Richard Challoner SchoolKingston upon Thames

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for you to join a school where you will be valued and appreciated by pupils, colleagues and parents alike; where our CPD programme has been recognised as exceptional and the caring and supportive environment means that staff turnover is incredibly low.

Students’ behaviour is impeccable, they treat each other and staff with real respect, have a genuine enjoyment of school and enjoy their learning.  Our students and staff are proud of their school and work hard to be the best that they can be. 

Richard Challoner is a very successful school with an excellent reputation, is consistently oversubscribed, and has a genuinely comprehensive intake. There are many opportunities for staff and pupil involvement in whole school fun, through many house activities, in sports, art, drama and music in particular.  

We passionately believe that Art enriches and enhances the lives of young people. The successful candidate should have skill, confidence and proficiency in a number of mediums and knowledge of a range of different Artists, designers and craftspeople. They should also be able to bring new ideas to the department and help develop schemes of work and different ways of working. 

The department offers a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities and a desire to be involved with this is extremely important.    Collaboration, developing resources and sharing ideas is an essential quality.

The appointed teacher will support the ethos of the school and help maintain the core values of integrity, respect and humility.  

Richard Challoner is an outstanding Catholic school for boys aged 11-18, with a thriving mixed Sixth Form; it is designated a Leading Edge School and has World Class status.  Students at the school make excellent progress (top 10% of schools for KS2-4 progress and attainment) and demonstrate excellent behaviour for learning.  We strive for everyday excellence in all that we do.
