Teacher of Music

Required for September 2019 

Chigwell School is seeking a qualified and enthusiastic teacher of music to join our vibrant and busy music department in September 2019.  The successful candidate will join the music department to deliver music in the Pre Prep (Reception and KS1) and Junior School (KS2). He or she will encourage and confidently support pupils of all levels of musical ability and inspire them to excel in all aspects of music, enabling them to realise their potential.

We believe that music should be an inspiration and available to all. The daily and weekly routine of the music department is incredibly diverse and the successful candidate will be fully involved in the life of the department and its programme of events.  He or she will be warmly encouraged in any new initiatives they might like to bring to the post.  Keyboard skills and the experience of using ICT in music, or indeed music technology, would be helpful.   There may be an opportunity to teach at KS3 for the right candidate but the post holder will predominantly teach Pre Prep and Junior School pupils. 

Chigwell School offers a competitive salary and benefits package and a supportive working environment. There is a well-developed programme of professional development, pupils are enthusiastic, co-operative and able, and colleagues are dedicated and get on well together. There is a strong sense of community.

We are located in the picturesque village of Chigwell just 10 miles from central London and on the Central Line.  Close to the edge of Epping Forest, we enjoy over 100 acres of beautiful grounds. 

Further details can be found on the School website (www.chigwell-school.org). Application is by a form which can be completed online or downloaded from our website (select Vacancies) and submitted to the HR department at hr@chigwell-school.org. 

Closing date: 23rd April 2109. Early applications welcome. 

Applications will be considered immediately upon receipt. The School reserves the right to appoint prior to the closing date. 

Chigwell is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening including checks with past employers, prohibition orders and enhanced DBS.
