An opportunity has arisen for a well-qualified, talented and inspiring Teacher of Dance to join this vibrant department within the Performing Arts faculty, for two terms to cover a maternity leave. This post is open to NQTs and experienced teachers who are able to teach across Key Stages 3, 4 and 5.

The school has an excellent reputation for Performing Arts Productions and the Dance department plays a key role in encouraging our students to immerse themselves in the opportunities on offer via our extensive extra-curricular programme.

The successful candidate will be required to plan and deliver lessons to all ages and abilities and must be able to demonstrate excellent subject knowledge and teach across a range of dance forms.

Weatherhead High School is an extremely successful school. We are accredited with ‘World Class Schools’ status giving us recognition that we have moved beyond our ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted status and have improved student progress, aspiration and achievement to such an extent that our students rival those of the best schools’ nationally and internationally. We were the first school in Wirral and Merseyside to have been awarded this quality mark.

The school consistently achieves significantly above the national average in examination results and has positive scores for both Progress 8 and Attainment 8. Through our work as a Teaching School and via the World Class Schools network, we offer outstanding NQT & RQT Programmes, ongoing CPD for all staff as well as a Wellbeing calendar and sessions open to all. Weatherhead is committed to a culture of excellence and we are looking for an individual who shares that ethos.
