TEACHER OF DRAMA
Our students are amazing. They are intelligent, articulate, funny, welcoming and appreciative of great teaching. They deserve the best and we are passionate about making sure that this is what they receive, in every subject, every day of their school lives.
We are looking to appoint an excellent Drama and Communication teacher to complement our fantastic Arts team. The locality of Barton is well known for its vibrant arts scene and in the school the Arts team is recognised for its outstanding teaching and outcomes. Last year, results from this department were in the top 1% of the country, so we are hoping to find someone who shares this passion for delivering inspiring lessons, excellent outcomes and engaging extra-curricular activities. The Arts team comprises Art, Music, Photography, Graphics and Dance teachers as well as the Drama department and regularly showcases student achievements in exhibitions, performances and productions. Drama also works closely with the English department to develop the oracy and communication skills our students need to make language powerful.
In November 2016 we moved into our brand-new state-of-the-art campus, which comprises Baysgarth School, Headway Alternative Provision, and Baysgarth Sports Village. The school has risen quickly to become one of the top performing schools in the region, achieving top 5% outcomes for CVA Progress 8 for three years running and the highest four-year Progress 8 average of all the local schools. We are oversubscribed in Year 7 every year which reflects the first-class facilities we have on site as well as our fantastic students and staff who make the school a great place to learn. We pride ourselves on achieving outstanding outcomes in a school with an inclusive ethos that has superb pastoral care and a strong commitment to staff mental health and work-life balance.
Baysgarth School is an 11-16 comprehensive with approximately 850 pupils on roll, a number that will rise to over 1000 in the next few years. The successful candidate will be expected to have pride, passion, positivity and vision and a desire to ensure the school has the highest possible reputation in the local community and beyond.
Baysgarth School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to apply for enhanced disclosure from the DBS.
If you are inspired by the challenge and responsibility of this opportunity, we would like to hear from you. Further details and an application form can be downloaded below or requested from the school. If you would like to discuss any aspect of the post, please feel free to contact the Head Teacher, Richard Briggs.
