 The Priory CofE School in Dorking is seeking to appoint an inspiring and visionary Head of Art and Textiles.

Art is currently delivered to students in KS3 and at GCSE, with Textiles being delivered to KS3. This post would provide the successful candidate with scope to develop the provision through to A level Art, and also to develop a Fashion course both at KS4 and KS5 in due course.

The Priory School is at an exciting place in its development of the KS3 curriculum and is still committed to providing a broad and balanced education for its 700 students. Candidates with a clear passion and vision for the delivery of Art and Textiles would be ideally suited to join us at this pivotal point in our school’s development.

The Priory School is a successful and happy 11-19 Church of England Voluntary Aided school with an exceptionally positive school culture. We are rightly proud of our ‘outstanding’ SIAMS judgement and our recent ‘good’ Ofsted judgement.  We have an excellent CPD programme for all and in-house provision for recently qualified teachers. While this post would not usually be suited to an NQT, colleagues at any stage in their career with potential and talent are most welcome to apply. We are keen to recruit and develop the right person to develop and deliver a truly inspirational education to our students.

At The Priory School, our Christian distinctiveness is embodied in our core values of Wisdom, Dignity, Hope and Community and our mission is ‘Educating for Life in All its Fullness’. Our school is the embodiment of a Church school for the community, and not a faith school for the faithful.
