  • Reference: 6250
  • Required as soon as possible


Copleston High School is a popular 11-18 mixed comprehensive noted for its caring and disciplined atmosphere. It was judged as a 'Good School' by Ofsted in January 2018. As a school, we are committed to raising standards of learning and teaching within all subject areas. You will be impressed by the behaviour, ethos and outcomes of students across the school.

We are now seeking to appoint a colleague who is enthusiastic and well-qualified, with a real love for teaching and learning, and an ability to convey this to pupils and staff alike. This is an excellent opportunity for either a newly qualified or more experienced teacher to join a successful and experienced department, in a warm and supportive school, which values the contributions and ideas of all stakeholders and strives for high achievement for all of its pupils.

Art is taught throughout the school. All students in Years 7 and 8 study art, and in Year 9 students begin GCSE Art, if they've chosen to continue studying the subject. Art and Design (Edexcel) is offered to students at both GCSE and A level, and you should be prepared to teach art at both KS4 and KS5.

Creative risk taking and managing the challenge of new concepts in art and design are department strengths. An ability to teach (or experience with) Ceramics and Photography is desirable, but not essential. You should be willing to develop teaching skills in these areas.

1819 students (includes 311 in the Sixth Form)
