 ART (Maternity cover)

The Royal School is seeking an innovative Teacher to join the Art Department from January 2018 in this heavily oversubscribed free school. Art and Design is a popular subject across the school and is currently oversubscribed at GCSE, the uptake at A Level is also impressive. The ability to teach a wide range of abilities from ages 11-18 is therefore essential as well as the ability and enthusiasm to teach across the Art disciplines with a flair and passion for the subject is crucial as well as flexibility within the department.

Are you the person to stretch, challenge, support and inspire our students in and outside of the classroom?

The Art Department strives for the highest standards of learning and teaching which is evident in the impressive KS4 and KS5 results which last year exceeded national averages. Our students participate in a balanced, practical-driven KS3 programme before choosing GCSE options where Art, Craft and Design is the course on offer. Students opt for many of our Art based extended day activities, which range from traditional Art club, Mural painting, 3D modelling club and at GCSE and A Level many students choose to follow extra-curricular Art.

The Royal School is at an exciting time of development. The new free school is an all-through (Reception to Y13) ‘independent’ school without day fees whilst still providing excellent boarding for 130 pupils at affordable fees. Alongside the growth in pupil numbers, there will be an expansion in the curriculum, enrichment activities and improved facilities, enabling us to extend and enhance still further the range of opportunities for all our young people. 

The Royal School has achieved excellent academic results throughout its history and has an outstanding reputation for nurturing and developing confident, well-disciplined and successful individuals who progress successfully to the next stage of their life and career. We relish this next phase in its existence which enables us to review and build on our current success in preparing our young people for a rapidly evolving world. We hope that you will share in this passion for a broader educational opportunity.
