The Oriel Art Department
The Art & Design department at Oriel High School consists of five members
of teaching staff and two technicians. They are a fantastic team of staff who
are extremely passionate about their subject area. Art is a well-resourced
department that boasts four specialist Art rooms; a photographic darkroom,
a kiln room and a Sixth Form Study room. Our students have access to a
wide range of equipment including digital cameras, pottery wheels, sewing
machines, batik pots and a heat press.
GCSE Art is offered across three specialisms, Textile, 3D and Fine Art at Key
Stage 4 and this is extended to also include photography at A level
There are excellent support networks for the art team staff - both in the
department and across the wider school and collaborative working is very
important to us.
Art is highly thought of at Oriel High School and this can be seen by the
impressive amount of student artwork displayed all around the school.

• Is an excellent teacher with the ability to stretch, inspire, enthuse and engage learners,
• Can teach general Art and Design across Key Stages 3 and 4
• Is a 3D Art / Ceramics/ Textiles of Fine Art specialist.
We would welcome applications from teachers who would like to

effective CPD to achieve this
