We are looking for an enthusiastic, passionate and skilled Teacher of Music to join our fabulous Creative Arts Faculty. 

Music is an outstanding feature of the school achieving excellent results at GCSE. We have a very high intake at KS4 with almost 60 students choosing music as an option for this year. Lessons are practical, enjoyable yet highly academic in nature. Students at Weydon really look forward to their music lessons. 

There is a thriving extra-curricular scene with 3 choirs and 6 instrumental ensembles rehearsing on a weekly basis. Formal concerts are performed at least every term as well as a number of themed show cases, competitions, musical theatre productions and festivals. Every term, we take our GCSE students to watch a concert or opera in London to widen and extend their musical listening.

The Weydon School of Music is a purpose built space with two large classrooms and 6 practise rooms. We have also recently built a 250 seater theatre for concerts and productions. All students have access to garageband on iPads as well as a large range of tuned and untuned percussion and keyboards. We are very lucky to be a well-resourced and well looked after curriculum area. We also have a full time Creative Arts technician.

You will be fully looked after both within the curriculum area and by the Director of Creative Arts. You will find students co-operative, motivated and excited to learn. You will be expected to show a high level of musical expertise and be willing to expand and drive forward the extra-curricular side of music.

Our excellent staff make us outstanding. If you apply and are successful you will be supported and developed through our extensive CPD programme organised in conjunction with our teaching school. Regardless of your experience you will have a range of exciting opportunities to ensure you are always improving and learning.

We welcome applications from both well qualified teachers and those who are at the beginning of their career. The key is that you are enthusiastic and capable of contributing to a highly effective and supportive team.

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment procedures and an enhanced DBS check.
