The candidate will be driven to developing student engagement and involvement in the wider life of the music department.

We welcome applications from candidates who are passionate about bringing great music and music education to all young people. This is an exciting time to join the school as we continue our journey from good to great.

What we can offer you:

  • Excellent facilities and resources
  • Support and advice from a Music Subject Advisor
  • Access to an outstanding professional development programme
  • Polite, respectful, and dedicated students who want to learn and fulfil their potential
  • A respectful working environment
