Teacher of Drama / Performing Arts

Due to increasing student numbers, we are looking to appoint a talented, enthusiastic and inspirational Teacher of Drama and Performing Arts to join our dedicated, supportive and hardworking team.

Bishop Fox’s is a friendly, inclusive and successful school with 970 students.  We were rated as a ‘good’ school in our most recent Ofsted report (February 2017) with many of our strengths highlighted. Our ethos of ‘High Standards and High Expectations’ underpins everything that we do.  We work hard to create a caring and challenging learning environment in which each individual can strive, enjoy and achieve.

Staff are dedicated to building opportunities for students to achieve the highest academic standards, ensuring that they are known as individuals and that their unique personality, talents and interests are nurtured and developed to the full.  A Bishop Fox’s education is about developing the whole child and providing opportunities for them to flourish within and beyond the classroom.

We are looking for someone who, either, is already or has the potential to become an outstanding teacher.  In particular, you will see from the Person Specification that we are seeking a colleague with a commitment to education and young people and the extra-curricular life of the school.
