Art & Graphics Teacher

Canbury SchoolKingston upon Thames

Art & Graphics Teacher

We are looking for a committed teacher who is an energetic and enthusiastic Art, Photography and Graphics practitioner. With maximum class sizes of fifteen students, we are looking for someone who has experience in teaching Art to GCSE and BTEC level 3 and ideally Photography to GCSE but most importantly he/she should be flexible, innovative, friendly and enthusiastic about his/her subject.

Working as part of a team is vital and he/she should be able to work constructively within a cohesive and very busy school where the children matter. It is essential that the person appointed enjoys working with young people.

The successful candidate should be ready to contribute to the range of tasks associated with a busy school and be willing to go the extra mile for our students.

The school is well resourced and fully networked as well as wireless. Staff are required to ensure that all resources needed for teaching are made available in an electronic format accessible to students. Strong general ICT skills are therefore a requirement, though high levels of technical ability in ICT are not. ICT training and support are readily available to all colleagues.

Creative Arts at Canbury School:

Art, Craft and Design and Photography are GCSE options available to students at Canbury School. The students’ ability range is broad, and they are prepared for the AQA syllabus at GCSE. BTEC Art and Design Level 3 is on offer to our small sixth form cohort. Art and Graphics are each taught at Key Stage 3 for one hour a week. 

The department is well stocked with resources that includes a kiln, a set of sewing machines and DSLR cameras. With regards to ICT in the department there are two desktop Macbooks, six Macbook laptops, an ipad, a Smart IWB and a large format printer. 

The successful candidate will join a thriving and happy school where high standards are expected of staff as well as students in a lively and supportive atmosphere. The emphasis is on enjoyment of the Arts, presenting these areas of study as highly relevant and worthwhile in the modern world as well as enriching and fulfilling in themselves.
