Selby High School is an ambitious, forward looking, and successful 11-16 secondary school located in North Yorkshire and rated ‘good’ in our last inspection.  We are proud of our school and the opportunities it provides for both students and staff.  Our ambition is success for everyone through encouragement, teamwork, and mutual respect, combined with and an enjoyment of learning.  We aim to create an environment where we all understand, that by supporting each other and working together, we achieve more.

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for an excellent classroom teacher who wants to have a significant impact on the extra-curricular life of the school.  The ability to teach other performing arts subjects such as dance or drama will be an advantage but not a necessity.  It would also be beneficial for the successful candidate to be a competent piano player, although this is not a requirement.  The successful candidate must have a passion for performance and a desire to help run existing music clubs as well as develop new clubs based on your skillset and the students’ interests.  Technology plays a strong part in the KS4 courses we run, therefore an aptitude (or interest) in music technology would be beneficial, but again, not essential. 

Working at Selby High

The successful candidate will work in a supportive school where students achieve and make sustained progress as a result of our ‘can do’ ethos.  

If successful, we offer you the opportunity to work in a school with a strong culture of learning, where your contribution to the music team and the school as a whole, will be valued.  Working in a friendly school community, we invite you to join us in our commitment to inspire every student with the skills, resilience, independence and confidence they need to achieve their potential. As a school, we have an extensive CPD programme to support you in your career.  We also provide all our staff with a laptop computer and tablet device.

Excellent learning and teaching is at the heart of all that we do and is supported with a full professional development programme and outstanding induction programme.  

Visits to the school from prospective candidates are welcome.  Selby is located in picturesque North Yorkshire and benefits from good commuter links with York and Leeds. 

Selby High School is an equal opportunities employer. We have a robust child protection policy and are committed to safeguarding the welfare of our children and young people.

Full details and an application pack are available from the school website: www.selbyhigh.co.uk.  Visits can be organised by contacting the SLT PA, Caroline Airth on 01757 244833 or admin@selbyhigh.co.uk.
