Drama is a popular and well-established subject at St Andrews and we are looking for an experienced and inspiring teacher to join the team. Class sizes are small and the students are motivated and enthusiastic, enjoying a lively approach to the subject through a wide range of teaching and learning techniques. The ideal candidate will convey enthusiasm for the subject and contribute collaboratively in the continued development of the curriculum from Year 7 to Year 13.
Drama is currently taught in two purpose built studios, but August 2017 will be a very exciting time to join St Andrews, as we open our new 11-18 Campus which includes both purpose built studios and a well-equipped Theatre. All students study Drama in Key Stage 3, with curriculum based on the National Curriculum, but adapted to reflect both our location in South-East Asia and the international nature of our students. Drama and Theatre Arts are also popular subjects at IGCSE and IB, and previous experience teaching one or both of these courses would be a significant advantage.
The position would also involve some English teaching, in Key Stage 3 and/or Key Stage 4. Like Drama, the Key Stage 3 English schemes of work are adapted from the National Curriculum and these lead to both IGCSE English Language and IGCSE Literature in Years 10 and 11. Previous experience teaching English at Key Stages 3 and 4 would be a significant advantage.
At St Andrews, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive school, and have an excellent reputation for supporting children with special educational needs. Experience of teaching children with dyslexia, mild autism, ADHD etc. would be very good prior experience for a teacher wishing to join our team. Our Mission Statement commits us to meeting ‘all the needs of the individual learner’, and this applies equally to those students targeting the very highest grades at IGCSE and IB.
All Humanities classrooms have data projectors, interactive whiteboards and access to the internet, and there is a strong commitment to integrating the teaching and use of ICT skills into all areas of the curriculum, where appropriate, with laptop carts, iPads and ICT labs bookable when required. As well as their teaching, all teachers are also expected to contribute positively to both the school’s pastoral systems and the extra-curricular programme, offering an Extra-Curricular Activity that either supports or extends the students’ learning in their subject area, or from another area of personal interest.
If you would like to apply for a position at our school please complete the application process through Jobtrain, accessible via the Nord Anglia Education website. If you require any further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for applications is Friday 2nd December 2016.
