Job Description

Job/Person Summary

We are seeking an enthusiastic and determined teacher to join our forward-thinking Art and Design Technology team. The department is an exciting learning environment with staff that have a passion and drive to share excellent lessons and learning experiences with the Everest students.

The ethos of the department is to challenge students to be creative, work independently and push themselves to achieve their absolute best. The intent of our Art and Design Technology curriculum is one which covers Art, 3D Design and Design Technology, and aims to give students the knowledge, confidence and skills to be creative learners and obtain skills they can apply in the wider world. Our curriculum is aspirational for all. Top down differentiation is heavily focused on to create challenge, with artist, teacher and ex-students work used to inspire students. We study topics that are relevant and create understanding of diversity by studying a range of artists, movements and cultures to broaden students experiences.

As part of the department we have 3 art rooms, 2 fully equipped Design Technology workshops and a STEAM room including state of the art 3D printers.

In the wider context, we are a fast paced and dynamic mixed comprehensive school meeting the needs of children of all abilities from 11-16 years. The school is in an exciting phase, having joined the high performing Bourne Education Trust in 2017. We are eager to appoint exceptional individuals who wish to make a significant contribution to the learning and lives of our students. We have a proven track record of working with and developing newly qualified teachers and those ready for promotion. We were obviously delighted with the swift progress being made by the school but are greedy for more. Our ideal candidates are energetic, ambitious (for themselves and their students), resilient and enthusiastic. This post is ideal for those wanting to be part of a rapid transformation and eager to work in a school and trust that puts quality education for its students at its core.
