An independent school on the Warwickshire/Herefordshire borders require a part-time English and Drama teacher from September 2020. The position would entail teaching English to A level and Drama to Key Stage 3 and preferably, to GCSE level. This is initially a maternity cover with a strong likelihood of becoming permanent and with the role becoming a Head of Drama with English position for the right candidate.

Essential: Prior experience teaching English to A level and Drama to at least Key Stage 3 or applications from strong NQTs would also be considered. Full support would be provided for the NQT Induction.

Desired: Experience teaching Drama to GCSE or A level and a background in the independent sector would be a bonus, however, this is certainly not essential.

The school's mission is to foster a thirst for knowledge and a real commitment to learning. Students are shown what it means to take responsibility; they are encouraged to develop a strong moral code with the ability to make informed judgements about what is right and wrong. Central to their ethos is the importance of caring for others and teaching students important skills for later life: social, physical and practical.

The chosen candidate should be well organised, thoughtful about how they teach and how they can contribute to improvement in teaching and learning with high expectations of the pupils, themselves and their colleagues. The successful candidate will be expected to play an active role in contributing to the range of exciting co-curricular activities offered by the department.
