Thank you for showing an interest in joining the staff of The Grange School and Sports
Media Studies is a key element of our Creative and Media Faculty and is housed in a
large multi-media suite with its own dual-purpose Apple Mac computers, (which run both
Apple and Windows applications), projectors and video screens, photography facilities
and ﬁlm theatre. In addition an adjacent ICT Room with dual-purpose Apple Mac
computers is used extensively by the Creative and Media Faculty. The faculty is
supported by a technician who has extensive multi-media and photography skills and
part of their role is to work with staff and students within the Media Studies Department.
Media Studies at Key Stage 4 forms part of the Creative and Media Diploma which the
school delivers as part of the Kingswood Partnership (ﬁve local schools and the City of
Bristol College). Students specialise in either Media Studies, Art or Music within the
context of the Principal Learning element of the Diploma at Levels 1 and 2. There are six
groups for 2010/11 (3 in Year 10 and 3 in Year 11). At Key Stage 5 Media Studies AS/A
level is taught in both Year 12 and 13 and this is a popular and successful subject with
signiﬁcant numbers of students opting for this subject.
Media Studies teaching will form approximately 75% of the post holder’s timetable with
the remainder being matched to the skills and experience of the successful candidate.
We would be particularly interested in any combination of the following subject areas:
• Another Creative and Media subject, e.g. Art Drama, Dance, Music
The school has an extensive programme of support for Newly Qualiﬁed Teachers and
bespoke training for more experienced staff. Our work as part of the Kingswood
Partnership means that there are a myriad number of opportunities to work with other
colleagues in this school and across the Partnership. There are always career
development opportunities available through the school or via the Kingswood Partnership
and a core purpose of The Grange is to provide excellent learning opportunities for its
students and staff.
The Grange School and Sports College holds the International School Award and we
have links with 15 other countries, including a school in India. We put staff development
and international learning opportunities at the centre of our professional development
If you feel you would like the opportunity to become part of our team I look forward to
reading your application.
