Application Form 2. Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form A message from Nicole Chapman, Headteacher Dear prospective applicant. Appointment of Head of Maths Department / Head of Maths, Economics, ICT Faculty Thank you for requesting information about the post. Should you decide to apply and be successful you will be joining a school which, from your first visit, will strike you as vibrant, bursting with energy and enthusiasm, and above all a very happy school that celebrated its Centenary Year in 2007. You will also find it useful to visit the school website www.cchs.co.uk. CCHS is a school which has retained the traditional values of a grammar school whilst seizing opportunities for innovative practice in the education of able students. Our school vision “Developing the Leaders of Tomorrow” encapsulates our commitment to empowering our students in “The Pursuit of Excellence” whilst “Achieving Individual Potential” and making a “Contribution to the Local and Global Community”. Our school has been identified as outstanding in the last three Ofsted inspections. We are proud of the headlines from the most recent Ofsted report (October 2007) which state; “CCHS is outstanding and provides exceptional value for money” and “Students‟ personal development and achievement are outstanding because teaching is exceptional, curriculum and enrichment opportunities are excellent and, care, guidance and support are good.” However, we are not resting on our laurels and continue to review, evaluate and develop our practice to remain outstanding in everything we do. The quality of Teaching and Learning is of a prime importance in a school where all students aspire to the top GCSE and A‟ level grades and we constantly focus on improving the way our teachers teach and our students learn. We were awarded Investor in People status in 2007 and aim to develop integrated Continuous Professional Development practice which is creative and innovative and provides opportunities for all staff to develop their practice in their current positions as well as acquire new skills, to prepare them for promotion. A new pastoral structure has been established this year, providing Student Progress Managers responsible for care and guidance for each year group (previously each key stage) throughout the school. CCHS is a Specialist College in Technology with Science and Maths, Music with English, and Languages. This affords us a wide range of opportunities to work with a large number of primary and secondary schools, supporting their gifted and talented students in particular. We also work closely with higher education and businesses. 3 We are a team of teachers, leaders, governors, support staff and students who will be continuing to build on the firm foundations of academic success which is long standing at CCHS, whilst further developing the school on a broad range of fronts. In particular we are an International Baccalaureate world school. We have also reviewed our curriculum and this year reverted to a three year KS3 programme, including enrichment pathways and starting GCSE programmes of study as well as increasing cross curricular opportunities for our students. We have provided details about the current Senior Leadership Team, however roles and responsibilities will be regularly reviewed and adjustments negotiated to adapt to the needs of the school, changing demands and the strengths, experience and career aspirations of members of the team. We always seek to appoint a person with the skills, knowledge and experience to complement the team, above all we are looking for a committed individual with a genuine interest in providing the highest quality in every aspect of their role. Our students deserve the very best we can provide. We believe in the importance of a collaborative approach and a commitment to the team. Thank you for your interest. If you feel that Chelmsford County High School for Girls can provide the challenges and opportunities you are looking for then we would be delighted to hear from you. Nicole Chapman Headteacher 4 Head of Maths The Mathematics Department at Chelmsford County High School for Girls consists of 7 teachers working in a friendly and supportive team. We exchange resources and ideas, both formally and informally, while working in our shared working area. The department has an excellent track record of success and is willing to work hard to make the “best better”; the relationships between staff and students are of the highest quality. In January 2009, the department received a subject specific inspection from an Ofsted inspector. We are extremely proud that we achieved outstanding grades in all areas: teaching & learning, curriculum provision, achievement & standards, and leadership of the department. Although we were obviously pleased that our hard work and expertise have been recognised in this way we are always looking to develop, as detailed below. The team The current Head of Department, Mike Seager, has been in position since September 2003 and has recently been appointed as an Assistant Headteacher at the School. He is superbly supported by Derek Adams (Maths Outreach work and House Coordinator), Margaret Cousins (PSHE Coordinator and Student Progress Manager), Rosemary Jones (Maths IB lead teacher and NQT mentor), Marion Windeatt (Student Progress Manager), Jeremy Mitchell and Zubeyde Simms (NQT). We are generally a very experienced and well-qualified team, with the ability to teach across the whole age and ability range. This flexibility adds interest to our teaching and we enjoy sharing resources and teaching ideas. The facilities The department has the use of four teaching rooms in the main school building and one room in the Sixth Form Block, as well as other classrooms when required. These teaching rooms are well resourced, all including a desktop computer and an interactive whiteboard, and we also keep an extensive stock of resources for shared use. The courses In KS3 the students work on a programme taking them from level 6 in Year 7 to level 8 in Year 9. We use the Cambridge essentials texts in Year 7 and 8, and the students start to use their GCSE textbook in Year 9. At KS4, all students take the higher tier OCR GCSE course and we expect to follow the new OCR B specifications next year. Mathematics is very popular in the Sixth Form; at present we have approximately 100 students in Year 12 and 70 students in Year 13 taking Mathematics courses. At AS and A level we, again, follow the OCR specifications, using M1 and S1 modules as the options for all students. In our Further Maths group we cover the A Level syllabus in Year 12 and then Further Maths in Year 13, with M2, S2 and D1 as their options. In addition, we have taught the International Baccalaureate for the first time this year, with small groups taking Higher, Standard and Studies courses. 5 The results In the recent past, the School has had a policy of accelerating KS3 so that students started the GCSE course in Year 9; however, in 2010-11 Year 9 students will be working at KS3 and the huge majority of student will achieve level 7 or 8 on their final teacher assessments. Similarly, at GCSE, the great majority of pupils achieve at least an A grade and the majority of our students achieve at least a B grade at A level. We expect a number of our students to achieve the new A*. Both the GCSE and A level results show that the department “adds value” to the already impressive results. Extra-curricular We offer a „support clinic‟ opportunity for any student who needs help in Year 12 and Year 13. In addition, we also prepare students for the national Mathematics competitions; the Junior, Intermediate and Senior Mathematics Challenges, and the Maths Team Challenge. We also run Sixth Form enhancement masterclasses each year, to give the students a flavour of the diversity of mathematical topics away from the examination curriculum. When required, we offer addition lessons for Sixth Form students needing STEP papers or AEA for their university entrance. Every year a number of our most able mathematician go on to read the subject at top universities. Future developments The Mathematics Department is pivotal to the Technology College status of the School through the outreach work it undertakes and the development of ICT in our teaching. As previously mentioned, we have an interactive whiteboard in every classroom and use numerous resources to enhance our teaching. This is an area that we continually develop, along with assessment and teaching ideas. With the current changes to the KS3 programme of study, new GCSE courses, IB specifications and new developments in resources, this is an exciting period of development in Mathematics teaching. We are looking forward to appointing a new Head of Department, who can continue to drive the team forward. It is essential that the successful person will be an outstanding teacher who can lead the department to new challenges. For the appropriately experienced person, the Head of Faculty post is available and we would ask you to make clear in your application the post for which you would like to be considered. The role of Head of Faculty is relatively new to the School, following restructuring this year and involves the strategic management of the three departments working in collaboration: Mathematics, Economics and ICT. 6 Background regarding the School Students Chelmsford County High School is a great place to teach – our students are motivated, pleasant, courteous, well behaved and enormous fun! They like school, and enjoy learning. Achievement is high, and almost all go into Higher Education at the most competitive universities, including Oxbridge. The School Chelmsford County High School was founded in 1907 as one of the first girls' secondary schools in Essex. In an area where most other schools are all-ability comprehensives, it is a Foundation selective school. We admit 120 students in Year 7 and maintain that number in each year group. Nearly all students in Year 11 return for the Sixth Form, and some 20-30 students join the Lower Sixth from other schools. Entry at Year 7 is competitive, with the top 120 students of the 600 or so who apply to the School and elect