What skills and experience we're looking for

If you are a talented and creative Teacher of Music, why not join our committed, dynamic and friendly team? With passion and knowledge for your subject, you will inspire, motivate and challenge young people of all abilities to strive to be the best that they can be. In return, you’ll be able to develop your skills and expertise, working with a school that is committed to ongoing professional development.

What the school offers its staff

Gillotts aims to maximise achievement through effective and inspiring teaching, so if you share these values and would like to join this supportive and high-achieving school, we’d like to hear from you. Visits to the school are encouraged.

Further details about the role

Music is part of our Performing Arts team, working alongside Drama. There are two music teachers, each with a specialist room and adjacent practice rooms. The team is support by an Arts Technician. In years 7-9, students receive three hours of music teaching each fortnight and there is consistently one GCSE group each year. The extra-curricular offer is core to the school’s culture with activities such as Musical Theatre, Ukulele Club and Clarinet Choir adding to the diversity of opportunity. The ability to provide piano accompaniment for concerts and GCSE performances and a working knowledge of music technology (currently Sibelius and Cubase) would both be desirable, but not essential.

Commitment to safeguarding

This school is committed to safeguarding, promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All staff are expected to promote fundamental British values. Successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks along with other relevant employment checks.

Gillotts is a school that takes great pride in its unique identity. It is one of four mixed 11-16 schools in south-east Oxfordshire and occupies a 33 acre site on the edge of Henley-on-Thames. Its 900 students come from Henley and the surrounding villages. The site incorporates a Victorian house as well as extensive grounds, both of which contribute to the school’s special character. As a high-performing school, Gillotts places innovation in teaching and learning at the heart of its development. However, more than this, the school is developing its thinking and practices to ensure that each student’s experience of the school is tailored to his or her needs. At the centre of this is the tutoring system, which puts each child in a group of about twenty students of mixed age. The tutors monitor the academic progress of each of their tutees, and work with them to develop their learning skills.
