Exciting opportunity to lead a lively and thriving Art department that is committed to providing a creative and exciting education for pupils of all abilities.

Teaching across the 11-18 range through a variety of media and disciplines, including painting, drawing, printing, film and sculpture, you will engage pupils in an imaginative way through teaching Art, Craft and Design from historical and contemporary sources.

If you are an experienced teacher with excellent subject knowledge with the enthusiasm and ability to inspire, excite and motivate pupils and colleagues we would be delighted to hear from you.

Art at Oxford High School

Our aim at OHS is to promote the understanding and use of Art and Design as a visual language. The Art department is overseen by three artist teachers whose practices are rooted in illustration, fine art, theatre design and TV styling. We are all passionate about teaching Art, Craft And Design and engage in our own practice as a way of informing and inspiring our teaching.

The new building which is due to commence in August 2018 and open in September 2019 will offer a wonderful enhancement to the art facilities of the school. The new building will give Oxford High School a facility which will be the envy of almost all other schools in the county.
