Teacher of A Level Media Studies

Teacher of A Level Media Studies

Applications Close: 27th Jan 2023


For September 2023, we are looking for a dynamic A Level teacher to join a well-established and well-resourced Media team – internationally recognised as one of the biggest and best Media departments in the country.  The department comprises seven teachers and two practical teachers; there are thirteen A Level groups and over 150 students in all.  The department follows the CIE International A Level course and approaches the specification with a practical ethos, developing the students’ understanding through critical study and hands-on experience.  Contact time with students is six hours per week and support outside of lesson time is regarded as an essential supplement.  The department also runs an extracurricular Film Academy, allowing students who are interested in careers in the media to extend their experience through the production of fiction and non-fiction short films. 

Hurtwood House is one of England’s most exciting and successful schools, specialising exclusively in the Sixth Form. We have an impressive academic record, a reputation for preparing students successfully for higher education and are renowned for the quality of our pastoral care.  A culture of high expectations, creativity and professionalism permeates the school and we encourage students and staff to work in partnership to achieve the academic and personal outcomes that are important to us. 

Hurtwood House has its own generous salary scale and benefits – our staff are welcome to join students in the first class dining facilities for three meals a day and there is a staff wellbeing programme, comprising in-school sessions and membership of the local leisure centre and its facilities.  Many of our teachers become involved in managing boarding house life for accommodation or an additional allowance.  We are a member of the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.
