We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic and talented Director of Music; this is a fantastic opportunity for a committed and inspiring leader to be part of a highly successful team which consistently delivers high achievement for all students.
St Gabriel’s is an independent day school founded in 1929 which incorporates Sandleford, our EYFS provision; at present there are approximately 500 pupils in the School. Sandleford Priory dates back to the early Middle Ages and is set in a beautiful Grade 1 listed building within 33 acres of Capability Brown parkland, which provides a gracious setting in which to work. The school was rated "Excellent" at the last ISI Inspection in 2019.
St Gabriel’s pupils thrive through strong, effective pastoral support; our broad curriculum and range of activities afford each pupil the opportunity to enjoy success according to their particular talents. St Gabriel’s is no ordinary school; parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils.
The Director of Music is responsible to the Principal for the management and development of music making at St Gabriel’s, ensuring that each pupil is positively encouraged to develop their musical potential to the full. It is expected that the Director of Music will establish an ethos of high expectation and enthusiasm throughout the department. The Director of Music will encourage performances and compositions of high musical quality enabling pupils to feel the success of musical achievement at St Gabriel’s, and contribute to the musical life of the school and community.
This is an exciting opportunity for a creative and forward thinking individual to inspire learners of all abilities whilst embedding learning dispositions.
We value our staff and, as such, you can expect to work in a friendly, supportive environment and enjoy the benefits of ongoing professional development.
This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Any offer of appointment will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
