Assistant Director of Drama with English

Full time from September 2017

Competitive salary and benefits

This exciting opportunity within Queen’s College is for an excellent teacher of English and Drama who wishes to continue to teach across both subject areas (approximately half their lessons with each department).

They would contribute to both departments as a member of the department, but also as Assistant Director of Drama they would take responsibility for the administration of the GCSE and A Level exams within the Drama department.

The successful candidate will be a passionate, confident and successful teacher of English Language and Literature to at least GCSE level and of Drama to A Level. Ideally they would have knowledge of the new GCSE English specifications.

Our English department is a well-organised department of highly experienced, enthusiastic individuals who share a common love of written and spoken English. As a school we have recently introduced the accelerated reader programme to cement reading as a vital skill to education.  At GCSE we follow the AQA specifications for both English and English Literature.

English is taught in a suite of classrooms each equipped with the latest ICT technology. There is an extensive range of prose, poetry and drama specifically selected for each age group, including classic fiction and contemporary award-winning texts and reading.

The Drama department delivers a programme in Years 7, 8 and 9 to all pupils and then becomes a popular option at GCSE and A-level. We currently follow the EDUQAS syllabuses and achieve outstanding results.

Although the academic course is geared towards the study of drama, the highlight for most Drama pupils is still the practical work. A2 and AS productions and GCSE performances are of an extraordinarily high standard, with many pupils opting to be assessed for design elements including set, costume, lighting and sound, resulting in polished performances with very high production values.  

Drama facilities are excellent. The Queen’s Hall theatre seats 575 and is at the heart of the school. It is used throughout the year for College productions and a programme of visiting professional productions as well as numerous house concerts and revues. 

The Performing Arts Centre (PAC) seats 120 and is used for day-to-day dance and drama teaching and for smaller productions and presentations. The purpose–built Drama Studio is a black-box studio with raked seating for 75 and is the teaching space and venue for most of the GCSE and A Level Drama performances.

Queen’s enjoys an enviable reputation for drama productions giving opportunities to pupils from all year groups. There are three major productions each year - the Senior play/musical in December, the Dance Show in February and the Middle School play/musical in May.

Accommodation may be available in a tutor’s flat in one of the boarding houses.
