We are seeking an inspirational teacher of Drama to join our school.

Lea Manor High School is an 11 - 16 mixed comprehensive in Luton. Our recent Ofsted in December, 2013, stated: 'Classrooms are often vibrant and stimulating environments, for example the music and drama rooms. This helps students become interested in the lessons.' 'Students behave consistently well in class. They enjoy their lessons and find the work interesting. They participate with enthusiasm in discussions. In group activities, students work positively with all their classmates, not just their best friends.'

We are seeking an inspirational teacher of Drama to join our school. Drama students at Lea Manor are very fortunate to have access to some fantastic facilities. We have a fully equipped Theatre and a Drama studio. The students thrive working in a professional environment for class work and extra-curricular activities.

We have a rich extra-curricular programme that students can choose to get involved in. Past extra- curricular events have included Christmas pantomimes, musical productions, Shakespeare Schools Festival productions, talent shows and year group showcases. The responsibilities of the students who take part in these events include performance roles, backstage and front of house roles in addition to technical support with lighting and sound.

We are beginning to build links with Luton Sixth Form College and local theatres to offer students greater opportunity to engage with the arts in a wider capacity. This will help students to consider the pathways they could follow in performing arts and will expose them to the many career opportunities within the industry.

Recently refurbished, our classrooms are colourful, innovative and have the latest ICT equipment. A state of the art theatre gives us the opportunity to develop confident young people who engage in their lessons, look to learn more and have clear aspirations. We put learning at the centre of what we do and our expectations are very high.

Everyone works as a team and this passion has given us a proven track record of success with middle leaders giving them the opportunity to develop their leadership style. Our facilities allow us to offer a subsidised gym with a swimming pool, laptops for all staff and regular specialist CPD. We would encourage you to visit us and meet our staff and students.

Lea Manor High School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the DBS.
