Bohunt Wokingham opened in September 2016 with Year 7, growing to a roll of 1200 students, aged 11-16, by September 2020, with a final phase addition of a sixth form of up to 300 still to follow.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to be play an active part of the development and direction of the school as it grows, with rich opportunities for professional and career development both within the school and across the wider Academy Trust. Interest in the new school has been high and as a new and growing school, this represents a unique opportunity for a teacher who is looking to take full advantage of the opportunities available and develop themselves professionally. Potential is as important as experience. Passion, enthusiasm and a keen interest in the creative world is more important than experience.
This is a rare and exciting challenge for a passionate and dynamic candidate to join us in what are still the early stages of our growth. Beginning with year 7 there has been the freedom to design and evolve the curriculum without the restraints of what is already there and the opportunity to create a unique, innovative and rich educational climate, supported by the infrastructure of a hugely successful Trust.
We are looking for someone who can work across a variety of media and creatively adapt to the specific needs of all our students. The ideal candidate will thrive in working collaboratively to develop projects and have a hands-on approach to the development of the art department as well as the entire creative arts faculty through contributions to school performances, set designing and exciting extra-curricular activities.
You will need to demonstrate a commitment to sustaining excellence, helping every child succeed and the potential to be an excellent classroom practitioner. As well as being able to; work as part of a team, roll up your sleeves and inspiring others to excel, you will be committed to putting the arts in centre stage.