to take the 11+ being admitted. The school draws its intake from a very wide geographical area, and a very large number of "feeder" primary schools, around 70 in any one year group! Entry into the Sixth Form is determined by a good performance at GCSE which suggests good potential in the subjects chosen for A Level. Almost all of our Sixth Form students proceed to degree courses at University. At present there are 872 students on roll with 270 in the Sixth Form. This is not a complacent school, despite its high standards and success. We are keen to review our practice, and ensure that classroom methodology reflects the latest thinking on teaching and learning. All staff have the opportunity to contribute to whole school planning for improvement through their subject and year teams as well as Focus Groups, each led by a member of the Senior Leadership Team. This is a very busy school which places a strong emphasis on extra-curricular activity. There is a fine tradition of musical performance, and many students play at least one instrument. There are many orchestras, choirs and ensembles. Drama is an important extra curricular activity, with clubs, and major school productions involving many students. Our sports teams are very successful, as are our individual sportswomen. Our students are lively and talented, as well as being academically able, and we try to provide plenty of opportunities for them. House activities include some distinctly less serious events, which nonetheless challenge student ingenuity and team-working skills to the full. In terms of resources and buildings, we have a fine mixture of "traditional", provided by the original main building, and "makeshift" (we have the usual assembly of mobile classrooms) together with some excellent modern facilities, including science laboratories. Specialist College status has funded a complete refurbishment of the Technology area and good computer provision, including 7 Interactive whiteboards. We have good Sixth Form facilities and a dance/drama studio, an all weather artificial pitch. A hard working fundraising committee of parents and governors has raised funds for much of this, and we have recently opened a state of the art Music Centre. Governors and parents are very supportive, and have, obviously, very high expectations of the school. We have a school community which is friendly and welcoming. We trust our students to behave well, and the atmosphere in the school reflects our high expectations of them in this respect. Staff The School has a teaching establishment of around 55 in full-time equivalent, consisting of 44 full-time staff, including the Head, and 18 part-time staff. In addition, French, German and Spanish Foreign Language Assistants are employed. There is a non-teaching establishment of 44, who support teaching and learning in various capacities. The school operates a no-smoking policy. 8 The Senior Leadership Team (SLT) The current structure consists of: • Headteacher – Mrs Nicole Chapman • Deputy Head: Curriculum, Exams and Assessment – Mr Julian Dutnall who has responsibility for developing the curriculum, exams and assessment, the international dimension, the timetable, staffing, and line manages a selection of curriculum areas. • Acting Assistant Head: Teaching & Learning and – Mr Mike Seager - who has responsibility for the quality of Teaching & Learning at KS3 and 4. and line manages a selection of curriculum areas.

Treat the children to a day out at Marsh Farm Country Park and Tropical Wings Butterfly and Bird Gardens in South Woodham Ferrers, simply relax and unwind on the Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation, or dine in one of our many fine restaurants. From a bustling town centre with excellent shopping and eating facilities to tranquil villages and unspoilt countryside, Chelmsford has the perfect combination of town and country, with a whole host of places to visit for young and old alike. The town today Chelmsford, County town of Essex, has good links with East Anglia and London and is convenient for Stansted Airport, the sea ports of Harwich and Felixstowe and the capital itself. Situated just 30 miles north east of London, Chelmsford is the perfect base. With excellent road, rail and air communications Chelmsford is well connected to the rest of the UK and Europe. The A12 road runs to the east of the town, meeting the M25 London Orbital near Brentwood. London‟s Liverpool Street rail station is just 35 minutes away. Despite redevelopment in the past 30 years, Chelmsford retains many glimpses of its past including the old buildings around the cathedral. Established Farmers‟ Markets and Continental Markets in the High Street bring something a little different to the town. History The name Chelmsford is Saxon in origin. The town is mentioned in the Census of 1086 as two settlements beside the River Cam – later joined by a bridge. In 1199 King John granted the right to hold a weekly market and by 1250 Chelmsford was a county town. The Blackwater and Chelmer Canal opened in 1797, linking the town to the coast, and the railway came in 1845.
