(Temporary for one term)
Inner London Payscale
We require for September 2017 at this very successful mixed, multi-ethnic 11-19 comprehensive school of over 1,350 students a Teacher of Art and Design (temporary one term). This is an excellent opportunity to join a successful, friendly and highly experienced team.
Brentside High School is a specialist Visual Arts College. We achieve very high levels of success with our own students and are considered a centre of excellence for visual arts within the Borough, providing support for other Ealing schools. We have very strong links with practicing professional artists and designers, partner universities and art organisations including a group of European specialist arts colleges. Brentside has a team of 15 very highly qualified art and design teachers, 6 specialist support staff and very well equipped studios and workshops. Art & Design is a core subject within the curriculum at Key Stages 3 and 4. At Key Stage 5 we have over 100 students studying A level and BTEC courses.
Whilst we value specialist experience, we also expect staff to contribute to the teaching and support of more than one area of Art and Design.
Ofsted wrote the following: “Visual Arts status has enabled an outstanding range of curriculum enrichment, including numerous projects with national and international galleries and colleges. Art makes a significant contribution to students’ cultural education”
Our students make excellent progress supported by teaching, learning and assessment of the highest standard. Students ‘are extremely complimentary about their school and the staff who work with them. They want to do well, regularly attend and work hard.’ (Ofsted 2016)
This exciting opportunity now exists for an ambitious and talented professional to join our successful school and exceptional Health and Social Care team. Ofsted recognised that ‘there is high-quality support available for those new in post’ enabling staff to ‘quickly integrate into the school’ and acknowledged our ‘supportive ethos where staff can share best practice and continue to develop new skills’. All staff also enjoy outstanding facilities including high quality ICT provision.
Brentside High School is actively committed to partnership work within West London. We are also a National College designated National Support School.
If you believe you have the passion, determination and high expectations to contribute to our vibrant and cohesive community, we look forward to hearing from you.
The school is committed to safeguarding children and the successful applicant will be required to apply for an enhanced disclosure from the DBS.
