Lead Teacher of Art

We are looking for an individual with a genuine passion for teaching and leading Art at King Solomon Academy and a belief in the potential of every child.
KSA is a rare example of a genuinely all-through school, with one curriculum, culture, staff body and leadership team supporting our pupils’ journey from nursery to university.

KSA is a pioneering school looking to hire exceptional people. This is a unique opportunity for an ambitious and high-performing teacher and leader who is committed to pushing themselves further and achieving amazing things with and for their pupils. We believe in high expectations and a sense of collaborative and positive enthusiasm which brings out the best in our team. Through weekly coaching and time allocated to professional development we can help our teachers excel in creating a successful environment for our pupils.

As a growing school, we are now recruiting for an enthusiastic and talented Art teacher to join our small and passionate team of teachers. This is an exciting role in an exceptional school. This role carries with it the responsibility for the development of the academy’s Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 Art curriculum and teaching. As an all-through school, there is the opportunity to personally shape the art provision, while being supported by the previous Art leader, who is now Assistant Principal. With three Art galleries beside the school and a central London location, there is a real opportunity for Art enrichment and inspiration.

KSA is a pioneering school looking to hire exceptional people. In this role you will:

  • Become part of a team of like-minded individuals
  • Benefit from expert teacher development so that you make rapid progress in your practice
  • Be responsible for ground-breaking educational outcomes for pupils from an economically deprived background
  • Have the opportunity to take ownership of the Art curriculum
  • Experience a range of development opportunities as part of the Ark network.

King Solomon Academy is a place where teachers learn how to improve their teaching, constantly striving to be the best they can be. Each teacher has a coach who supports their teaching with frequent observations and action steps. Our teachers rapidly progress into being exceptional classroom practitioners. Our school is one which is transformational for staff and pupils alike.
