We have an excellent opportunity for an experienced Music teacher to join a thriving Music Department and play a key role inspiring our students to enjoy making music and relish the performance opportunities available to them.

As the Assistant Director of Music, you will work alongside the Director of Music in promoting the academic and co-curricular aspects of the Music Department across the School. You will also teach across KS3-5, with a willingness to teach the occasional KS2 lesson, delivering excellent musical lessons across the age range, encouraging our girls to focus on the key skills of analysis and evaluation alongside the practical skills of composition and performance.

You will be joining a department that is academically strong, with excellent GCSE and A Level results achieved over the last four years and many of our pupils having gone on to read music at university. The Department is attached to the Rutherford performing arts centre and offers two large music classrooms, both fully equipped with two suites of MacBook Pros running Sibelius 7, as well as seven practice rooms used for peripatetic instrumental teaching. The Department has recently undergone refurbishment with two new classroom sound systems, a recording studio being installed to the A Level classroom and sound bars being installed in each of the practice rooms.

If you are an outstanding musician with excellent subject knowledge and experience of planning and teaching KS3-5, we would be delighted to hear from you. (We would also be interested in hearing from candidates who aspire to develop into this role within six to twelve months).

In return, we can offer a variety of benefits, such as:

• Access to extensive professional development opportunities

• Training grants for qualifications

• Generous pension schemes

• Free life assurance benefit

• Free school lunches

• A discount of up to 50% on fees for children at GDST schools
