Following a review of our Curriculum offer to KS4, we have an exciting and new opportunity for an inspirational teacher with the ability to teach across at least one of the following disciplines: Art, Product Design, Graphics, Food, Textiles and Resistant Materials, to join us from September. The successful candidate will be joining a dynamic, committed team of staff. Our vision is to embed a culture of creative design and practical making with a range of materials and secure knowledge of the current and modern technological approaches to problem solving. At a time where tight budgets are seeing Creative Arts and Design cut back in school, it is thriving and developing at Gosford Hill.

We are fortunate to have spacious accommodation, with purpose built workshops. We are very well resourced with a laser cutter, 3D printer to support our students in accessing CAD/CAM, and a newly recommissioned kiln. The team is supported by an extremely competent technician. 

Gosford Hill School is situated in Kidlington, on the north western edge of Oxford near to the new Oxford Parkway Station (a 50 minute journey from London), with ample staff parking and on the main bus route into Oxford. We work closely with Oxford University and Oxford Brookes University. We are also fortunate to be at the gateway to the rural Cotswolds. We prioritise staff well being and development and our ‘Golden Ticket’ scheme rewards strong staff attendance. Visits to the school, by arrangement, are welcome.  

If you are interested in the post, please complete a Gosford Hill School application form and include a letter (of no more than 2 sides of A4) outlining your reasons for applying and your suitability for the post. Application forms and further details are available on the school’s website or from Nicola Cooke, Headteacher’s PA (tel. 01865 374971; email jobapplications@gosford-hill.oxon.sch.uk  The closing date for receipt of applications is noon on Tuesday 21st May 2019.
