The Governing Body of Acland Burghley School is
seeking to appoint an outstanding Subject Leader for Art from September 2023.
This is an exciting career opportunity for an
outstanding classroom teacher who is ready to lead and motivate their own team.
The successful candidate will articulate a compelling curriculum vision from
Year 7 to Year 13, and will be ambitious to make the subject a beacon of
excellence within our creative and inclusive school. They will have good
understanding of how leaders support teachers in a team to implement the
curriculum consistently, ensuring that the impact of provision is good for all
learners, including those who are disadvantaged, and those with SEND.
The department has 4 other strong Art teachers (including
an ECT) and is supported by 2 curriculum technicians. It sits within a larger
Creative Arts and Technology Faculty, which includes Dance, Drama, Music and
DT. The school places emphasis on creative subjects in its curriculum design.
Art is a popular choice at GCSE, A Level and L3 BTEC.
We are looking for a leader who has an interest in
literacy and pedagogy. The postholder will develop excellent teaching practice
in Art, and will work closely with the Head of Faculty and other middle leaders
within the Faculty to develop outstanding pedagogy across the team. You may
already have had experience of leading a project and evaluating its impact.
The successful candidate will have experience of
teaching A Level Art successfully and will have a strong commitment to ensuring
that every child achieves the highest possible academic standards. S/he will
also be a highly effective, confident and articulate team player with excellent
communication skills, whose reflective practice and high professional standards
make impact on the performance of others.
