Head of Design Technology

Date Posted: Sunday 31 December 2023

Vacancy Type: Full-Time

Closing date for application: 18/01/2024

Interview date: 24/01/2024

We are looking for an outstanding leader and teacher to take on the role of Head of DT across the School (3-13).

The successful candidate will be responsible for the smooth day to day running of all aspects of this thriving department which forms part of a broader Creative Arts team and, whilst having the autonomy to lead the direction of this popular subject, will benefit from the support and camaraderie of a wider team of like-minded subject leads.

The post-holder will be expected to teach Years 5-8, whilst being involved in the development of relevant skills and knowledge in the younger pupils and will be expected to play a full part in the life of this busy day and boarding school, which could include exciting opportunities with our partnership schools.

The role is likely to suit a talented, motivated, hard-working teacher who loves prep school life and who is looking for a hugely enjoyable and fulfilling role. All applicants, however, will be considered on the character of the individual applying and their fit to our school, rather than purely on the experience they have.

This is a hugely exciting and varied role for an outstanding Head of DT who wants to further his or her career in a fun and exciting environment.

The deadline for applications is: 9am on Thursday, 18th January.

Interviews will be held on: Wednesday, 24th January
