This an exciting opportunity for a Music teacher to grow and develop a curriculum tailored to our students' skills. Students at Grace are energetic and enthusiastic about all genres of music and, with a passionate subject specialist, students' talent and knowledge could be fostered and thrive.

They are introduced to concepts such as vocal range, melodies, harmonies, rhythm, pitch and general performance skills.
The Music department is part of the Arts Faculty which consists of Music, Physical Education, Design & Technology, Drama and Art. Within the department there is a Faculty Lead, Lead of PE, two teachers who are part of the Academy Leadership team, two who are Heads of Year and teaching staff within each area.
We are a welcoming and caring community where our core values of limitless potential, intentional excellence, mutual respect, genuine integrity and amazing grace based on Christian values, run through all we do. It is central to our ethos, day to day curriculum, extra-curricular activities and pastoral structures. Here at Grace Academy we not only focus on the academic excellence of students but also work with students on supporting them to be the best human beings they can be.
We have high expectations for all those involved in the education of children. It is important that all students leaving Grace Academy have the qualifications they need in order to follow the path they have chosen; that students do not limit themselves and that staff and parents support them in raising their expectations and aspirations.
We pride ourselves on our caring ethos with a strong and genuine focus on staff wellbeing, putting development and wellbeing at the heart of our work. We work hard to look after our pool of talented staff who are encouraged to grow, develop and work collaboratively.
