The Role

Are you a strong teacher who strives for excellence for all? We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Drama teacher with the energy and commitment to teach pupils of all abilities up to, and including, GCSE. The successful candidate will also be able to offer Music as a second subject to Year 7 and possibly Year 8. As the only person in the Department, the post will hold HOD responsibilities and as such this will be reflected in the addition of a TLR point. 

This is an exciting opportunity to build a strong and effective Drama Department and to contribute to a growing Music Department.

An excellent induction programme is provided for new staff and NQTs.
