Director of Learning for Music
Main Pay Scale + TLR 1C
We are seeking to appoint an outstanding music teacher to lead the further development of music in our school.
The current DOL has re-energised the school’s music department and there are now a core of committed and enthusiastic students participating in music making.
The school has a population of over 200 Easter European students who have a vast pool of as yet, untapped musical ability!
We have developed a national and international reputation for our pioneering work to raise standards and ensure that all students, especially the most vulnerable, are able to achieve their full potential. Lyng Hall was the first school to achieve the Achievement for All Quality Mark and Lead School status.
Students flourish in the environment that we have created. We work very closely with parents and seek to resolve all barriers to achievement, whatever and wherever they are. We have a dynamic, positive and talented staff, providing an excellent learning environment for our children.
The school serves a very socio-economically challenging neighbourhood with 50% of the children from ethnic minority groups, particularly Eastern Europe. This diversity is a very positive feature of our school.
CPD at Lyng Hall is good and enhances the careers of colleagues at every stage of their teaching career and clear pathways to leadership are available from day one.
Lyng Hall is part of the Finham Park Multi Academy Trust, which currently comprises three secondary schools and one primary school. There are opportunities for staff to collaborate across the MAT.
If you share our ambition to provide an outstanding education for our pupils, we would welcome an application from you.
