Director of Art

Surrey
Boys (10- 18)
Day
Trinity School

We wish to appoint an outstanding Director of Art to lead this strong and vibrant department. The successful person will be a well-qualified, committed and inspiring teacher who is prepared to play a full part in the promotion of Art & Photography.

Trinity School is an HMC independent day school with c.1000 students, aged 10 - 18. The school is all boys up to Year 11 but since September 2011 we have welcomed girls into a thriving co-educational Sixth Form.

The formal aims of the School are described fully on our website, but at the heart of our day-to-day work there are four particular strengths that are key to our ethos, and these enable our students both to thrive in their time at school and to become the young people we hope they will be:

• Caring deeply: every individual must feel known, valued and supported in our school community;

• Exceptional learning: our teachers are outstanding and our curriculum is challenging;

• Joining in: participation and excellence matter equally, across a rich array of activities;

• Looking outwards: we are committed to our students engaging meaningfully with the world beyond school.

Art is taught to all pupils from Junior Year (Year 6) to Second Year (Year 8) in classes of 15-22 pupils. Students then have the opportunity to choose an alternative subject in the creative/humanities block if they wish. Art is a popular subject and most boys continue with art until the Third Year (Year 9) enjoying a mixed media curriculum of materials and art theory. Students can choose to study either Photography or Art at GCSE where we currently have 45 boys for the academic year 2018/19. At A level boys and girls can choose to study both Photography and Art.
