Student participation and engagement is high, with enthusiasm and interest in physical education from year 7 through to KS5. The Arts, Performance and Technology Faculty has a well-established working relationship with other schools within the Abingdon Learning Trust, alongside other local schools. This enables students to access a wide range of facilities and opportunities, this includes meeting international rugby players and using swimming facilities and athletics tracks.

You will be joining a vibrant, creative and experienced team in a key faculty. The Arts, Performance and Technology Faculty brings together Art, Music, Drama, PE and Technology, subjects enjoyed by students and integral to the life of Fitzharrys.

This is an exciting time to join us in our continued development. If you want to be part of a school with high aspirations for students and staff and want to contribute to each student achieving their ambitions, then we look forward to meeting you.
