About the job

“The principles of true art is not to portray, but to evoke.” – Jerzy Kosinski

An exceptional Secondary school in North London is looking for an enthusiastic Art graduate to join their flourishing Arts department. Your main responsibilities would be helping students express themselves in ways that words can’t and creating a safe environment for them to do so. Art is the most powerful form of individualism, it gives people a voice without tiring peoples ears, and that is what you should strive to instil in your students.

This is a school proud of its Ofsted rating of ‘Outstanding’, and it has maintained performance at that level for the last three inspections. Drawing its pupils from a diverse range of backgrounds, pupil progression beyond the national average is a key focus of every member of the team. The Head Teacher, the senior team and the governors lead the school outstandingly well, ensuring that both teaching, and achievement are of the highest standard. The tracking of pupils’ learning and progress is accurate, consistent, and rigorous. Staff satisfaction is central to the ethos of the school, and this is demonstrated by the very low rate of staff turnover and outstanding opportunities for professional development.
