What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint a highly motivated, enthusiastic and inspirational teacher to join the Music department here at Queen Elizabeth’s High School on a temporary basis to cover maternity leave. The successful candidate will need to be able to teach Music up to A Level. Please indicate your preference of part time or full time hours on your application form.

What the school offers its staff

The Arts Faculty (consisting of the Music, Art and Drama departments) is a lively, innovative and outward-facing faculty with staff and students who are passionate about and talented in their subjects. The faculty has been awarded the Platinum Artsmark for the second time, becoming the first school in the East Midlands to hold a double-Platinum Award. The Arts are well supported by the wider school.

There is a willingness amongst the staff and students to try new things and projects. Subject knowledge is strong across the faculty with specialist teachers. A high degree of enthusiasm for Music is shown by both students and staff, and this enthusiasm and passion shown by staff is recognised and hugely appreciated by our students.

Music is located in the self-contained Music Block in Upper School, including a recital room, two classrooms (one with 33 computers with Sibelius software), an instrument store, music office and staff-base, and five practice rooms.
