We are looking for a vibrant, reliable and effective individual who will support the delivery of Art and Photography across all year groups, from Year 7 to Year 13. You must be committed to inspiring and motivating students and you will be involved working in lessons when required demonstrating practical equipment, to support the students learning. You may be asked to spend two days a week supervising the art club from 3.15pm - 4pm.
This position involves working within a busy and friendly environment, providing support to the Art and Photography Department, teaching staff and our students. The department is well-resourced and each member of staff has their own teaching room and desktop PC. The department has its own staff room within the suite of the Art classrooms. A central exhibition space is curated and overseen by the technician, as is the organisation and management of the Arts and Photography store room.
An interest in the Arts would be advantageous and an understanding of photographic equipment preferable as we deliver GCSE and A level Photography using digital cameras, Photoshop and analogue photography with a large darkroom, which our technician will be responsible for. The successful candidate would need to be computer literate, organised, and ultimately keen to be part of a dynamic, exciting Art department.
Easthampstead Park is a vibrant school which prides itself on holding traditional values. Our school culture marries high academic expectations with excellent pastoral care and support. The concept of community is at the very heart of our vision; we believe in a three-way partnership between parents, teachers and students, and are proud of our setting and the local community. Teaching and learning drives everything we do. An action-research based approach to teaching and learning has been central to our improvement journey in recent years, and we wholeheartedly believe in investing in staff’s continued professional development in the same way that we expect our teachers to passionately invest in our students.
This is a very exciting time to join us. In recent years, we have made excellent progress, and at our last OFSTED inspection (November 2021), we were rated as ‘Good’ in all areas.
“Pupils enjoy coming to their happy and inclusive school. There is a strong ethos of mutual respect, courtesy and care for others.”
“Pupils behave well in lessons and around school. They value the educational opportunities that they receive and want to succeed. Knowing their teachers have high expectations and want the very best for them encourages pupils to take pride in their work. Pupils confidently ask for help when they need it.”
We aspire to be rated ‘Outstanding’, driven by a core belief that all of our students deserve nothing but the best possible teaching and support in order to be happy, healthy and successful.
If you feel you have the necessary skills, mindset and determination to join us on our journey towards ‘outstanding,’ we would very much like to hear from you. Visits to the school prior to application are warmly welcomed.
