We have an exciting opportunity to lead a thriving, well-resourced and forward focused Product Design and Technology Department at one of the country’s leading girls’ schools.
As the only all-girls school in the west of London to offer Product Design and Technology at A-Level, Putney High School is a leading exponent and innovator attracting numerous external candidates for Design Scholarships every year.
You will play a key role in continuing to drive the department forward at a time of significant change and evolution. Working with a passionate and experienced team, you will lead, teach and promote Product Design and Technology throughout the senior school to A-Level and Oxbridge level.
If you can inspire our talented girls to become enthusiastic and skilled product designers, who are unafraid to take risks and experiment with design solutions and outcomes that go beyond stereotyped practices, we would be delighted to hear from you.
