Queen Margaret’s is an independent boarding and day school for girls aged 11-18, located in glorious parkland, six miles south of York. Established in 1901, the school is proud of its traditions and Anglican foundation, whilst being forward thinking. Strong in the Arts, Humanities and Sciences, QM girls achieve outstanding academic results while receiving an all-round education. Art, dance, drama, music and sport are all strengths and girls are encouraged to be involved in these and many other enrichment activities.

History of Art sits within the History Department. Pupils are taught at A Level only.

We say to girls who express an interest in History of Art: “This subject teaches us to look in radically different ways at the material culture which surrounds us, from the Fine Arts through to expressions of popular culture. From this we can develop a vivid understanding of history. The subject provides skills which are valuable far beyond the classroom. You do not need to have studied this subject before, but you should certainly have a passion for the visual arts. Art History is a Humanities subject and as such is most similar to English or History. The subject requires a significant amount of reading and teaches the skills of critical analysis and essay writing.”

We say to you, if you are an inspirational teacher, with a real passion for your subject, who wishes to join a team that is ambitious for our pupils please let us have an application. You will be very welcome to join us.

We currently follow the Edexcel History of Art Course. In 2020 all pupils were awarded a grade within bands A* to B.

We seek an inspirational teacher to deliver this course with immediate effect. The ability to teach Philosophy and Ethics would be a significant advantage.

Interviews will be held week commencing 28 September 2020
