The ideal candidate will be able to offer art and, if full time, a subsidiary subject. Teaching is available in the Prep School (to Year 8) and Senior School (to Year 11) although experience of GCSE is not required. St Edmund’s is an expanding and successful school of 480+ girls and boys aged 2 to 16. The ability to teach across a range of art disciplines is desirable. The school participates in the Teachers’ Pension Scheme. Early applications are encouraged.

St Edmund’s is thriving with numbers the highest in its 146 year history. Average class sizes are small, circa fifteen pupils. In 2020 our students posted a 97.5% GCSE pass rate (grades 4-9) against a national average of 78%. Passes at grade 9 have risen to an impressive 24%, with 61% of passes at grades 7-9 (the old A*/A) and 92% at grades 5-9. More than a quarter of students achieved eight or more grades 7-9 and over half of candidates scored one or more grade 9.

A Regulatory Compliance inspection took place in January 2018 and the school was found to be fully compliant in all areas. A material change inspection by DfE in May 2015 rated the academic provision and planning for the senior years to be excellent.

The school was inspected by ISI in January 2014 and all academic and pastoral areas were graded “Excellent”. Extracts included: … “pupils make a high rate of progress in relation to others of similar ability. Pupils with SEND make excellent progress and achieve as well as their peers … the progress of those identified as academically able is high”; … “small class sizes enable teachers to give pupils individual feedback and support as the lesson is progressing and helps the pupils to move their learning forward”; … “relationships amongst pupils, and between pupils and staff, are excellent with high levels of respect, understanding and regard for each other”; … “The teaching demonstrates the teacher’s secure subject knowledge, using clear learning objectives. It exhibits fun, pace and challenge and an imaginative range of methods is used to keep pupils interested and engaged”; … “Pupils’ high levels of achievement are attained largely as a result of the excellent teaching that is highly effective in promoting pupils’ rapid progress.” The full report is available via our website.

Closing date: Friday 5 March 2021.

Applications by email are preferred and interviews will take place in mid-March.

Please note that the school takes very seriously its responsibility for safeguarding the children in its care and the successful applicant will be required to undergo enhanced CRB/DBS vetting.
