Teacher of Art job summary

The Wensum Trust is seeking to appoint a committed and enthusiastic colleague to teach in our Art Department at Hellesdon High School. This post offers the opportunity to teach Art across all three Key Stages.

We are a thriving Art Department where individual creativity is seen to be a core and vital part of education. Housed in a purpose-built block, with a vibrant exhibition space, our team of art specialists, supported by a technician, strive to deliver high quality provision with a broad range of art, craft and design disciplines. We have a lively, well-established curriculum where detailed schemes of works build pupils' understanding and enjoyment of visual art. The art department achieves exceptional results both at GCSE and A level.

At Hellesdon High School we are committed to an evidence-informed approach and a strong subject specific basis to our CPD programme. As a school and trust we offer excellent support for early career teachers, a number of career development opportunities and have great success in supporting staff seeking promoted posts.

Whilst this post would be ideal for an Early Career Teacher it is also a great opportunity for a teacher looking to broaden their experience in a large school with a Sixth Form and those seeking positions of responsibility in the future.

As part of The Wensum Trust, we believe that our shared duty is to help every child to develop into high achieving, confident, healthy, caring and resilient members of their family and community. We want our schools to be healthy environments where both children and staff can develop and where strong, positive relationships are key. Our school, therefore, practises a relational approach with children, our families and our communities. We are particularly interested in working with people who share Our Qualities; who will work effectively and flexibly as part of a team.

We care about bringing together the most able people, to help us achieve our vision of providing a rounded education for children, quality support for their families and opportunities to enrich our communities.

Being a part of The Wensum Trust’s family of schools offers employees unique experiences to work alongside our strategic partners and to collaborate with a wider network of staff. We believe in investing in employees as individuals, by providing training opportunities that help to develop both existing and new skill sets, to encourage career progression at all levels.

We value our staff and are committed to supporting their wellbeing. We have an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) which all staff can access 24 hours a day. The EAP provides counselling services, legal information and guidance, musculoskeletal services and online resources such as nutrition diaries, healthy eating plans, personal coaching questionnaires and tools and fitness programmes.

We care about bringing together the most able people, to help us achieve our vision of providing a rounded education for children, quality support for their families and opportunities to enrich our communities.
