We are looking to appoint a Teacher of Art and Design to join our experienced and highly successful curriculum team. The successful candidate will have a passion for working with children and young people, be creative, dynamic, enthusiastic, hardworking and demonstrate resilience – the work of a teacher is demanding!

This opportunity is open to professionals at whatever stage in their career, whether you are looking for a first appointment, a new challenge or a fresh start. More important than the discipline you are qualified in, is the portfolio and skill set that you bring that will enhance the department. In return, you will join a happy and harmonious school community that prides itself on valuing its best asset, the staff. The work-life balance of colleagues is taken very seriously by the Headteacher and both staff turn-over and absence are very low. This is a great place to work!

We offer an excellent professional development programme in-house and support colleagues to attend external training linked to their role and career ambitions. Our approach to performance management has been transformed and is now based upon self-propelled learning linked to one school priority as opposed to a series of individual targets. Whilst at our school, colleagues are expected to have a strong work ethic, they are treated as individuals and with kindness and decency.

We do not take recruitment lightly. Choosing a teacher to be responsible for so many student outcomes is taken very seriously and not ever done for the sake of filling a gap. It is really equally important to us that the right candidate chooses our school because they believe in what we are trying to achieve and the way in which we do this. The job is never done and every year we have different students arriving all with their unique personalities, aspirations and desires. We celebrate this and do whatever it takes to make sure they have the best possible memories of school but also the right academic profile.

The school is deceptively accessible within the Yorkshire and Humberside area, with colleagues travelling from as far afield as Grimsby, Leeds, York and Wakefield. The school is set in the village of Auckley and benefits from extensive grounds. New College Doncaster is situated next door where many of our young people progress to post-16.

We do encourage those interested in joining us to visit the school to get a feel for our culture and ethos. Application forms can be found on the TES vacancies section and the school website together with further information. Please contact HR Manager, Paula Kynman, 01302 770579, pky@thehayfieldschool.co.uk.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our students and an Enhanced DBS check will be required for this post. We aim for diversity within our workforce.
