Teacher of Dance

Permanent from September 2019 – (MPS/UPS)

Hardenhuish School is an 11-18 co-educational comprehensive school set in the magnificent parkland of the former Hardenhuish Manor and Chippenham Grammar School. We enjoy an outstanding reputation locally and nationally as a ‘High Performing Academy’. Exam results are consistently above the national average.  At Hardenhuish we put children at the center of all we do: we believe in a three way partnership with school, home and the individual, ensuring that each and every young person is ‘inspired to learn, supported to succeed’.

We wish to appoint a well-qualified, motivated and innovative full-time teacher of Dance, who possesses a passion for their subject and is committed to inspiring pupils to develop.  The appointed candidate will have an ambition for excellence and a desire to make lessons engaging, varied, rigorous and relevant for today.   The ability to teach PE and/or a second specialism is essential.

Our new teacher of Dance will join a vibrant team of talented performing arts colleagues who are committed to providing every child with the support, tools and capacity to make excellent progress from their starting point. You would be working in our purpose built dance studio, with excellent resources complete with mirrors, harlequin floor, speakers and lighting rig.  In addition, the department has ready access to an adjourning school hall as a teaching space and dedicated classrooms with access to ICT suites, laptops and Ipads.

You would have the advantage of outstanding CPD provision, an established and successful NQT programme (if appropriate), potential for in-house career progression, regular staff-wellbeing events and access to a generous benefit package through Wiltshire Rewards.

Applications are welcome from experienced teachers or NQTs.
