This is a rare and exciting opportunity to work in a selective independent school in rural Leicestershire. Following over thirty years of outstanding service, the current post holder is retiring and we are seeking an innovative and dynamic individual to lead this crucial area of school life.
There is a strong and long standing tradition of outstanding success within our Art department at GCSE, A level and beyond. All students study Art in years 6-8, it is a popular option in Year 9 and GCSE and plays an invaluable role as part of our A level provision.
The quality of education at the Dixie has been judged as excellent by the Independent Schools Inspectorate and all staff play their part in our vibrant community - not least through contribution to an extensive co-curricular programme and as part of a dynamic pastoral team.
With fantastic new facilities at the Junior School, superb GCSE and A-level results and an ambitious strategic development plan, which includes provision for extensive new Art facilities, this is an excellent opportunity for an outstanding individual with drive, enthusiasm and strong leadership skills to steer the next phase of Art at the Dixie.
Applicants should complete the Dixie Application Form and send a covering letter to Richard Lynn, Headmaster (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than midday on Tuesday 21 January 2020.
Interviews will be held on Tuesday 28 January.
