Artist in Residence
Full time, fixed term, August 2018-July 2019
St Mary’s is a leader in the field of girls’ independent boarding education. It has over 350 girls aged 11-18, including 100+ girls in the Sixth Form. Almost all of the girls go on to university, several each year to Oxbridge, to read a wide variety of subjects, and results in public examinations are consistently excellent. As well as innovative teaching, learning and scholarship, St Mary’s offers outstanding pastoral care and a vibrant, warm community.
We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, highly motivated and skilled person who has excellent communication skills to fulfill the role of Artist in Residence. The successful candidate will continue their own studio practice and assist in the Art Department, with a mixture of extracurricular and technician responsibilities, in addition to undertaking some boarding duties (if choosing to live on site). The position would suit an enthusiastic, committed and forward looking graduate who would be keen to contribute to all aspects of life in a boarding school and who might, in the longer term, be considering a career in teaching.
St Mary’s is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of pupils. Due to the nature of the work involved, the successful applicant will be required to undertake an Enhanced DBS check.
