Drama Teacher

Pocklington SchoolYork

An enthusiastic and well-qualified classroom practitioner, with a willingness to contribute to wider school life, is required to join this forward-thinking department to teach Drama from ages 9 to 14.  

12 miles to the East of York we offer a unique working environment based within a friendly market town, but close to major cities and heritage coastlines. Our successful co-educational day and boarding school is thriving, and we wish to appoint a  part time Drama Teacher to cover maternity leave who will motivate and stretch all pupils, whilst allowing every child to achieve to the best of their ability.   

A new working week  will be implemented from September 2021 which includes the cessation of Saturday morning academic lessons. In addition to the substantial academic benefits, this evolution aims to improve co-curricular opportunities, sporting options, boarding provision and pastoral care via a 5-day academic week.

The post is equally suitable for someone with experience or new to the profession and the working days will be Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
