Holme Grange is a successful, traditional Independent School with waiting lists in most year groups. We are at an exciting stage of our development, with our school having recently extended our excellent provision up to GCSE at Year 11. We admitted our first Y9 pupils in September 2015 and have recently completed a capital development programme which includes a 300 seat theatre - an outstanding resource which incorporates our music and drama teaching facilities. We have innovative, forward thinking staff with an understanding of how children learn. We are looking for someone to join us, who is willing to contribute and adapt to our changing and developing school. 

We are seeking to employ an inspirational, dynamic and enthusiastic Director of Drama who is able to lead the department with excellence, energy and creativity and to teach primarily drama across the School and English up to GCSE level.

Our teachers set high standards of themselves and their pupils. If you are dedicated and energetic we offer a delightful working environment which is well resourced.
