Manchester Islamic Grammar School for Girls is an independent all girls 11 – 16 secondary school located in the Fielden Campus, West Didsbury, Manchester, M20 2PQ. West Didsbury is an affluent suburb of South Manchester and is perfectly located within easy access of the bus and tram routes to Manchester city centre. It is a vibrant area, balancing a cosmopolitan yet village atmosphere.

We are a relatively small school of approximately 250 students, and alongside our partner schools, KD Grammar School for Boys and Manchester Muslim Preparatory School, form part of the highly successful Manchester Islamic Educational Trust, founded in 1991. We have been rated outstanding at our last three Ofsted inspections.

Our mission is to prepare, engage and enthuse our students by helping them to identify their talents and build on their strengths. We have a fully enriched SMSC programme where students can demonstrate their skills beyond the classroom to become responsible adults, making valuable contributions to their own and the wider community. As a Muslim school, faith is at the heart of everything we do and is paramount to the ethos of the school.

Mathematics is taught in small groups of students who are respectful, responsive and eager to learn. We follow the National Curriculum in all subjects and the Edexcel syllabus for GCSE Maths. Higher achieving students have the option of taking an additional GCSE in Further Maths.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, committed and highly motivated teacher with the ability to deliver a high quality education that inspires amongst students a love of learning and a determination to achieve their very highest potential.

You will have:

  • A degree level qualification in Mathematics or a related field
  • A recognised teaching qualification e.g. PGCE with QTS and preferably experience teaching in UK schools
  • The right to work in the UK
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • A commitment to supporting the ethos of the school in all respects

Please see attached job description and person specification for full details.

We follow the Manchester City Council calendar for term dates and school closures.

  • The last five working days of Ramadhan
  • Two days at Eid – al – Fitr
  • One day for the Day of Arafat
  • Two days at Eid – ul – Adha

Safeguarding Recruitment Statement:

We are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff and volunteers to share the same commitment. The successful candidate must be willing to undergo an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), including checks with past employers.

Please note that new guidance in Keeping Children Safe in Education 2022 requires us to also carry out an online search as part of our due diligence on shortlisted candidates. This is to enable us to identify any incidents or issues which have happened and are publicly available online which we might want to explore at interview. Once shortlisting has taken place, this search will be carried out for all candidates who confirm they will attend an interview. 

All applicants must be permitted to work in the UK and hold a relevant Passport / work permit where necessary. If you have lived or worked outside of the UK in the last 5 years, the Trust will also require additional information and a Certificate of Good Conduct /Police Clearance from the country abroad you worked/ stayed at, in order to comply with safer recruitment requirements.

This post will be exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. The amendments to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 [exceptions] Order 1975 provides that when applying for certain jobs and activities certain convictions and cautions are considered protected. This means that they do not need to be disclosed to employers and, if they are disclosed, employers cannot take them into account. Guidance about whether a conviction or caution should be disclosed can be found in ‘Changes to the Criminal Records System November 2020.docx Page 2’ on the Ministry of Justice Website and the websites of charities NACRO and UNLOCK.

At the shortlisting stage candidates will be required to complete a self- declaration form regarding their criminal record (unless ‘protected’) and will also be required to submit any information that would make them unsuitable to work with children. Any such information will be treated in strictest confidence and used only in consideration of the suitability of the post. Criminal convictions will not automatically exclude you from being considered unless they fall within the threshold of being relevant and unsuitability, and will be considered on a case by case basis or as defined by the Department for Education.    

It is an offence to apply for a post engaging in regulated activity relevant to children if you are barred from working with children. We retain the right to close the advert before the listed closing date based on application volumes. Please note we will only contact shortlisted applicants.
