What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an innovative, ambitious and inspiring teacher to join our Music department from September 2023 for 2 days per week (Wednesday and Thursday). We would also consider a full-time teacher, with the ability to teach a second subject. The position would suit an experienced teacher or an ECT.

Swanmore is very proud to be in the position to offer an expanded and enhanced creative curriculum provision to both pupils and teaching professionals.

Our Performing Arts building provides us with first class facilities for teaching, learning and performing.

The successful candidate will be an outstanding teaching practitioner or aspire to be. Who has the ability to enthuse our pupils with a passion for the subject and encourage them to become independent learners. A willingness to participate in departmental extra-curricular activities is also essential.

We are looking for candidates who will raise attainment in the department, assisting our pupils to achieve excellence.

- Access to internal training development opportunities (we support National Professional Qualifications at all levels, run an Extended Leadership Secondment and can contribute to Masters/PhD courses)
