What skills and experience we're looking for

The Music Department has developed a strong reputation for excellent teaching and learning which has resulted in excellent results, and a significant number of students studying Music who subsequently go on to study music at leading universities. The Music Department has developed a curriculum which is innovative and focused on developing students’ lifelong love of learning, as well as achieving outstanding examination success.

The Music team is constantly seeking ways to improve and engages with educational research to develop the curriculum to equip our students with the substantive, disciplinary and procedural knowledge and opportunities for success to allow them to take the next step with confidence.

The Music Department operates across both Tonbridge and Sevenoaks campuses. Much development has gone into enhancing the facilities, with keyboards, computers and recording facilities available at both campuses and excellent access to online resources.

We have an outstanding extra-curricular provision which has resulted in recent performances at Cadogan Hall, the Chapel of St. Augustine and the E.M. Forster Theatre. The department regularly visits concert halls in London, particularly the Royal Festival Hall and the Barbican, as well as organizing trips to musicals throughout the academic year. We also have a thriving band program which has resulted in success at Battle of the Bands competitions.

To provide an outstanding learning experience for students, allowing them to fulfil their potential through the provision of excellent teaching, support and guidance.

All teachers are leaders of learning and are committed to delivering the school’s vision and the high ambitions for the school’s future. Their proactive support leads to sustained improvements and raised standards across the organisation, as a member of the Music Department and tutor teams. They are accountable for specific identified and agreed operational functions within the teams to which they belong and which form part of their day to day work.
