What skills and experience we're looking for

“Every child is an artist” said Picasso and this is a philosophy that we very much adhere to.

We are a good school with great students and ambitious, talented staff, who aim to develop world class students who have the belief in themselves that anything is possible. Art and Design Technology are central to our curriculum and the successful candidate will be joining a well-led and well-resourced curriculum area. You will need to be able to teach Art and Photography to GCSE and ideally both to A-level. Each teacher has their own designated classroom, complete with desktop PC and visualiser. Due to the collaboration with Design Technology within the curriculum area, there is also access to a shared computer suite and laser cutter along with dye sublimation resources. The curriculum area is also supported by two experienced technicians.
