils
  • the ability to liaise effectively with stakeholders (schools, health, other agencies and parents)
  • an ability to teach one or all of three Sciences as a second subject would be an additional benefit

Experience of working with students with mental health needs would be of added benefit.
