Teacher of Drama 

Full-time, permanent. 

Required for September 2018 

Darwen Vale High School is an Aldridge Academy and as such, part of the national multi academy trust. At a more local level we are part of the North West Cluster of schools that includes 2 other secondary schools and 1 primary school. 

We have outstanding facilities and in September 2012 the school moved into its award winning new school building which retained the iconic frontage of the old Grammar school whilst providing state-of-the-art modern facilities.  

In our Ofsted inspection in November we were judged to be RI. This matched our own self-evaluation. The Ofsted team commented, “Leaders, Governors and the trust are taking appropriate action to change the direction of the school.” 

As our numbers grow, we need an inspirational Teacher of Drama to deliver high quality lessons to pupils across years 7 -11. There is the opportunity to teach A Level or primary at our partner schools within the cluster. 

Applications are welcome from both NQTs (possible July start), and experienced teachers. There is the possibility of additional  responsibilities with appropriate remuneration for the right candidate.  

We can offer: 

State of the art modern facilities. 

Great location; straight off Junction 4 of the M65 and within a 30 minute commute for most places in Manchester and Lancashire. 

Outstanding CPD opportunities, including working with a partner school, DACA, DAES or Sudell Primary School. 

Closing date for applications is: 12.00 noon, Monday 30th April 2018.  

Interviews will take place: w/c 7th May.
