We recognise that these outcomes are only possible through the commitment, dedication and skills of our highly valued staff.
We are seeking to recruit an inspirational Teacher of Drama to join Friesland School. You will be working within a team who values extra curricular activity highly. We run various successful clubs and groups including drama, musical theatre and improv clubs, LAMDA examinations for all years, Friesland Theatre Club (KS4/5 students direct performance pieces with KS3 students) and Theatre Masterclasses with external and internal practitioners. We also produce annual senior and junior school Shows with regular theatre trips as part of the student’s studies
The Faculty's GCSE and A Level results are consistently some of the highest in school and uptake is extremely high compared with the national average.
We are very passionate about the benefits to all students who participate in the Performing Arts and foster a culture of belonging, entitlement and inclusion. We continually promote responsibility, self-initiative, creativity and self-expression. In the context of a specialist building set up to cater for performances of all types this allows students to gain transferable life and study skills benefiting other subject areas.
The successful candidate will be hard-working, dedicated and focused. We welcome applications from colleagues with the drive and commitment to consistently pursue the highest standards of student outcomes and deliver sessions with an innovative, inspiring and challenging approach.
