  • Permanent
  • Required September 2021

Are you an inspirational teacher with a passion for Art? 

We are looking for an exceptional Teacher of Art with a proven track record of delivering results by inspiring students and staff. This is an exciting opportunity if you want to join a School on an ambitious journey of transformation and you would like to use your experience, subject expertise and vision to make a difference.


About the role:

This is an opportunity to join a faculty which is both ambitious and innovative and for you to play a key role in its future success and aspirational goals. The Performing Arts Faculty has a strong commitment to providing high quality learning opportunities across the School and to ensuring all students engage with the curriculum and are able to achieve beyond their own expectations. Your passion, talent and vision will combine with cutting edge approaches to teaching to foster confidence and enthusiasm in our students, helping them overcome any barriers to learning. This exciting role will not only allow you to teach across the full age range but also actively shape and develop the curriculum for our students. You will be joining a School which invests in all its staff through subject specific CPD, its close links with lead schools and one that places great emphasis on its own programme of professional growth. This is a position that will offer you a platform to make a real difference both to our students and the staff you will inspire.


About you:

We wish to appoint an ambitious individual with high expectations and the ability to articulate and deliver on a vision of success in Art. As an outstanding practitioner, you will work with a team of talented and dedicated teachers to promote excellent teaching and learning across the faculty and the continued development of the curriculum in line with the School’s strategic objectives. With a real commitment to quality improvement, you will be able to closely monitor student progress to support individual achievement. You must be extremely motivated, be able to demonstrate excellent professional standards and develop strategies to inspire both staff and students to excel. 


About us:

The School is part of the BePART Educational Trust which was set up by Birkenhead Sixth Form College, an Ofsted Outstanding post-16 specialist, recently awarded TES Sixth Form College of the Year. The School and the College work together collaboratively to share and develop educational best practice and create an inspiring culture with opportunities for career development. The Birkenhead Park School aims to achieve “Ambition and Excellence for All” and we are committed to providing the best possible education for every student. The School is driven by the values of Positivity, Ambition, Resilience, and Thoughtfulness, and building character is seen as a fundamental priority in securing our students’ future success.

In May 2017, Ofsted recognised the significant progress the School has made in its journey of transformation. This has been further confirmed by our 2019 Ofsted inspection:

•    “Leaders’ actions are having a positive effect on pupils’ achievement in their GCSE examinations.”
•    “Leaders have designed curriculums to allow pupils to build on earlier learning”
•    “Since the previous inspection, leaders have acted to improve the quality of education for pupils.”

Full report:
In addition to the opportunities for career development offered through the BePART Educational Trust, we are the only school on the Wirral to be working in partnership with The Ambition Institute. This exciting initiative is focused on developing our staff through high quality bespoke training that will support career development and offer a progression pathway to expertise.
