Rossall School is a thriving HMC boarding and day school with a broad international outlook and a stunning campus overlooking the sea.
We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and highly motivated Head of Drama. This is an exciting opportunity for an outstanding teacher to provide inspiration to pupils, to develop their confidence and skill in the performing arts and to contribute to the rich theatrical life of the school.
All members of the English and Drama Department contribute on a day-to-day basis with ideas for development of the subject, using and respecting each other’s areas of expertise.
The successful applicant will be able to teach Drama up to A Level standard in addition to some English. Knowledge of the International Baccalaureate would be preferable, though not essential.
Drama is a busy department which plays a significant role in the life of the School. Drama is taught across all Key Stages, with the option to study at both GCSE and A Level, following the Eduqas specifications. The Head of Drama will be responsible for all the GCSE and A Level teaching and is supported at Key Stage Three by two other members of the department, who teach the LAMDA syllabus across both Junior and Senior School.
Extracurricular drama is thriving and we currently stage a senior school musical or play and a middle school play. Recent productions include Les Miserables, Grease, We Will Rock You and Great Expectations. Alongside this, we run Drama clubs for Years 7-8 and Years 9-10 which culminate in performances in our smaller production venue, The Museum Theatre. Our largest in-house stage is the Big School Theatre. Excitingly, Rossall will be launching a new Performing Arts Centre in September 2018.
Subsidised accommodation is available on-site, if required.
