What skills and experience we're looking for

We seek to appoint a Deputy Head of Dance and Drama to support the Head of Department in our diverse and very popular school. This role would suit someone looking to move into middle leadership.

Dance and Drama are taught as discrete subjects at Key Stage 3, and students take part in one hour of dance and one hour of drama per fortnight delivered by subject specialists. At Key Stage 4 we offer both GCSE Dance and Drama and at Key stage 5 both Dance and Drama A level.

We deliver a range of extra-curricular events throughout the year ranging from small intimate drama performances to large whole school musicals and Dance Festivals. We regularly take students to performances in local theatre and in central London. Dance plays a large part in the admissions process and year 5 students audition annually for a 'Dance place' within the Year 7 cohort. We have three dance and drama studios two of which include full mirrors and IT facilities

What the school offers its staff

We are committed to supporting staff wellbeing in a variety of ways. The good working relationships within the staff body, and between staff and students is why many colleagues have chosen to stay with us for the long term. We are also strong in supporting staff career development and colleagues are successful in securing promotions at all levels. We support colleagues in pursuing NPQs and offer a secondment programme onto the Senior Leadership Team for middle leaders.

Admission into Year 7 is offered to children of staff with two or more years’ service.
