MATHEMATICS TEACHER JOB SPECIFICATION

The Mathematics Department at Harrow International School Bangkok is part of the Mathematics and Computing Faculty and extremely well-resourced. All classrooms are fitted with a projector and most with an interactive whiteboard or visualiser. The aim of the department is to make mathematics accessible, enjoyable and stimulating, and to raise the attainment levels of all students. The school has a large number of high achieving mathematicians and the external examination results, which are invariably excellent, reflect this.

Courses and examination boards The following are currently offered:

  • IGCSE Mathematics (CIE)
  • IGCSE Additional Mathematics (CIE)
  • GCSE Statistics (Edexcel)
  • Level 2 Certificate Further Mathematics (AQA)
  • International A Level (IAL) Mathematics (Edexcel) – Pure 1-4, S1 and M1 or D1
  • International A Level (IAL) Further Mathematics (Edexcel) - F1, F2, M2, M3, S2 and S3

In Years 6 to 8, Mathematics is based on a modified English national curriculum that is designed to meet the needs of Harrow Bangkok students. The IGCSE Mathematics course starts for all students in Year 9.

GCSE Statistics is a popular option choice for Year 10 students.

Year 10 accelerated students (Sets 1 and 2) take the IGCSE Mathematics examination early. Set 1 study IGCSE Additional Mathematics in Year 11, whereas Set 2 study AQA Level 2 Certificate Further Mathematics as an additional subject.

Both Mathematics and Further Mathematics are extremely popular choices at A Level. Approximately 85% of the Sixth Form opt to study Mathematics, with around one third of them also studying Further Mathematics.
