Teacher of Drama

CHS SouthManchester

The Trustees of the Prospere Learning Trust would like to invite applications to the post of Teacher of Drama for CHS South.

This is an exciting opportunity for an exceptional candidate to work with a fantastic Visual and Performing Arts Faculty in developing our brand new 11-16 Secondary School, opened in conjunction with Chorlton High School in 2018. Just like Chorlton High, the ethos of using creative learning to challenge, motivate and inspire young people runs throughout everything we do. We currently have pupils in Year 7, 8 and 9 and will build this year on year until we reach our capacity in 2022.  In September we will have the exciting move to our brand new building and to enjoy all of its facilities, including a brand new theatre! 

The delivery model at CHS South is based upon the established structures and processes used to create the outstanding Drama department at Chorlton High School; awarded Outstanding Department of the year award by Pearson Teaching Awards in 2017. We would expect you to collaborate closely with the Drama staff at Chorlton High to successfully establish Drama at the heart of the CHS South experience and would expect you to contribute to robust extra-curricular programme. You will join a faculty of two specialist art teachers and one dance specialist and two experience drama teachers who are on the leadership team, including the Headteacher! 

We welcome applications from energetic , hard working committed candidates who will be able to work both as a team player but also independently and ready for the challenge of teaching in a Manchester inner city school.  

Please explore our community  through the website https://www.chssouth.org.uk/ and have a look at our new building. 

We are committed to recruiting and retaining outstanding practitioners onto our teaching and our support teams to ensure that our students achieve their very best and are led by happy, dedicated and highly skilled staff. As part of this commitment we ensure ongoing training and personalised development for all staff. We have an exciting calendar of CPD training events; active and motivating sessions focused on Teaching and Learning, student attainment and staff well-being.

We  offer a wide range of other benefits to staff including: excellent pension schemes (Teachers Pension for Teaching Staff, Greater Manchester Pension Fund for support staff), cycle to work scheme and childcare vouchers.  We also have a strong focus on staff wellbeing, providing support for healthcare costs plus access to counselling and 24 hour telephone healthcare advice through the BUPA Health Cash Plan.

CHS South is part of the Prospere Trust, a strong Multi-Academy Trust with a growing number of Secondary and Special schools that provide excellent opportunities for all students based on our commitment to academic rigour and exceptional opportunities for the young people within our academies.
