We are seeking to appoint a motivated qualified teacher specialising in Art working with KS3/4 with the ability to support KS5 to join our friendly and support team from September 2022. The successful candidate will be working in small groups and one-to-one with students.

Our school is part of Ivetsey Bank Hospital which caters for up to 37 young people aged 12 to 18 years old being treated in an inpatient Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (Tier 4 CAMHs). 

In our recent Ofsted inspection we were rated good. Our students enjoy school; one of our students said:

"I like doing schoolwork – it acts as a break away from the fact that you are in hospital; it is probably the most normal part of being an inpatient"

Staff have high expectations of students and they gently encourage them to try their best in every lesson. Students consider that the belief and constant encouragement from staff really helps their recovery

You will join a supportive and experienced team of dedicated education and support staff. Full training and development will be provided along with a bespoke induction programme and the ability to network with teachers from our other school site. With the support of colleagues, you will develop the skills, confidence and experience to deal with the challenging but rewarding environment within a specialist field.

The successful applicant should have a passion and commitment for providing creative and high quality learning experiences, be responsible for teaching on a small group basis, designing and implementing a programme of study. With a dynamic and inclusive approach you will have high expectations for our students and the drive to help them achieve the best possible learning outcomes.  As a skilled teacher you will have an empathic approach and the ability to be flexible and adapt to individual needs.

Our Benefits Include:

  • A rewarding career where you will be valued as a key member of our team
  • Refer a Friend Bonus - you can receive a bonus for introducing a friend to come and work for us
