Teacher of Drama

Churchill Community CollegeNorth Tyneside

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, highly motivated and inspirational teacher of Drama.

We are expanding our successful and engaging Performing Arts department with the addition of a full time drama specialist. From September, we will be adding drama lessons to the curriculum for years 7, 8 and 9, helping our students build resilience, compassion, humour and dedication to the arts. These sessions will also help develop oracy skills such as communication and appropriate language usage, recognising that these are areas that need to be learned, just like any other social skills. Students can then progress to study performing arts at Key Stage 4, with either a dance or drama pathway as an option.

We currently have a large hall with staging and a range of lighting and sound equipment including head microphones.  To provide suitable teaching space, we are creating a specialised drama/dance studio for September, which will ultimately include lighting rigs, full blackbox effect and specialised dance flooring.

Drama staff will work closely with music and dance specialists within the department to provide a balanced performing arts curriculum, including an abundance of opportunities for extracurricular endeavours, including musical theatre performances and department showcases.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our newly appointed Headteacher to work alongside a highly supportive governing body, and an incredible group of staff who will always go the extra mile for our students.
