We are seeking to appoint an exceptional and inspirational Director of Music who will continue to build on the strong tradition and reputation of Music at Mayfield.

Music plays an important part in the life of the School. In addition to academic music, almost half of our girls receive instrumental tuition or are involved in the School choirs. Our Schola Cantorum is highly renowned and has recently performed at Westminster Abbey and Cathedral, and St Paul’s. The School also has strong links with the Mayfield Festival and the Tunbridge Wells International Young Concert Artists Competition. We are proud of the number of girls who go on to study or be involved in music at university.

As well as being a personable, dynamic and accomplished musician, the successful candidate will have experience of working in schools and be able to undertake the day-to-day responsibilities of running a large, successful, department which includes 15 VMTs. It is also expected that he/she will be a competent pianist with conducting experience.

Mayfield is a leading Catholic Independent boarding and day School for girls aged 11-18 situated in the beautiful East Sussex countryside, less than 50 miles from London and 40 minutes from Gatwick. Our latest ISI inspection report states that the quality of education at Mayfield is "outstanding" and was described by Country Life magazine as "one of the finest schools in the land." The School has a tradition of academic achievement with impressive GCSE and A Level results, a vibrant and eclectic extra-curricular provision and an enviable reputation for pastoral care.

We offer excellent working conditions in an outstanding environment, as well as a competitive salary package. All staff are expected to contribute to the extra-curricular life of the School.
