This is an exciting time to join Abbeyfield School: under the outstanding and dynamic Leadership Team, the school is moving from strength to strength. Our Ofsted in March 2017 described us as a ‘flourishing’ school with outstanding leadership and management and pupil behaviour. As a result, both the leaders and students are looking for high calibre teachers who are committed to delivering outstanding teaching and learning opportunities for all.

The Governors of Abbeyfield School are seeking to make the appointment of a talented and enthusiastic full time Teacher of Art to join our thriving Creative Arts Department. As a member of the team you will be well-supported by a team of dynamic teachers who are passionate about the Arts. GCSE and A Level results across the department are consistently good. In your role you will be expected to teach a broad art curriculum across Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. Experience of teaching Photography and/or Graphics would also be desirable. 

You will have the exciting opportunity to work within a highly motivated team who are fully committed to developing staff to fulfil their potential.

NQTs are welcome to apply for these posts and will benefit greatly from a supportive and enthusiastic team. All our staff receive professional CPD opportunities much of which draws on our links with the North Wiltshire Schools Teaching Alliance and Challenge Partner links.

Abbeyfield is a community school which occupies purpose built premises. It is situated in a beautiful location within commuting distance of Bath, Bristol and Swindon. The school was inspected in March 2017 and we pledge to offer the following:
