Strathallan School, in the heart of Perthshire, is seeking to appoint a first-rate Head of Design Technology who relates well to all children in the age range 9-18 and is passionate about learning and teaching.

The successful candidate to be an outstanding DT practitioner with significant leadership potential and demonstrable rapport with pupils and fellow staff. He or she will be keen to develop leadership qualities and improve under the guidance and direction of the Deputy Head Academic. The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic, skilled teacher with excellent subject knowledge. An ability to teach throughout the age range from 9 to 18 (GCSEs, Highers, Advanced Highers and A Levels) will be an advantage; a lack of experience with different examination codes is less important than a willingness and an ability to develop expertise and embrace new specifications with enthusiasm and energy. All Departments run clubs and societies to inspire pupils and foster academic ambition; all teachers are expected to contribute to these initiatives in some way.

We believe passionately in the all-round, balanced education that we offer and work extremely hard to balance the main priority of academic work with the social, extra-curricular and sporting opportunities that are on offer. This is not always easy, but it is central to what we do and a willingness to engage with this ethos is essential.

The expected start date for this position is April 2021. On-site accommodation may be available as part of the remuneration package.

Further role details are available from the School's website as well as the Job Information pack attached. A completed application form along with a covering letter and CV should be submitted by the closing date of Wednesday, 2 December 2020 (9.00am) to hr@strathallan.co.uk
