Fixed Term contract to cover for maternity leave, Full-time Post from January 2022
We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, experienced and enthusiastic Teacher of Drama to join a small and hard-working department. The successful candidate will demonstrate an ability both to sustain the high levels set for public exam results and to foster the lively life of the subject outside the classroom.
The Department is well-resourced and strives to stimulate a love of theatre through creative teaching, competitions, clubs and societies and theatre trips. Major productions take place throughout the year, including at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Applicants should be able to teach Drama across the age range up to GCSE and A Level. The post is as suitable for experienced teachers as it is for those new to the profession, who would participate in our highly regarded Schools Direct programme. A proactive culture of supporting and developing talented and inspiring teachers is supported by the Senior Management Team.
Staff will be encouraged to contribute fully to the co-curricular life of the School and this is reflected in the salary offered. A strong commitment to the pastoral and house system is also anticipated. Accommodation may be available. Assistance is offered towards removal expenses.
We welcome applications from all parts of our community as we aspire to attract staff that matches the social and cultural diversity of our student intake.
