“Art is not what you see but what you make others see.” - Degas

We know the difference that a great teacher can make to a child’s life. That’s why we need an artist who is passionate about their subject and can instil in others a love of this fascinating, potentially life-changing, subject.

Whether you’re an NQT or you have been teaching Art for decades, to be truly ‘great’ you deserve an environment in which pupils genuinely want to learn. An environment in which your colleagues are as geeky about your subject as you are. And, if you want to keep developing, you need the right professional development opportunities.

Barr Beacon School offers you this – and more.

We are a school where being a ‘geek’ is not a bad thing – in fact, it’s cool, for both pupils and staff. Our pupils are exceptionally well behaved: you really will spend your planning time on instilling a love of Art, not for controlling behaviour. And to top it all, we run a fully-funded Masters programme (delivered on our school site by the University of Worcester) and bespoke training packages, such as our revered Middle Leaders training, so you can advance quickly to the next stage of your career.

Whatever your level of experience in the classroom, it’s your passion for your subject that counts. We prize love of learning above all else. 

Parents love what we do. It’s why we’re so oversubscribed, with more than 4 times the amount of applications for every place we have. Teachers love working here too, which means pupils love their learning. 

We need a talented teacher of Art who has the passion to provide pupils with the best possible experience of this fascinating subject. Could it be you?

There’s a real buzz about our place which no amount of words can convey, so please come to see Barr Beacon School for yourself.
