Teacher of Music job summary

Full time

Required September 2022

We wish to appoint an enthusiastic and inspiring Teacher of Music to join our successful and expanding department where Music is taught up to ‘A’ level and includes Music Technology at ‘A’ level. The department moved into a brand new Music and Drama block in May 2021, providing the department with a range of specialist and purpose-built facilities to deliver an exciting and engaging curriculum to our students to enhance their music education.

Music is a highly successful subject in the school and is increasing its numbers at both Key Stage 4 and 5. A large number of music concerts are performed during the year. It would be expected that the successful candidate would contribute to a substantial amount of extra-curricular music offered by the school. The ability to play the piano/another instrument (Grade 7+ or at an equivalent standard) would be an advantage, as would knowledge of sequencing software such as Cubase.

This post would equally suit an experienced teacher or a newly qualified teacher for whom excellent induction and support is provided.

Stanborough School

Stanborough School is an 11-18 co-educational Academy that sits on the southern fringe of Welwyn Garden City. The school currently has 1099 students. Due to parental demand for places at the school, from September 2019 the school expanded to 8 form entry. This has required a substantial amount of new premises work to be completed which includes a new teaching block as well as a drama and music block.

We pride ourselves in being a fully inclusive school that serves our local community and on being a school that does its best for each individual student so they can achieve their potential during their time at Stanborough.

Stanborough is proud of its community involvement. We work closely with the four other local Secondary Schools as part of the Welwyn-Hatfield 16-19 Consortium. We also take a leading role in hosting and developing a number of other key community developments such as the Handside Schools Partnership with a local special school and primary school.

The school boasts excellent facilities including our first-rate IT resources, a legacy of our Specialist Computing Status. With a dedicated Art and Technology block, Sports Hall, Sixth Form Centre and recently constructed new teaching block and Music and Drama block the students enjoy some outstanding facilities. Our excellent resources in all curriculum areas also show our commitment to giving students a wide variety of curricular opportunities including technology, the performing arts and computing.

Our greatest asset at the school is our staff. We want the best educators for our students and through exceptional retention we have a stable staff with very low turn-over. A number of staff who started at the school as NQTs now find themselves in senior positions at the school. We have a strong support team and many staff have remained with the school for several years.

With the appointment of a new Headteacher from September 2018, this is an exciting time to join the school and become part of an ambitious and hard-working team dedicated to moving the school forward. We are looking for support staff and teachers who will embody our four principles of High Expectations; Mutual Respect; Quality Learning and Success for All.
