Bury Grammar School aims to be a leading academic institution and the school of first choice for pupils, parents and staff in the area.
We are seeking to appoint, from 1st September 2021, an inspiring, committed and enthusiastic Teacher of Art to join an outward-looking and high achieving Creative and Performing Arts Faculty. The successful candidate will be an outstanding teacher, passionate about their subject, and must be willing to contribute to the wider life of the school.
The Art Department
The Art Department has an excellent set of facilities that includes a specialist ceramic studio, two print presses, an exposure unit as well as ICT equipment and DSLR cameras all set in beautiful open, light and spacious studios across both sites. Pupils are inspired and challenged during their lessons, whilst equipping them with the knowledge and skills to participate in, experiment with, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. Pupils are taught to think creatively and critically by investigating and evaluating a wide range of creative outcomes.
The Creative and Performing Arts Faculty at Bury Grammar School is a thriving team of twelve members of staff. We are committed to enabling our students to benefit from the very best standards of teaching and are proud of our departmental culture of collaboration. The departments in the faculty are Art and Design, Drama, Music, Design and Technology and Food. We provide a wide range of opportunities within the faculty to encourage our students to maximise their potential and thus promoting a sense of challenge, curiosity and risk-taking in an inspirational and supportive environment. The Faculty has a strong enrichment programme and contributes an enormous and valuable amount to the wider life of the school with pupils across the schools spending much of their extra-curricular time within these departments. We organise many educational visits to art galleries, the theatre and music recitals, as well as students taking part in external competitions. We host an annual Art Exhibition and the School Production is one of the highlights of the school year attracting sellout performances.
