Full job description


Are you interested in developing your own work alongside young artists? Are you an enthusiastic communicator who is passionate about their own practice? We are seeking a high-quality fine artist specialising in drawing, painting, sculpture, performance, or printmaking to inspire and engage our students in their creative processes.

We are a vibrant art department within an outstanding HMC school with an exemplary reputation for academic results, innovation and pastoral care. Bromley High School is an academically selective girls’ school with over 900 pupils from 4-18 and is a member of the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST). We are within easy reach of trains to London Victoria, London Charing Cross and London Bridge.

You will be encouraged to make use of our wonderful resources: 25-acre grounds, intaglio presses, two kilns and a darkroom and photography studio. However, our best assets are our hardworking, friendly and polite students who are, without exception, a delight to work with.

The Opportunity:

We would like an artist to work alongside our students for five days, producing work in response to the environment and informally talking through your creative process while you work alongside our students. You would also be required to give three workshops: student groups would include a group of Art Scholars, GCSE and A-Level students.

Payment would be £1000 for 5 days. We would prefer this to be over one week although it can be flexible for the right person. We can also provide you with simple materials. Working hours would be school hours of 8.30am-4pm.

High-quality artists working in any medium will be considered for the position. Starting dates for both positions are flexible for the right person, although we would prefer May 2024.

You will be an independent, self-employed contractor and will be fully responsible for your own taxation and will need to hold your own public liability insurance (£1M).


Applications must be received by 8.00am on Tuesday 16th April 2024.

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 23rd April 2024.

The GDST is committed to diversity, inclusion and real change: a family where every individual is valued, respected and included.

We are committed to the safeguarding of children and child protection screening will apply to this post.

A leading GDST and HMC girls’ school with superb facilities spread across a leafy 25-acre site, Bromley High School educates approximately 870 girls from pre-prep to Sixth Form.

The school’s academic results are consistently excellent earning a rare ‘Exceptional’ rating for Learning and Achievement from the Independent Schools’ Inspectorate. Achievement at A-level in 2022 was 34% A*s, 68% A*-A and 91% A*-B.

Bromley High girls are resilient and well-rounded young women participating with enthusiasm and commitment in music, drama, art, sport, Duke of Edinburgh and an overabundant range of activities – and where they have interest or talent or enthusiasm, it is nurtured so that they learn to excel.

As the first all girls’ All-Steinway School in the world, the school continually invests in the music department, and offers its own Musician in Residence and specialist music wing. In 2020, the school launched a Steinway Scholarship and Mentoring Scheme offer the winning recipient coaching sessions throughout the year, a masterclass from a Steinway artist at Steinway Hall, private lessons with a Steinway artist and a solo recital at Steinway Hall. In 2021, the school’s first ever Steinway Scholar won a place to read Music at Oxford.

Sport is also exceptional: with 25 acres of top class facilities including a beautiful pool, new fitness suite, sports hall, gym, track and floodlit courts and pitches, providing the perfect environment in which to develop girls’ love of sport. Bromley High School has achieved huge successes in sport at regional and national level. The school’s under 16 team reached the National Hockey finals and were placed 3rd in the country and in 2021, Year 12 pupil Evie Davis won two gold medals with Team GB at the European Swimming Championships.

Pastoral Care is of paramount importance at Bromley High and the school offers an outstanding supportive and caring pastoral system. In 2021, the excellence of the school’s pastoral care was recognised by the Wellbeing Award for Schools.

Bromley High School provides a beautiful and vibrant environment where bright girls flourish.
