We encourage you to read our website very carefully and familiarise yourself with our 2014 Ofsted report, our prospectus, candidate information pack and application form for the post. What will be clear to you is that you are applying to an extremely successful school and one with a decidedly clear ethos of achievement. We moved, in November 2012, into a brand new £80 million school. The school became an Academy in September 2013 and was recognised by the Department for Education as a Teaching School in 2015. The government’s analysis of examination results has placed the school’s performance in the top 5% of schools nationally over the last decade. The school is committed to developing its teachers and to fostering the development of outstanding teaching. The school is a personalised community which is committed to creating careers for people. It is experienced in supporting those at the beginnings of their career, but it but it has had equal success in fostering the careers of colleagues who have considerable experience and who join us having taught in other schools. 


Teachers provide outstanding Art teaching. The successful applicant will lead a thriving department of enthusiastic and committed colleagues. There are generous resources and all Art teachers have their own large and stunningly equipped workshops which benefit from state of the art machinery and tools. The environment is dynamic and has its own library and design gallery. Ten percent of all our students are admitted on the basis of their aptitude in art. These students have access to additional specialist teaching (part of our extra-curricula offering) and as a result of outstanding teaching, a large proportion of our leavers each year go on to study at the leading conservatories and art colleges or to study Art History. At GCSE, students study Art in vertical teaching groups comprising of students in Years 9, 10 and 11. This is common practice across all GCSE option subjects and it is enormously successful.   

An application form that should be completed electronically is available from the school’s website: http://www.hollandparkschool.co.uk/vacancies/train-and-teach-with-us. Early application is encouraged as we will seek to interview and appoint on receipt. The closing date for applications is Monday 28th January 2019.

We are hosting an open house event for prospective teachers on Saturday 19th January 2019 beginning at 10.00. The event is aimed to provide an insight into this Ofsted outstanding and DfE recognised teaching school and supply details of how to pursue opportunities with the school. You are warmly encouraged to visit our website for details and to register your indication to attend.
