We are delighted to offer this opportunity to join Nunnery Wood High School, a successful, popular and exciting school. You will work with highly skilled and committed colleagues who have built a thriving Arts and Performing Arts department with excellent leadership throughout. A reputation for strong teaching and creative environments means that Drama and other Art courses are consistently popular at GCSE with a wide range of our students. Outcomes are generally excellent and the leadership team values Arts subjects as both essential to the curriculum and a fantastic example of the school at its best.
This role will allow the right candidate to take a strong subject-area in new directions: you will have the support, facilities and students already in place. Whatever you level of experience, whether looking for a straight teaching role or seeking leadership, we would like to hear from you. We are happy to shape the role around a suitably skilled teacher.
A new Art teaching block will be completed this term, complementing superb facilities already on site including dance and drama studios and a theatre with an orchestra pit. Many Art teaching rooms are fully equipped with Apple computers.
