Head of Art
Outer London Pay Scale plus TLR2B
(negotiable to match Inner London for the right candidate)
Required from Summer Term 2020/September 2020
Woodcote High School has long been a top choice for parents in the Coulsdon & Purley area of South London. We are located in a pleasant suburban setting on the borders of Surrey, Sutton and Croydon; the school has a rural feel but is officially in the Outer London salary band. Woodcote High is oversubscribed in every year group. Five years ago, we opened our Sixth Form and have quickly grown to capacity, so we are now in the process of looking to build a new Sixth Form.
Woodcote High is on a journey to outstanding and we are looking for potential teachers who have the same passion for excellence. Judged “good” by Ofsted in January 2015 in all areas and reaffirmed in March 2018, inspectors praised our students as “courteous, respectful and keen to talk about their achievements.”
This is an excellent opportunity to work with our highly motivated and innovative staff in this forward-looking and successful School and Department. We are particularly keen to hear from those that can teach A Level Photography; however, this is not a barrier to applying. In the summer 2019 results, 63% of Art GCSE students achieved a Grade 5 or above and All Art A Level, BTEC and Photography students achieved ALPs scores which were in line with the national benchmark.
• Do you want to work with aspiring and respectful students?
• Do you want to work with supportive parents?
• Do you want to work in a school that will focus on your continuing professional development?
• Do you want to work in a school that values your contribution and puts learning first?
Applications are welcome from both those currently in teaching or who have previously taught and looking to return to the profession. For the right candidate, we will salary match if already working in Inner London. Please visit our website and Twitter to learn more about our school.
Pre-application visits are welcomed and encouraged so please telephone the school or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to arrange an informal visit before you apply.
