Teacher of Drama or Drama and Music
A vacant post for a drama or drama/music teacher has arisen in our successful performing arts department. We are seeking a qualified teacher who is either experienced or an ECT to join our supportive, friendly and skilful team. We are ideally looking for somebody who is either already a proven excellent practitioner or who is committed, with support, to become excellent.
At Miltoncross, we are on an exciting journey to become the very best. We have high expectations of ourselves and our students. We provide a strong well-rounded education that has attainment at its heart. We take a warm and strict approach, with strong consistent systems that serve our young people well, and lead to good behaviour in classrooms.
The successful candidate will be knowledgeable in their subject and will be somebody who stays abreast of current thinking in performing arts as a national curriculum subject because they love their subject and want children to love it too. They, like all of us, will be relentless in their desire to ensure that students at Miltoncross enjoy, learn and develop personally from the unique experiences that drama offers young people. We are firmly committed to ensuring that staff workload is manageable as we believe that teachers, and leaders, should spend their precious time on those activities that are proven to add value to children’s learning. To achieve this we use a sensible and effective marking strategy, centralised assessments, resources and knowledge organisers. We also operate with a very open mind for any staff to be able to share how we might do things more effectively and efficiently. Miltoncross is a cheerful place to work where everybody pulls in the same direction and works hard to ensure that we do our students the excellent service that they deserve.
