What skills and experience we're looking for

We are characterised by how we treat our people

“Pupils enjoy attending this thriving and popular school. They feel a strong sense of belonging to the school community. Pupils achieve well and almost all successfully move on to apprenticeships, A levels or other forms of education, employment or training. Staff have high expectations of behaviour and know pupils very well.”

Ofsted April 2023

At SJT we value and care for all our staff and take staff well-being seriously. We take staff’s work/life balance seriously and this is reflected by, amongst other things, ensuring teachers receive a minimum 20% non-contact time. We are committed to reducing the marking and planning workload.

We wish to appoint an excellent music teacher to join our Performing Arts department. You will excel in teaching music and be able to deliver our planned curriculum to Key Stages 3 and 4. Our Key Stage 3 Arts curriculum has the Arts Award Bronze qualification embedded into it along side a full offer of Drama and Music throughout the Key Stage. Our curriculum is diverse, well planned and ambitious and provides a great opportunity for a new member of the team to develop their passion for Music and The Arts. At KS4, we follow the BTEC technical award for Music and we have recruited well onto this course for next year. The right candidate will be joining a passionate and enthusiastic department of five with a range of specialisms. Ideally you will have QTS but we will consider applicants with relevant experience who don't necessarily have QTS. This post arises due to the promotion of the current post holder. We are committed to Arts education as part of a balanced and ambitious curriculum and we are proud to have received Platinum status for our Arts Award. Along side this role, we are also advertising a TLR to further develop our Arts Award.


What the school offers its staff

This is a great opportunity for the right candidate to contribute to our work and benefit from an excellent environment, where teachers are encouraged to progress their careers with us. Our great facilities, including specialist Music spaces and practice rooms, ensure that our students and staff have the best learning environment in which to achieve. SJT is a very positive community, with our recent staff survey showing that over 97% of our staff enjoy coming to work and are proud to be part of our school. At SJT we view the professional development of all staff as a priority and our innovative ‘Learn Together’ initiative enables all staff to be on our outstanding teacher programme.

We are looking for a teacher who shares our drive and passion to inspire our students with their love of their subject and the motivation to ensure every student achieves through:

  • Outstanding classroom practice and an ability to engage all young people.
  • A commitment to contribute to our enrichment programme
  • The ability to motivate students of all abilities to achieve their full potential.
  • A passion and commitment to raise standards and achievement.
  • The ability to work and contribute as part of a team.
  • Commitment, resilience, patience, hard work and a good sense of humour.
  • The willingness to do what it takes to achieve a goal.

The successful candidate will fully embrace our ethos of ‘Belong, Believe Achieve’ whilst bringing fresh ideas that will build on current strengths and achievements. We welcome applications from applicants at all stages of their career.
