The conversion of its 1870s romantic, neo-medieval sanatorium has provided Winchester College with an Art School that has splendidly spacious, well-lit and fully equipped studios for ceramics, drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture.
The College, which was founded in 1382, is a boys’ boarding school of 700 pupils. We are committed to the highest standards of academic excellence, first-class pastoral care and the maintenance of a broad and balanced liberal education for all our pupils. Through our non-examined general cultural studies programme (known as Division) we offer an approach to education which develops an intelligent and critical awareness of the world, strong communication skills and a confident ability to think independently and with originality. Our pupils enjoy living in a community in which academic engagement is regarded as a priority; we aim to foster in them an enthusiastic appetite for university study, an unaffected modesty of manner, a strong sense of social responsibility and a lifelong love of learning.
This post will suit teachers of the highest calibre who will relish the challenge of working with able and articulate pupils in a historic site of unparalleled architectural beauty in the heart of Winchester. All our full time teachers are expected to act as tutors in one of the boarding houses, thereby making a significant contribution to the pastoral care of our pupils. In addition to this, the successful applicant will be required to contribute in some capacity to our sports and co-curricular programme.
