Passion  .   Clarity  .   Belief

We seek to appoint an enthusiastic, creative and dedicated Teacher of Digital Photography. The ideal candidate for this vacancy will be highly motivated and committed to delivering engaging and inspiring Photography lessons. 

We welcome applications from practitioners of all levels of experience, however the ideal candidate must be confident in delivering the subject up to, and including, A-level as we only deliver the subject at key stages 4 and 5.  A solid understanding of DSLR cameras, Powerpoint and Photoshop is essential.

The Photography department enjoys first class teaching facilities with both Mac and PC access, and all rooms have an interactive whiteboard and visualizer. Collaboration is a big focus within the Visual Arts department and the successful applicant will benefit from sharing and contributing to a large bank of excellent resources.  All schemes of work are in place and are shared in centralised electronic folders. There is regular department time to support all elements of delivery in order to ensure an engaging and exciting experience for all.

The department has celebrated fantastic progress and achievements since the opening of the Academy. Photography is well supported by the school and this allows for a wide variety of opportunities to be offered and accessed by both students and staff. All of these elements have contributed to strong GCSE and A level results.

Through the subject students are actively encouraged to display and celebrate their work. The department also benefits greatly from being part of a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT), which allows for the sharing of resources and expertise, and provides access to experiences often unavailable to individual schools.
