We are very popular, with over 800 year 6 parents choosing the school as their first or second preference in 2019.

Would you like to take up the lead of a great Drama and Theatre Studies Department? 

Ours is made up of a small team of teachers who consistently achieve good results at both KS4 and 5. All students study drama in Years 7 & 8, with a strong uptake for the key stage 3 Year 9 option and beyond into GCSE. You may already have experience of leading a team and will be an inspirational and enthusiastic teacher capable of teaching drama and theatre studies up to KS5. You will have the skills, ambition and vision to lead the department to sustain and build upon this success.

As a Teaching School, Highlands has a well-developed support and development programme for teaching staff.

Highlands School offers:

A high achieving and well motivated body of students

Excellent conditions in a modern building

CPD programmes to support and develop teachers

An innovative curriculum

An enthusiastic, creative and supportive staff

An excellent reputation (and is heavily oversubscribed)
