For the coming school year, beginning August 2022, we are seeking to appoint an exceptional teacher of Secondary art, with an initial focus on Key Stage 3 (middle school years). Art is a very popular and successful subject within the school and whoever is appointed will have the opportunity to work to develop art at LANNA from this already very positive position, whilst also having the freedom to innovate and teach with a wide variety of mediums. There is also the possibility to host/participate in exhibitions outside of the school, as has already happened several times.
The successful candidate will teach art at KS3, initially, working alongside an experienced senior teacher of art who will also be teaching some KS3 classes, as well as art at IGCSE and A Level. They will be responsible for teaching Secondary level art at Key Stage 3 (with a shared full-time art assistant) and will be responsible for ongoing planning, development and successful delivery of these courses, in tandem with the current art teacher - a team player is crucial to this role!
This role is somewhat unusual in seeking a teacher who can also take on some KS3 English (ESL level) classes, supporting the development of English language amongst some of our students who are currently least proficient and require some additional support to help them to progress. It is important that the successful candidate has the necessary skills and also a desire to develop English skills in these young people, and so help facilitate success across the whole curriculum.
The school promotes high standards in all areas, not just academics. As such, you will also be expected to take a full and active role in the life of the school; not only within your classroom and your own subject area. See the co-curricular section of our website for details of some of the many school activities that take place, and that you would be expected to volunteer to be involved with in some ways.
We are fully committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, therefore all applicants must be willing to undergo rigorous child protection screening, including checks with past employers and criminal background checks. These checks are always made.
