Director of Drama

Required for September 2020 or January 2021.
Closing date: 6pm, Wednesday 8 April 2020.

Wellington College is one of the world’s leading co-educational boarding and day schools and has an enviable reputation for excellence and innovation. We’re currently looking for a Director of Drama to take on a role that will ensure we uphold our proud drama tradition.

Superbly resourced, with exceptional technical facilities and professional performance spaces, the College’s Drama department enjoys being at the cultural hub of the school. Drama is a very popular subject and is taught throughout the College from Years 9–13. Students not only benefit from the opportunity to learn, but to exhibit and perform in our state-of-the-art facilities too. Join us, and you could soon be playing a vital role as a teacher, practitioner, line manager and administrator. 

Responsible for teaching and overseeing all areas of Drama and Theatre study, this challenging role encompasses all aspects of co-curricular Drama. In addition to general teaching duties, you’ll need to put together productions that continue to be of the highest quality and add depth, breadth and insight to every pupil’s education. 

Indeed, we’ll rely on you to ensure that our Drama programme touches the lives of all Wellingtonians and promotes a lifelong passion for the Arts. We’ll also count on you to oversee managing a budget, planning an annual programme or contributing to the extra curricular and pastoral life of the college.

To succeed, you’ll need a good level degree in a related subject and thorough knowledge of the (13–18) subject Curriculum – GCSE/IGCSE and A Level. You’ll also need evidence of involvement in extra-curricular activities (professional, amateur or voluntary) and a track record of managing change and improvement. 

Not only is this an excellent career development opportunity, it also comes with a generous salary and benefits package too. So, if you’re a well-organised and self-motivated team player with a sharp and progressive vision of the subject and the ability to deliver inspirational and informative lessons and put on amazing productions, apply today. 

Closing date: 6pm, Wednesday 8 April 2020.
Interviews will take place: w/c 20 April 2020.
