We are looking for a talented and dedicated teacher to join our committed team. Our Art department goes from strength to strength. Our shared expectations are high and students value the subject meaning they enjoy their learning; they make us proud every day.

We are keen to hear from enthusiastic and ambitious teachers, passionate about their subject and who can clearly see why it has an important part to play in the curriculum. The length of your experience as a teacher is less important to us than your ability to motivate and inspire. Our new colleague will have an unstinting belief that every young person, whatever their starting point, can make and sustain exceptional progress and that our purpose is to change lives.

We are excited to receive applications from newly qualified teachers ready to start a brilliant new career with us and take advantage of our bespoke approach to professional induction just as much as more experienced colleagues looking for their next step.

You will have access to ongoing development opportunities and the support of a forward-thinking, successful multi-academy trust. You will be joining a well-led, supportive, and cohesive team of professionals who will do whatever it takes to help you to succeed in your new and exciting role.

As well as having a passion for young people and their futures our colleague will:

  • be a dynamic professional with a desire for rapidly improving standards
  • be an outstanding geographer or have the knowledge and skills to teach geography
  • have a track record of delivering clear impact on standards, attainment and progress
  • bring an unwavering commitment to doing whatever it takes
  • have the ability to engage, inspire and build excellent relationships with both students and staff
  • know how to balance holding colleagues to account with supporting them and helping them to be brilliant teachers. 

This is an exciting opportunity to join a highly ambitious team of staff and make a real impact on our students’ lives. The successful candidate will have the chance to teach across the full age and ability range up to sixth form.
