What skills and experience we're looking for

Bedford is a Platinum Artsmark School, Lead Artsmark School, Music Mark, Royal Exchange Ambassador School and National Theatre Flagship School.The Arts Faculty is composed of Art, Dance, Drama and Music and our united vision is to ‘Bring out the best in everyone through creative thinking and expression’. This statement is at the forefront of everything we do to ensure our students have as many high-quality Arts opportunities as possible.

We are looking to appoint a well-qualified, talented and energetic Art Technician.

We are a friendly, supportive department which is made up of 3 teaching staff, who teach in three fully equipped rooms all of which have interactive Whiteboards.

We also have ICT facilities in two Art rooms and two Art stock rooms with a ceramics area that has two fully functioning kilns. It is an exciting time to join our department as next year we hope to expand the departments facilities and deliver GCSE Art Textiles and have an artist in residence.

Our extra-curricular clubs are popular with students and we provide artist workshops and trips each year. We have a very successful Summer Art exhibition event that happens every year that brings the Bedford Arts faculty and community together.

We truly believe that every child matters and we push to get the best out of each student. Not all of our pupils have access to the same resources or opportunities outside of the school gates: we want to look and learn new ways to encourage learning and revision.
