Drama Teacher with TLR or without TLR
Salary: Inner London (competitive based on skills and experience)
Start date: September 2022
Contract: Permanent, full time, subject to an enhanced DBS check
This is your chance to join one of the most pioneering schools in the country. We do not see drama as an add on or a luxury but central to the culture and lifeblood of the whole school. From the moment we turned assemblies into participative workshops in the round, School 21 has used drama techniques and insights to help shape the well-being and growth of every child. In combination with our unique oracy curriculum and approaches, drama has a special place at School 21, and experiential learning has become the crucial counterpart to stretching pupils’ cognition. This is your chance to join a department of skilled practitioners and take the teaching of drama to the next level.
School 21 is an all-through school and your role will offer the opportunity to teach in the middle school as well as the secondary school. The successful candidate will have a track record of guiding creative processes and achieving beautiful work. The candidate would have a strong subject knowledge and well developed skills in text, genre and ensemble work as well as using drama to develop the well-being and self-reflection of students.
We believe the teaching of drama should support students to think independently and to develop their own creative confidence as a means to making a difference to the world. Creating beautiful and expressive work is a key feature of School 21 as a whole and therefore we are looking for a highly collaborative individual who is passionate about spreading the use of creative arts approaches across the curriculum.
