About The Toynbee School

Dear Candidate,

I am delighted that you are considering applying to be a Teacher of Art at Toynbee School. We are proud to be a holistic and inclusive school that promotes the highest expectations of our pupils. It is an exciting time in our development as a school and we are determined to further improve on our journey to become “outstanding”. We are proud of our successful OFSTED inspections in 2015 and 2019, however, we are never complacent and know that there is always more we can do to improve Toynbee for pupils, staff and the wider community. Our pupils know that they are at the centre of all we do and as a result they play a significant role in shaping the school's improvement.

Toynbee is a friendly school with a strong reputation in the local neighbourhood for excellent results and delivering on its 'Personal Best ethos'. Our parents have described the school as "a gem in Chandler's Ford", and our pupils’ aspirations and dreams for their future are the central focus of our work here. We believe that only through full participation in school life can our pupils become the most incredible person they can be. We want them to thrive and develop their potential through every opportunity offered to them, both within and beyond the classroom. Our pupils can enjoy exceptional teaching, with friendly and respectful support alongside some of the best extra -curricular provision the County has to offer.

Our academic curriculum is traditional and there is plenty of choice for all pupils’ talents to be recognised. We pride ourselves on finding flexibility for individuals' needs and whilst this is provided for across the schools' academic and extra-curricular activities, it is especially evident in our Visually Impaired Resource Centre that supports VI pupils across Hampshire and beyond.

When pupils join Toynbee they are put into one of four houses and it is through our House System that pupils are given the chance to earn rewards, achievement points and enter inter-house competitions, which both reinforce and celebrate the gifts and talents of our pupils.

Alongside the impressive exam results our pupils achieve; we want them to grasp every opportunity to learn a new skill or participate in an event which stretches and enriches them. We believe that opportunities taken open doors and develop the whole person. None of this could be achieved without our excellent Guidance Support Team who enable our pupils to flourish and grow in confidence and ability during their time with us.

If you are ready for the next challenge in your career, and would like to be part of this dynamic, exciting journey, we look forward to receiving your application.
