Harrow High School is a unique, ambitious and exciting school in North West London, committed to providing an excellent education for the dynamic and diverse community it serves.

We are looking to appoint an ambitious, enthusiastic and highly motivated Drama teacher to lead the Performing Arts Department up to KS4 and who consistently delivers good and outstanding lessons. Having the ability to teach Music to KS3 would also be highly desirable. 

We have exceptionally high expectations of all our learners in all that they do and believe that disadvantage or low prior attainment should not act as a barrier to success. We are committed to our ‘4 excellences’ which are at the heart of everything we do and every conversation we have. 

These are;

  • Excellent Learning & Progress - Challenge and engagement, meeting and exceeding targets
  • Excellent Aspirations - Quality progression, passion for learning
  • Excellent Behaviour, Safety and Care for each other - Respectful challenge, showing empathy
  • Excellent Communication - Understanding each other, clarity of purpose

As a result of our commitment to these beliefs, the school is continually improving and as a result, Progress 8 was +0.47 for the year 2017 – 2018. The Sixth Form is also incredibly successful and this year we achieved an ALPS grade of 2 (top 10% nationally) for A levels. 

These values also ensure we are committed to a constant programme of teacher development and teacher-led research and we offer a comprehensive and exciting programme of CPD which ensures that all our staff are able to make rapid progress in their careers. Some of this programme is offered in conjunction with the Harrow Collegiate Teaching School Alliance which you can find at www.hctsa.org

The school is committed to promoting and safe-guarding the welfare of children and young people.  The successful candidate will be subject to an enhanced DBS check and satisfactory references.

Closing date: 12 midday on Monday 20th May 2019.
