Founded in 1807, Mill Hill School is an independent co-educational boarding and day school with 715 pupils aged between 13 and 18, of whom 275 are in the Sixth Form. The School is one of four in the Mill Hill School Foundation, which comprises Pre-preparatory, Preparatory and Senior Schools as well an on-site International School.
We are situated in a magnificent 120-acre parkland campus on the edge of the North London Green Belt, providing a wonderful environment in which to work. The School is very much a community, particularly given the central importance of boarding: we are unusual for a London school to be offering full and weekly boarding, with over 180 boarding pupils.
A well-qualified and enthusiastic graduate is required for September 2018 to teach Art to GCSE and A-level within a dynamic and successful department.
The School prides itself on the success and profile of its creative subjects. All pupils in the Fourth Form (Year 9) have three 50-minute periods of Art per fortnight. We run a Stretch and Challenge programme with our Foundation Preparatory School to help the ablest prepare for transition to Art at the Senior School. Art is a popular GCSE choice both for Art specialists and for pupils who want some variation from a classically academic programme. We have two or three GCSE sets each year, the maximum set size being around 16. Results at GCSE Art have averaged 85% A*/A over the past three years.
The successful candidate will be expected to play a full part in the extra curricular life of the School. He or she will be paid at the appropriate point of the Mill Hill School salary scale.
Further information on the post, together with the application form, is available by email or post and on the School’s website www.millhill.org.uk
The School and all its staff are committed to safeguarding the welfare of children. The School is registered with the DBS and successful applicants will be required to complete successfully the Disclosure procedure at the Enhanced level.
