St Helena School is a highly-regarded 11-16 co-educational Academy, recognised as Good by Ofsted in 2014 and now on a journey to Outstanding. Located on 17 acres in historic Colchester, the school has a fine blend of traditional and modern facilities and opened a £2.5m new Science & Technology block in 2015, with new all-weather sports facilities added in March 2016.
We are seeking a talented, creative and dynamic Teacher of Art, with some additional teaching in the Performing Arts for which planning would be provided, to join our highly successful Arts Faculty from September 2017, to cover a Maternity Leave.
