Art Teacher (9 month maternity cover) Required for February 2022 (or sooner)

Holme Grange SchoolWokingham

Holme Grange is a successful, traditional independent school with a real soul. We aim to stimulate intellectual curiosity and encourage pupils to embrace challenge. We have waiting lists in most year groups. We have high expectations, and set high standards for ourselves and our pupils. Pastoral care is the responsibility of every member of staff and is one of the many strengths of our school.

Having very successfully extended our excellent provision to teach to GCSE, back in 2015, the School is thriving and Eaton Grange, the name given to our secondary section, currently operates a four-form entry from Year 7.

We have innovative, reflective and forward-thinking staff with an understanding of how children learn, and are looking for someone to join us who is willing to contribute ideas and enthusiasm, to motivate and inspire and to strive to provide the finest education, care and opportunity for our pupils.

The successful applicant will be an exemplary practitioner with excellent interpersonal and team working skills. If you are dedicated and energetic, we offer a delightful working environment which is well resourced. Professional development opportunities are available and encouraged.

This role would cover teaching Art to Years 3-4 (with possibly sharing some Y10-11 GCSE Art classes) an added advantage would be the ability to teach Textiles to Years 6-8 (including sewing machine projects for Years 7-8).

The position would appeal equally to a new qualified teacher or an experienced professional seeking a new challenge.

A willingness to play a full part in the extra-curricular and pastoral life of our happy and vibrant school is essential. Holme Grange has its own salary scale.

Holme Grange is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. Applicants for all jobs will undergo appropriate child-protection screening including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check to enhanced level.  A Prohibition Check is also carried out. Holme Grange School is an equal opportunities employer. 

Full details and application form available at or by telephoning 0118 978 1566.  Applications will only be accepted by completion of an application form which should be submitted with a hand- written letter of application to the Headteacher – Mrs C Robinson.

Closing date for applications: December 2021.               Interviews: date to be confirmed.
