Staff Vacancies

Teacher of Drama and Theatre Studies

Applications Close: 11th Mar 2022


For September 2022, we are looking for a dynamic A Level teacher to join a well-established and well-resourced Theatre team – internationally recognised as one of the biggest and best Theatre departments in the country. The department comprises nine teachers and three technicians; there are fourteen A Level groups and over 130 students in all. The department follows the EdExcel A Level course and approaches the specification with a collaborative ethos: sharing classes, combining groups for workshops and providing collective feedback on practical work so that students learn from each other, as well as their teachers. Contact time with students is six hours per week and support outside of lesson time is regarded as an essential supplement. We have a small group of Foundation students who are following the CIE IGCSE Drama course and the ability to contribute to this course would be a significant advantage.

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.

Closing Date: Friday 11 March 2022
