Dear Applicant, 

Teacher of Drama and Creative Arts 

Required from 1st September 2021

Thank you for your interest in the above post, which offers the successful candidate the opportunity to work in this thriving and successful 11-18 rural school. 

 Settle College is a happy school community where innovation, creativity, enterprise and a sense of fun and enjoyment is encouraged, valued and celebrated. We recognise each student as an individual and every single student brings their own unique personality, skills, talents and interests. Academic success is important but so is our commitment to ensuring that students develop the skills that will prepare them for life-long learning in a rapidly changing world; confident in their ability to meet any challenges ahead and enabling every student to succeed and achieve their full potential. 

We are looking for a well-qualified, enthusiastic and hard-working teacher of Drama who has a passion for the subject and the ability to contextualise learning, bringing learning to life. It would be of benefit to offer another creative arts discipline or have the ability and experience to teach another subject outside of the arts. The successful candidate will be aspirational in outlook, showing a commitment to raising achievement in Drama through outstanding teaching and learning in and out of the classroom. In return we can offer you support from a highly committed and experienced team with a strong and positive ethos, where every student is encouraged to be the best they can be. Your support will make a real difference to continue the journey of success of the department. 

What can we offer you? 

• Investment in your professional development. 

• One day off timetable per year for the first 3 years to observe outstanding practice. 

• Access to professional development through the Northern Lights Teaching School Alliance. 

• North Yorkshire County Council’s ‘Everybody Benefits’ package, including salary sacrifice for childcare, or cycle to work. 

• A weekly CPD induction plan to establish you in school.
