Lead Teacher of Music
Location: Barnet, London — a five minute walk from High Barnet tube station
Start: September 2022

Opportunity for an exceptional teacher to lead our Music Department, shaping a new Ark secondary school as we embark on Key Stage 4

In September 2019, Ark Pioneer, a non-selective secondary school, opened its doors to our brand new building in Barnet and welcomed in our first year 7. By the time these pupils reach year 13, we’ll have over a thousand pupils. Our school is focused on delivering a standard of education matching the very best schools in the country. Our vision is that every pupil leaves Ark Pioneer with real options, be it embarking on the university course of their choice or starting out in their chosen career.

We are recruiting a team of exceptional staff to achieve our vision and work together to create a genuinely outstanding school. Music is incredibly important to our school life; almost a quarter of pupils learn an instrument in school during the day, we have ensembles and young artists participating and performing at network events and we were very proud to be awarded a Music Mark this year for our team’s work to shape music provision at Pioneer. This is also an exciting time to join the team as we launch our Key Stage 4 provision next year. The new Music Lead will plan our offer to ensure we promote inclusion and joy in the learning of music as well as supporting our elite musicians and singers. We will develop every teacher that joins our team, providing one-to-one support, coaching and mentoring and access to extensive network training.

The ideal candidate will
• Have a strong academic background, with good A Levels or equivalent, and a good degree
• Combine subject matter expertise with a passion for teaching music
• Share the Ark Pioneer vision and be aligned with the six pillars underpinning it
• Value and support practices driving continued progress across the network of Ark schools.

Please submit your application by 9am on Monday 23rd May. For further information, a confidential discussion or any technical queries please contact c.conces@arkpioneer.org and our Principal will be in touch with you.

Closing Date: 9am on Monday 23rd May
Interviews: Week beginning Monday 23rd May
Salary: ARK MPS £30,663 - £42,166 / UPS £44,264 - £47,601
