Teacher of Performing Arts

We require a full time Teacher of Performing Arts.

We will consider applicants who can offer Dance and ideally Drama at KS4. A willingness to deliver both at KS3 would be an advantage, but not essential. Support and training would be available if necessary.

The Performing Arts is a successful curriculum area at Tiverton High School and we are looking to appoint a dynamic and highly motivated teacher to join an enthusiastic forward thinking team.

All students follow a Performing Arts curriculum in Year 7; Dance, Drama and Music as discrete subjects in Year 8, and all three subjects are well established in KS4. Both Dance and Drama are delivered in well-resourced studio spaces with a professional community theatre space used for regular school productions and showcases. We have a flourishing extra curricula and enrichment programme.

Tiverton High School is an innovative and successful school situated within easy reach of Exmoor and the North Devon coast. We have over 1100 students aged 11-16 on role and have a genuinely comprehensive intake. Our philosophy is grounded on the belief that ‘we are here to help children succeed: it’s that simple’.

We are a cooperative trust school and have recently joined a formal federation with Heathcoat Primary and Rackenford C of E Primary School.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. An enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check is required for this post.

If you are willing to go the extra mile and share our ambition to provide an outstanding education to fantastic children, then we would welcome your application.

Visits to the school are warmly welcomed and encouraged, please contact us on 01884 256655 to arrange this.
