Teacher of Mathematics

Dollar Academy is seeking to recruit a permanent, full time, enthusiastic and suitably qualified teacher of Mathematics beginning in April or August 2024.

Dollar Academy has been a co-educational day and boarding school since its foundation in 1818.  Today, it provides an exceptional all-round education to around 1,350 pupils aged 5-18.  Our focus is on encouraging the individual talents and ambitions of every young person, in a positive and supportive environment that fosters the development of transferable skills, self-confidence and strong personal values.  A belief in developing the whole person is central to the Dollar ethos. We have recently been named as the Sunday Times Scottish Independent School of the Year 2024. 

We are looking for a capable and enthusiastic teacher with the ability to inspire and motivate pupils in Mathematics.  The person appointed will be expected to teach the full range of courses offered from Form I to Form V. There is no requirement to have previously taught the Form VI Advanced Higher courses but an ability and willingness to teach at this level would be preferred. An honours degree in Mathematics or a closely related subject is required.

The Academy has a rich co-curricular programme in which all members of staff are expected to participate. 

The salary for the post will be in accordance with the SNCT main grade scales with the generous Dollar enhancement in addition. It should be noted that the Chartered Teachers pay scale does not apply to teachers employed by the Academy.

Candidates should either be registered with the GTC Scotland, or eligible for registration.

Letters of application, accompanied by the completed application form (available on the school website www.dollaracademy.org.uk) should be sent to The Director of Human Resources, Dollar Academy, Dollar FK14 7DU (or by e-mail to recruitment@dollaracademy.org.uk) by noon on Friday 1st March 2024.  

All appointments are subject to receipt of a satisfactory PVG Scheme Record or Scheme Record Update from Disclosure Scotland.
