Teacher of Art We are seeking an ambitious and inspirational classroom practitioner who can teach Art.  We wish to appoint an exceptional individual who has the necessary skills and attributes to have a real impact upon Art learning and teaching at Bohunt Worthing. Potential is as important as experience so applications are invited from NQTs as well as more experienced colleagues. Successful NQTs receive a £1500 bonus in their fourth term and all staff receive an iPad and laptop.  Bohunt School Worthing is a new Academy that opened in September 2015 with Year 7 and 8 only.  We moved into state of the art buildings in September 2016 and have grown to 760 students across Years 7-11.

Please refer to the letter to applicants and job description for more specific details about the role.

Are you able to:
