Teacher of Music Required: April, 2022 Salary: MPS/UPS, Part Time (0.6) or Full Time if also able to teach Drama. Are you ready for an exciting role as part of our thriving Performing Arts team, teaching music at Key Stages 3 and 4?

We’re looking for an excellent classroom teacher who wants to have a significant impact on the extra-curricular life of the school.

We run a vocational course at Key Stage 4, therefore knowledge of the BTEC curriculum and assessment would be an asset. Evidence of successful teaching at GCSE would also be desirable. The successful candidate will work in a supportive school where students achieve and make sustained progress as a result of our ‘can do’ ethos. If successful, we offer you the opportunity to work with a highly-motivated group of students and colleagues, where your contribution to the music team and the school as a whole, will be valued.
