Do you want to teach the next generation of budding thespians? Well, you're in the right place!

As the drama teacher, you will be responsible for guiding school students through some of the most important stages of their education, including their GCSEs and A-levels.

Indeed, you'll also be responsible for marking students' work and providing them with the necessary feedback, criticism, encouragement and support.

You'll also be responsible for:

Planning and delivering high quality lessons
Helping students prepare for crucial examinations and directing final performances, which will be watched and assessed by an external moderator.
Getting the opportunity to take part in events and projects outside of the classroom, such as taking pupils on theatre trips.

The essential criteria for this position is:

- UK Qualified Teacher Status (or equivalent)

- A degree in a relevant subject

- A passion for Drama and a desire to ensure every student is supported in their learning
