Reporting directly to an Assistant Principal, the successful candidate will be responsible for the strategic direction of Music at the academy, have significant influence and responsibilities, as well as the opportunity to make a considerable impact on the future lives of our students. 

This is a varied and challenging role which is fundamental to the successful development of Nene Park Academy, its ethos and the success of our students, with a particular brief to increase the profile and success of Music and will involve working with other like-minded professionals within the Performing Arts faculty to extend the boundaries of learning within this discipline.
