What skills and experience we're looking for

The Governors wish to appoint a well-qualified, innovative Curriculum Leader for Dance (with second subject). The post is offered at 0.8 FTE but full-time hours may be considered for the appropriate candidate. This can be discussed with the headteacher in the first instance.

The Performing Arts team is a highly successful, forward-looking team, committed to excellence and the raising of achievement for all students. The team consists of three musicians, two Drama and two Dance specialists. Together the team deliver our curriculum, extra-curricular and community activities. All students have timetabled Music, Dance and Drama at Key Stage 3 and we run Music, Dance, Drama courses at GCSE. Performing Arts have always been a central part of our work as a school and there is a very high level of student and staff involvement. We have a superb performance space that seats 300 and has high quality lighting and sound systems. We also have excellent teaching and performance areas for each aspect of the Performing Arts and this includes a fantastic new Music block.

What the school offers its staff

As a school we are extremely proud of our badge, you will see it everywhere around the school. We are proud because it sums everything that we believe in. The motto on the badge says ‘Ut Fili Lucis Fiatis’ and it means ‘to become children of the light’, and that is the reason we exist as a school. We believe that every young person who walks through our doors has enormous potential. Our staff work hard to help students to reach their best and become enlightened, or as our motto says, become children of the light.

Everyone at The Earls High School supports students to make as much academic progress as possible so that they are equipped for the next stage of their education or career. We believe that it is our duty to help them develop character too, so that they can communicate effectively, have the resilience to carry on when things get difficult, work effectively as member of a team and develop their leadership skills. We want students who leave us to be kind, compassionate and caring individuals; people who will support and help their neighbours and make a significant positive contribution to Halesowen or whatever community they choose to live in.

If we develop these three qualities in the young people who choose to come to our school, we can feel content that we have done our job well.
