Talbot Heath School is looking to recruit a creative, dynamic and innovative Head of Design to lead the next exciting phase of development at Talbot Heath.

The school was founded over 130 years ago with the aim of being liberal, progressive and pioneering; those aims continue in the School’s vision for the future.  To support this, the school has designed an innovative STEAM Hub, an interdisciplinary learning space that will incorporate the latest technologies to support learning; augmented  reality, holographic screens, laser and 3D printing will be available to students from KS1 to KS5. The spaces will be flexible, and are designed to allow ambitious and innovative cross curricular working.

The successful candidate will lead and oversee the design aspects of our inter-disciplinary curriculum, from Key stage 1 through to Key Stage 5, working closely with other faculty and inter-disciplinary leaders to create stimulating and challenging curriculum activities that span disciplines. There are already numerous interdisciplinary curriculum strands embedded across the school and we are already in collaboration with local universities and the wider community in order to realise our vision.
