The Oriel Art Department
INNOVATIVE, MOTIVATED AND SUCCESSFUL
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.
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.
We are looking to appoint someone who…...
• Is an excellent teacher with the ability to stretch, inspire, enthuse and
• Can teach general Art and Design across Key Stages 3 and 4
• Is a Textile Art, 3D Art (Ceramics) or Fine Art specialist with an ability
or willingness to contribute to the delivery of this specialism at KS5.
We have excellent support for NQTs and would welcome applications
from newly qualified teachers who would like to grow and develop in an
innovative and forward thinking department; or more experienced teachers looking for their first promotion. Oriel has a detailed NQT training
package praised by West Sussex and actively encourages CPD throughout
the school with a comprehensive program for teachers at all stages of
