The Oriel Art Department
INNOVATIVE, MOTIVATED AND SUCCESSFUL
The Art & Design department at Oriel High School consists of five members of teaching staff and two technicians. They are a fantastic team of staff who are extremely passionate about their subject area. Art is a well-resourced department that boasts four specialist Art rooms; a photographic darkroom, a kiln room and a Sixth Form Study room. Our students have access to a wide range of equipment including digital cameras, pottery wheels, sewing machines, batik pots and a heat press.
There are excellent support networks for art staff - both in the department and across the wider school. Collaborative working is very important to the art team and the successful applicant will enjoy working as part of a creative
team. Art is considered to be a very important part of the Oriel High School curriculum and we believe that all students should be given the op-portunity to explore their own individuality and creativity.

• Is an excellent teacher with the ability to stretch, inspire, enthuse and engage learners.

We have excellent support for NQTs and would welcome applications from newly qualified teachers who would like to grow and develop in an innovative and forward thinking department; or more experienced teach-ers looking for their first promotion. Oriel has a detailed NQT training package praised by West Sussex and actively encourages CPD throughout the school with a comprehensive program for teachers at all stages of their careers.
