Art Teacher

Working at Manchester Hospital School is incredibly rewarding. It’s also complex and sometimes challenging. But you can see the difference you make to young people and their families, on a daily basis.

Art Teacher
Main to Upper Pay Scales with SEN 1 point

Start date: September
One year fixed-term contract


We now have an opportunity for a talented Art Teacher to join our team. You will predominantly be teaching children in our hospital sites, but you may also undertake some lessons in children’s homes and in other community settings in the Manchester area.

Because of the unique nature of our school we encourage applications from teachers working in a Secondary or Special School setting: either of these would be a relevant professional background. However, staff need to be able to plan for SEND learners and plan bespoke timetables for individual pupils.

Wherever you are currently, it’s your commitment to delivering high quality and personalised teaching that will identify you as a strong candidate to join our team.

It’s important that you bring a flexible and practically-minded approach to your work. It’s possible that you will work across more than one of our sites in any given week and you can expect to teach in a range of settings e.g. working with groups or on a one-to-one basis. The ability to think creatively and adapt to different learning environments will be key.

This role is anticipated to be a full-time appointment, but we will consider part-time arrangements for the best candidates.

All our teaching roles are offered at Main to Upper Pay Scales with SEN 1 point.

Visit the apply page to register your details and access full details of the role and the recruitment process.

Manchester Hospital School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, younger learners and vulnerable adults and we expect all staff and volunteers to share the same commitment. We follow safer recruitment procedures and all posts will be subject to enhanced DBS checks, satisfactory references and will be exempt from the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.

These posts are also subject to satisfactory references, proof of right to work in the UK in accordance with the Asylum and Immigration Act 1996 and other pre-employment checks where applicable.

We are an Equal Opportunities Employer and we positively welcome applications from all candidates regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
