At Kenton we are passionate about providing the very best education possible for young people in our city, our region and nationally and our strong and committed team share our vision of ensuring all our students not only reach their potential but that they are confident, happy and resilient students who treat each other with compassion and respect.

We are extremely committed to ensuring all our students receive a broad and balanced curriculum with the Arts at the heart of our curriculum. In recent Ofsted reports student achievement and teaching and learning in the Arts were a central focus and highly praised, with the school being recognised as a beacon for the Arts in the North East. Kenton School is a Gold Artsmark School on a two-year journey to Platinum accreditation and shortlisted as TES Creative School of the Year 2019 and the Art team is currently shortlisted by Pearson National Teaching Awards for FE Team of the Year.

The Art department at Kenton School is a highly skilled, enthusiastic and forward-looking team comprising of six talented Art specialists supported by our own technician. In addition to our five general purpose Art studios, two Graphics Studios, darkroom and photography suites we also have a superbly equipped Ceramics studio and two fully equipped Textiles studios.

We are seeking applications for two fixed term posts, the first as a Teacher of Art and the second to cover a maternity leave teaching Art and Art Graphics. Both posts will be for 1 year and are open to both newly qualified teachers and experienced teachers looking for an exciting new challenge.

If you are the person we are looking for, you will possess a proven track record of effective training or teaching practice underpinned by a passion for the subject, broad base of subject knowledge and the ability to apply a range of teaching and learning strategies. You will possess the ability to work effectively with all students, engaging them through exciting yet challenging lessons and embedding a culture of positive behaviour for learning. But most importantly you will be committed to our school ethos of ‘all different, all equal,’ instilling high expectations in all our students to enable them to achieve their potential regardless of the barriers they face.
