Friesland School is a values-centred organisation, and we strive to live up to our ethos of Ambition, Teamwork, Honesty and Respect in everything that we do. Our school is a vibrant and energetic educational environment, where we prioritise the academic, personal and cultural education of all our students. At Friesland we have high expectations of ourselves and those around us, working collectively to develop and improve whilst enhancing the life opportunities of our students. We have a long track record of high attainment at both Y11 and Y13, alongside a wide and varied extra-curricular provision.

As someone interested in a role at our school we would urge to come to visit us and see Friesland School for yourself, as there is no better way to learn about our wonderful school and what we offer.

The role:

As a dedicated and inspirational Faculty Leader of Performing and Expressive Arts, you will be instrumental in developing the vision for the faculty. We are seeking a highly motivated, committed teacher who is passionate about instilling a love for all elements of performing arts across the whole school community. As a faculty leader you will take the lead in all aspects of learning and teaching in this curriculum area ensuring that students’ needs for all abilities are met and achievement and progress is positive. The person appointed will have a clear vision of what outstanding provision is and be able to inspire and enthuse others.

The person:

The successful candidate will be an experienced dynamic classroom practitioner with a clear sense of purpose and high expectations. This role is an ideal opportunity for someone who wishes to take the next step in their school leadership journey.

You will be working within a team who values extra curricular activity highly. We run various successful clubs and groups, LAMDA examinations for all years and charity showcase evenings. We also produce annual senior and junior school Shows with regular theatre trips as part of the student’s studies.

The Faculty's GCSE and A Level results are consistently some of the highest in school and uptake is high compared with the national average.

We are very passionate about the benefits to all students who participate in the Performing Arts and foster a culture of belonging, entitlement and inclusion. We continually promote responsibility, self-initiative, creativity and self-expression. In the context of a specialist building set up to cater for performances of all types this allows students to gain transferable life and study skills benefiting other subject areas.

Applicants must be able to attend the school in person if selected for interview.
