An Independent Day School for Boys with a Co-Educational Sixth Form
Founded in 1646, Reading Blue Coat School is a leading independent day school of 490 boys aged 11 – 16, with a further 270 students in the co-educational Sixth Form. The School is located on a beautiful 46 acre campus in the village of Sonning, just outside Reading, overlooking the river Thames.
The School offers a stimulating, friendly and supportive atmosphere in which each pupil can realise their full intellectual, physical and creative potential.
Commencing in 2018, this role is an exciting opportunity for a committed and ambitious musician to take over a department with a fine musical tradition and help it develop and grow. A new Performing Arts Centre is planned and you will have considerable input into the planning and construction of this facility. The department is generously staffed, well-equipped and benefits from the support of an ambitious new Headmaster and a Senior Leadership Team that values the role of music in the School.
You will hold a good honours degree, probably in Music, and ideally hold a recognised teaching qualification.
The School provides a stimulating and vibrant environment in which to teach, and you will join a highly committed and enthusiastic academic team. Reading Blue Coat has been recognised by the Daily Telegraph as one of ten independent schools offering the best value in the UK.
We offer an excellent salary and benefits package, dependent on qualifications and experience.
