We are in the enviable position of having a vacancy in our Drama Curriculum Area and would be happy to appoint either: an experienced outstanding teacher of drama who is ambitious to take the next step in their career and lead our curriculum area with a TLR 2b; or an outstanding newly qualified teacher of drama who wants to work in an outstanding school with the opportunity to learn, grow and develop over the next few years with the potential to then take on the leadership of the curriculum area. Therefore, we are inviting applications from both groups of people.
