Job summary

We are looking for a dynamic Head of Music who will seek to ensure that music becomes a routine feature of the culture of our school. Our whole-school curriculum model holds both music and the performing arts more generally in high esteem, and we consider them to be essential components of a broad, rich and diverse curriculum. We have recently made a considerable investment in one-to-one instrumental music tuition for every student in our current year 7 cohort (in partnership with the Havering Music School), with a view to embedding the experience and practice of music amongst our student body. This investment is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

Any applicants should have the drive to not only be an effective teacher of music and Head of Department, but also have the will and initiative to ensure that our substantial extra-curricular investment has a long-term impact on our music provision. We want to recruit a bright and enthusiastic colleague who can help plan and invest in our new model and ensure that the department grows to embody a key aspect of our curriculum.
