At KS3, Design is taught across 4 rotations of Technology
consisting of three lessons a fortnight of either Textiles, Graphics, 3D Design
and Food Tech. Art is delivered once a fortnight, with students covering a
range of skills including drawing, painting, printing, and photography. Moving
into KS4, students are then able to make an informed choice between GCSE AQA
Fine Art, Graphic Communication, Photography, Textiles, 3D Design and OCR Food
Preparation and Nutrition. Student progress in the faculty is consistently
outstanding across all disciplines.
Over £160,000 was invested into refurbishing the Art and Design
Technology department in 2021, redeveloping the classrooms into
state-of-the-art studios. Each studio is designed to facilitate a variety of
artistic specialisms with access to a range of equipment from sewing machines,
throwing wheels, 3D printers and a fully equipped photographic studio and dark
should demonstrate a well thought out philosophy of education which reflects
the needs of all learners. They will be keen to play a full part in the life of
the school community, to support its distinctive mission and ethos and to
encourage and ensure staff and students follow this example. Most importantly,
as far as personal characteristics are concerned, we would like to find someone
with warmth, enthusiasm, flexibility, and a generosity of spirit. Last, but by no means least, a sense of humour
This is a very exciting opportunity to join the Art and Design Department
at Trafalgar School. You would be working
alongside our experienced Director of ADT, the Second in department, and a
dedicated team of teachers.
Our aim is to provide an outstanding all-round educational experience and we are committed to the success and excellence for all our students. In June 2023 we were inspected by OFSTED and judged to be a strongly ‘good’ school with ‘outstanding’ personal development. We are enjoying the next stage of our journey (to become outstanding in all areas!) and continue to receive incredible feedback about our child centred approach; our leaders share our best practice through extensive outreach work across the city and beyond.
Trafalgar School is a beacon school for
Relational Practice in the south which means we put the building, maintaining
and restoring of relationships with all members of our community at the heart
of everything we do. It is essential that the post holder shares our
school ethos which is firmly rooted in this restorative practice approach. We
work restoratively with students, families and with each other to maintain the strong community
culture and our very strong inclusive ethos.
‘Relationships are highly positive because staff
take time to understand and remove barriers to pupils’ learning’.
