Fulbrook Middle School is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, inspirational and reliable Teacher of Music and Drama. Our Music Subject Leader is about to go on maternity leave; we are also looking to introduce drama as a discrete subject from September 2019. Having held Artsmark Gold in the past, we are currently on our next Artsmark journey.

The post would appeal to someone looking for a short-term contract, although there may be the possibility of extending it beyond March 2020. This post would also suit a Newly Qualified Teacher.

• Qualified Teacher Status

• The ability to motivate pupils and achieve excellent results

• Excellent organisational and ICT skills

• The capacity to work collaboratively as part of a team

Fulbrook is a very popular, high achieving four-form entry school for children aged 9-13 years, with an exciting strategic plan for the future: we have recently submitted a proposal to become an extended secondary school (9-16) from September 2020. Our current number on roll is 430.

Situated in a magnificent green field site, just within the county boundary of Bedfordshire, the school is close to the exciting and vibrant city of Milton Keynes in Buckinghamshire. We are situated less than 2.5 miles from Junction 13 and approximately 4.5 miles from Junction 14 of the M1. By rail, from London Euston to Woburn Sands station - just a short walk from Fulbrook – the journey takes one hour. 

We have excellent results for academic subjects, but we are equally proud of our accredited Values-based school status. We have adopted 12 values that encapsulate the spirit of our school; we encourage staff and pupils to live these values within and beyond Fulbrook.

As well as the Main Scale salary and Teachers’ Pension, we also offer a very popular cash back health insurance package, providing dental, optical, diagnostic consultations, scans and various therapies including physio, chiropractic and osteopathy.

We invite you to visit our school beforehand, when you will have the opportunity to tour the school and meet Mrs Samantha Clancy, our Head teacher.

Fulbrook is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children; this will be reflected throughout the recruitment process.

The successful applicant will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
