What skills and experience we're looking for

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 room.

Applicants 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 is essential!
