At Witton Park, our guiding principles are simple yet powerful:

  • Children come first and are at the heart of all we do
  • Positive relationships underpin all of our work
  • High expectations and no barriers – everybody can achieve.

If our principles resonate with you, and you are seeking a new challenge, we’d be delighted to receive your application for the vacancy that has arisen in our highly successful Creative Technology department. We are looking for a classroom teacher, either NQT or experienced, to teach Art.  The post would suit applicants who are looking for full time or part time employment.   

This role requires an energetic and dedicated practitioner, who can make a significant contribution to our school community by engaging, enthusing and challenging staff and students to achieve their very best in the subject. You will have excellent subject knowledge and be well-informed on current educational developments and initiatives.

You would be joining a team of colleagues who are passionate about ensuring that all pupils enjoy the subject and are focused on securing the best outcomes for our students. We work collaboratively to share good practice, both within the department and across the school as a whole. Being a BSF and Google accredited school, we are very well-resourced with Promethean whiteboards and Chromebooks, with lessons being taught in modern, spacious classrooms.  The Art department is fully resourced.

The diverse curriculum offered at Witton Park supports a high up take for EBacc and option subjects. Outcomes for pupils in 2016 were judged to be good by Ofsted. We are now likely to be judged outstanding for progress with a progress 8 score of +0.24 in 2016 and a further significant increase to +0.45 in 2017. Our progress figures have dipped a little since then but remain strong.  The Ofsted report and website will give you a flavour for other aspects of the school. 

If you are interested in joining our friendly and forward-thinking team, and you have the skills and qualities required, then we would be delighted to hear from you.

Please take the time to view our new website at https://witton.atctrust.org.uk/ prior to applying.
