The College is looking for an artist and teacher who can communicate his or her own skills and knowledge, inspiring pupils to fulfill their potential as artists. He or she will also have the organisational and leadership skills required to manage a busy department and ensure the curriculum is delivered to a consistently high level. The Director of Art and Photography is directly responsible to the Deputy Head (Academic) for the delivery of the curriculum and examination results; and to the Senior Management Team for the assessment of scholarship applicants and the wider impact of Art in the College. There is a strong tradition of having pupils work on display throughout the school, and the Director will often be consulted about matters of décor, and design for College publications.

Candidates should complete an online application which is available at by midday on Friday 25th January 2019, though applications will be considered on a rolling basis and early application is therefore encouraged. This should be submitted together with a CV and covering letter of application addressed to the Head Master. Any enquiries about the application procedure should be emailed to or by calling the HR Department on 01273 704386.

It is anticipated that interviews will take place on Thursday 31 January 2019, though we reserve the right to interview candidates in advance of this time. Candidates invited to interview will be asked to teach an observed lesson as part of the process. Further information on the observed lesson will be provided in advance of interview.

Brighton College is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children; the successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced disclosure through the DBS.
