We are seeking an enthusiastic and talented Art teacher who is experienced at teaching Art up to and including GCSE and A Level and seeking their first move post NQT. The school is equally happy to receive applications from NQTs or other suitably qualified applicants.
The Art Department here at King Edward’s is very successful and students have the option to take Art at GCSE, Graphics and Art at KS3 and Art, Photography and Media Studies at A Level. The Department is involved in a wide range of community activities and host an annual Art and Photography Exhibition to show case students work. Finally, the ability to offer either photography or media studies at GCSE or A Level would be useful.
Although selective and academic in our focus the School’s ethos is centred on the development of the whole child. We are exceptionally fortunate that our committed staff give of their time generously in numerous different ways to share or pursue a passion with our pupils. We have a flourishing debating society; creative writing groups; music; drama and sport are all strong. We are also unusual for a state school in having a large and active CCF who also help to run our Duke of Edinburgh programme. The desire to share a passion or simply get involved in the extra-curricular life of the school will be crucial.
Applications should be made on the school’s application form which can be downloaded from www.kevigs.org and should also include a covering letter and CV. Please return to firstname.lastname@example.org The deadline for applications is Monday 23rd April. Interviews will be held in the same week although the school reserves the right to bring this date forward if it has a suitable field.
