We require an enthusiastic and well-qualified graduate for September 2018. Applicants should demonstrate a willingness to work with a broad range of media and be able to teach Art across all age ranges; an ability to teach Photography or Graphics would be desirable but not essential. The Department offers a number of courses across the curriculum including GCSE, A Level and International Baccalaureate. The well-equipped department offers a wide range of experiences for pupils and has a large number of studio spaces including a ceramics room and its own computer suite.
The post is as suitable for experienced teachers as it is for those new to the profession, who would participate in our highly-regarded Schools Direct programme. A proactive culture of supporting and developing talented and inspiring teachers is supported by the Senior Management Team.
Staff will be encouraged to contribute fully to the co-curricular life of the School and this is reflected in the salary offered. A strong commitment to the pastoral and house system is also anticipated. Accommodation may be available. Assistance is offered towards removal expenses.
We welcome applications from all parts of our community as we aspire to attract staff that matches the social and cultural diversity of our student intake.
