We educate students rather than simply train them to pass tests.  Take a look at our website to find out how we prepare children for a life of adventure:  

Job Summary:  A varied and fulfilling role that offers invaluable experience of working in our beautiful and vibrant Art department. Responsibilities include ceramic technician work including kiln management, some teaching of extra-curricular ceramics clubs, in class support across the disciplines. There is the potential to be active in the planning and delivery of ceramic specific teaching. The successful candidate may also choose to develop their own practice outside of lesson times and facilities will be available for this purpose. Responsibilities will also involve various boarding and school duties.

About Us:  Sidcot School is a thriving independent day and boarding school set in glorious countryside just 7 miles south of Bristol Airport. Our students experience a community where it is clear that independent thought is encouraged and curiosity is a way of life.  Great education starts with great teachers and our teachers want their students to have interesting lives; they want to give them the confidence and motivation to develop their talents, and the desire to put those talents to good use in the world.

About You:  An exciting opportunity for graduates in tune with our approach to education in search of gaining experience of living and working in a boarding and day school, perhaps prior to embarking on a PGCE course or taking up a teaching position.  The candidate will need to be technically confident in building, firing and glazing techniques and able to respond to the practical challenges that a busy ceramics department brings. The candidate should be a proactive person who will enjoy sharing their own creative experience with our students.
