Lymm High SchoolLymm

This is an exciting opportunity for a part time teacher of Art/DT to join a well-established and forward looking department, in a school that values the full breadth of the curriculum.

Lymm High School is a well-established, 11-18 school with over 1950 students (400 in the 6th form) and exceptional resources, including 28 acres of beautiful grounds, a swimming pool, leisure complex and our own residential centre in Anglesey. Rapid and sustained improvement in recent years led to a Progress 8 score of 0.56 in 2019, with 9-4 and 9-5 basics measures at 70% and 90% respectively. It is also a lovely place in which to work; in addition to our good fortune with our physical surroundings, staff are exceptionally positive, committed and supportive.

Art and DT are a strong team who sit within the faculty of Art and Design. Art and DT are both taught at KS3 (Y7 to Y9). At KS4 we offer a wide range of creative subjects including Design Technology, Hospitality and Catering, Photography, Textiles and Art. Results have been consistently strong at both KS4 and KS5, in 2019 DT 4+ at 73% 7+ 38%, in Art 4+ 89% 7+ 46%. The faculty boasts an array of facilities including textiles and photography equipment, full industry standard kitchens serving a small restaurant, a laser cutter and 3D printer.

We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and committed team player, who has the ability to teach both Art and DT KS3. This post would suit an NQT as well as someone who has already been teaching for a few years. We are as interested in your potential and determination to become a first class practitioner as we are in your experience to date.
