Teacher of Music job summary

Kingsmead is a large, oversubscribed school that, despite serving a postcode in the top 20% most deprived parts of England:

  • Has an ambitious curriculum, with almost an almost exclusively GCSE KS4 and A Level KS5, aiming for 90% EBacc while also having a performing a visual arts specialism.
  • A track record of above average progress scores in spite of the challenge posed by such an ambitious curriculum.
  • Exceptional behaviour, with a consistent approach that combines explicit boundaries with the space to build relationships and support those children who need it.
  • A thoughtfully constructed wider school experience for the children, with an ambitious combination of clubs, trips, careers guidance and wider enrichment.

The Music Department consists of three teaching staff and nine peripatetic staff. The music department is proud to offer a rich range of extra-curricular activities for students including; Orchestra, String group, Jazz band and many more! We run three concerts a year; Autumn, Spring and Summer performances. We also put on a whole school production every two years, with this year, in December, being our whole school production of ‘Beauty and the Beast’.

At KS3 we aim to develop student’s musicianship and understanding of music through a wide variety of topics and genres, exploring both context and features of the music. Students learn to play the keyboards to strengthen their understanding of the musical topics studied. KS4 music is an optional subject open to any student based on their interest and commitment. The Kingsmead music department offers both Music and Music Technology at A-Level, offering students every opportunity to further their musical careers and interests.

Kingsmead is a large, mixed, oversubscribed school – easily accessible from both central London and surrounds – with loyal staff, an established standing in the community and a very strong track record. We are consistently above average in Progress 8 and A Level value added, with high Ebacc entry and a wide range of options at KS4 and KS5. Those outcomes are built on a calm, purposeful and collaborative atmosphere.

Despite the school’s size and standing, the Headteacher was appointed relatively young after experience of leading for a high-performing academy chain and in one of the most successful London boroughs. He has restarted the school culture and approach over the last few years and is determined to push it forward from being in the top 20% nationally to being somewhere where things are achieved others do not think possible.
