What skills and experience we're looking for

King Harold Academy is a school with a clear and ambitious vision: to become one of the kindest, hardest-working, highest-achieving schools in the UK.

We are a proud community school with incredible students, supportive parents and talented, committed staff members. Expectations at King Harold are extremely high.

We live by a clear set of values that drive everything we do:

o Kindness

o Hard Work

o Ambition

These values shape all aspects of the work we do: the curriculum we teach, our behaviour policy, our teaching framework, our enrichment programme, our approach to teacher wellbeing, our interactions with parents and students – everything we do. King Harold Academy is a rapidly-developing, growing secondary school. It is an exciting time to come and work with us, to be part of a team who are building a school that transforms the life chances of young people in the community, with ambitions to become a beacon of excellence in the educational sector. Members of our teaching team love working at KHA. We work closely together, reward and recognise each other’s hard work and successes, and pride ourselves on the quality of our professional development. All of our staff run clubs and enrichment activities, and next year we'll be making this part of teachers’ allocation of lessons, because we are committed to building strong relationships and developing well-rounded KHA students, who leave us with more than just qualifications.

We would like our KHA scholars to be empowered and inspired to go on to further study in the subject at some of the most prestigious colleges and universities in the country. You will join a positive and supportive staff body. Our SLT are incredibly talented and committed to the school. They are highly visible, models of excellent teaching themselves, and take great pride in the development of our teaching teams. If you’re interested in playing a crucial role in building a school community that provides a transformative education for its students, then King Harold Academy is an exciting opportunity for you.

The successful candidate will have/be:

  • Kind, Hard-Working and Ambitious
  • A passion for teaching Art;
