St George's is a welcoming school with a warm sense of community and visitors often comment on the perceptible supportive and cheerful atmosphere. We believe that a happy and successful school is one where all pupils have the opportunities to develop their strengths. The richness of opportunities within and outside the classroom are fundamental elements of the St George’s experience and this allows the girls to foster the confidence, independence and academic curiosity that lead to success. We aim to create an atmosphere in which both pupils and staff can achieve their own maximum potential in such a way that encourages learning, stimulates a love for, and long lasting interest in, their subject and achieves success in examinations.
We seek to appoint a part-time (0.3 - 0.5 FTE) Head of History of Art for September 2018 to bring inspirational teaching to History of Art in the Sixth Form curriculum.
The History of Art department has a dedicated classroom, located within the suite of studios devoted to the Art department. The department is well stocked with books, DVDs, digital media and slides. There are also comprehensive electronic resources for each aspect of the courses followed. The department has its own budget and staff responsibilities and the Head of History of Art is the sole teacher of the subject.
A competitive salary is offered, dependent on experience.
The closing date for applications is midday on Monday 19 February 2018.
