We are looking to appoint an outstanding practitioner to lead our Senior School Art Department in furthering the culture of excellence that has been established since the College was founded in 2013.
The pursuit of Art at Brighton College is not only an activity worthy of great dedication in its own right, but also a vitally important vehicle to nurture the creativity, passion and individuality of each and every pupil. Artistic endeavour encourages Brighton children to be curious, courageous and original; in doing so, it enlivens the academic life of the College in a very special way.
The Art Department in the Senior School is characterised by a strong sense of collaboration and the restless pursuit of outstanding pupil progress. Its members strive to ensure that both the curriculum and its delivery offer a rich and diverse range of experiences to both improve and inspire our pupils. Our vision is to propel pupils of Art to rates of progress that are equal to those of the finest schools in the world. The Art Department is swiftly becoming a beacon of outstanding progress by creating and developing a culture of excellence in everything it does.
Applications are invited from first rate Art practitioners who hold a relevant degree, at least two years of teaching experience and a clear understanding of teaching at Key Stage 3, (I)GCSE and A level. We are looking for someone who blends creativity and rigour in the classroom, is highly committed and possesses excellent organisational and communication skills.
Many of our full-time teachers are also House Tutors. All members of the teaching staff are expected to provide extra-curricular activities and will also be required to contribute to the wider community life of Brighton College.
Brighton College offers a highly competitive tax free salary, end-of-service gratuity, free housing and annual flights for the family, medical insurance and free school places for children.
