We are seeking to appoint an outstanding practitioner and enthusiastic Teacher, with the ability to deliver Art and Design across all Key Stages. Ideally, you will have subject specialist knowledge in one or more of the following areas: Digital Art (Animation and/or Film), Printmaking, Ceramics, and/or Sculpture.

The Department 

The Art Department at Heathfield is flourishing. There is a long history of girls studying and succeeding, for examples within the areas of Fine Art, Textiles, Ceramics, and Illustration; many girls take GCSE, A-Level Art and Design and a large number choose to combine these qualifications with those in Photography, and History of Art, which are also popular choices. Several girls go on to Foundation Courses and Degree Course in Art-related subjects at many prestigious national and international art schools. The Art Department consists of a fine art room, a ceramics room with kiln, a textiles room with a designated pattern cutting area and sewing room, and a suite of computers.

Our Art Department has an excellent reputation both nationally and internationally, and seeks to appoint a candidate who is able to uphold and contribute to its extremely high standards. We require a team player with the vision and motivation to maximise student potential.

The School

Heathfield is an all girls’ boarding and day school, providing our girls with a first class education in beautiful surroundings, with a level of continuity of care and pastoral support, which we believe, is unrivalled. We offer opportunities that would otherwise be difficult for girls to access, with a wide weekend programme designed to stimulate our girls and to provide them with a release for both their physical and creative energies.

Set in 35 acres, the School is 50 minutes from London by train, 25 minutes from Heathrow and 20 minutes from Reading by car. The facilities and grounds are what one would expect from a School of this standing. 

One of the School's great strengths is the fact that, because of its size, (190 girls aged 11-18), we are able to concentrate on individual achievement. We have consistently high GCSE and ‘A’ level results and all girls go on to higher education, including Oxbridge. Because of our size, every girl is known to each other and to each member of staff.
