An exciting opportunity now exists for an outstanding practitioner to join a successful and supportive team of Performing Arts specialists. We are looking for someone with vision and energy, capable of teaching across the age range to ‘A’ level and inspiring students of all abilities to become involved in curricular and extra-curricular drama. 

The successful candidate will either be a Drama specialist or an English teacher with a strong interest and experience of teaching Drama. An interest in another Performing Art would also be an advantage. 

The school has excellent facilities for the performing arts. Drama is housed in a £1.2 million Music and Drama block adjacent to the school’s main performance area, the Hollinshead Hall which is capable of staging major productions. The department has a strong tradition of extra-curricular drama and recent productions include ‘Hot Mikado, ‘Oliver’ and ‘Hairspray’.

Applications from experienced, recently qualified and newly qualified teachers welcomed.

Alsager School is a fantastic place to work with motivated and well behaved students, a committed and experienced governing body, dedicated staff and supportive parents. We offer exceptional teacher training and a full range of professional development opportunities.

Children of all abilities make impressive progress throughout the key stages and Alsager is one of the highest performing schools in Cheshire East. In 2017 75% of students achieved 9 – 4 in GCSE English and Maths. In addition our school Progress 8 score was a very impressive +0.31, putting us in the top 25% of schools nationally. 

We are part of the Chimney House Teaching School Alliance and can offer you exceptional CPD,

a comprehensive induction programme, a laptop, reduced staff membership rates at the on-site leisure centre fitness suite and there are excellent road and rail links to the town.
