‘Typical of virtually all lessons are the strong and respectful relationships between staff and students. Pupils come to class ready to learn’ Ofsted 2017

Eskdale School is a successful, popular and growing 11-16 community school situated in Whitby on the North Yorkshire Coast. As a school we have teachers and support staff that from travel from areas such as Redcar, Guisborough, and Ryedale, as well as from Scarborough and Filey.

We thrive being a smaller than average school (500 on roll) which means as a colleague you will really get to know our students and our wider community family who all subscribe to our ethos of ‘ A place of belonging – a place of inspiration’.

We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the high number of good and outstanding teachers who work in our school. We are also noted for our ‘can do’ attitude. We are always keen to encourage new and/or established staff make their mark as soon as they are ready.

We are:
• A ‘Good’ school in every area by Ofsted in 2017.
• A school who works collaboratively with our fellow federated Whitby school - Caedmon College.
• A school where British values are at the heart of our curriculum – so that all our students leave school knowing how to conduct themselves in the wider world.
Our opportunity

We have what we believe to be a rare opportunity. As a result of our current Drama and Dance teacher moving to a deserved new role, we are looking to recruit a teaching colleague to join us in the excellent Creatives Faculty.

• To teach Dance at KS4 and opportunities to develop this area at KS3.
• To teach Art at KS4
• To work alongside our other Creative teachers

As our new Drama teacher you will join the highly skilled Drama department where students achieve excellent results

In what we believe to be an outstanding opportunity, we are looking to appoint a specialist Teacher of Drama to join our successful faculty. You would join a Drama faculty which is staffed with Drama specialists who continue to build year on year in terms of outcomes, curriculum and extracurricular options to our students.

As a new teacher, we will invest in your future development as a teaching professional through our ‘Teaching Programme’.
