Head of Performing Arts and Second in Foundation   Faculty 

Teachers Pay Scale plus TLR £7,853

Performing   Arts at The Queen Katherine school is a core component of our curriculum   offer. At a time when schools are   reducing the opportunities for students to develop their creativity and   ability to express themselves, we have protected and invested in Dance, Drama   and Music. Our facilities are   exceptional with a purpose-built music suite with many practice rooms, a   dance studio and two bespoke drama studios. 

We seek to   appoint a creative and dynamic individual to lead our Performing Arts Department and assist  the Head of Foundation Faculty. 

The successful applicant will be   responsible for maintaining and developing the high profile that Performing   Arts currently enjoys within school and the local community. This role also   involves responsibility for assisting the Head of Foundation Faculty in   monitoring and improving the quality of teaching and learning, assessment and   feedback.

Education to degree level with QTS status is essential, as is recent experience of leading, or assisting with leading a department. This job requires an up to date knowledge and understanding of the curriculum and assessment, reporting and recording processes relating to performing arts, plus a clear understanding of the elements of outstanding teaching and learning. 

This is a fantastic opportunity to lead a department dedicated to supporting students to realise their creative potential in performing arts. If you have what it takes we would love to hear from you. 

The school   is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and young people and   expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful   candidate will be required to undertake an enhanced disclosure via the   Disclosure & Barring Services (DBS).
