We are looking to appoint an outstanding candidate to support the work of our exceptional Music department. The successful candidate will possess excellent organisation and administration skills and will have a clear understanding of the diverse needs of working within a musical environment. Experience of working with musical logistics and/or events management would be an advantage. This position is term time only, but will require some occasional evening work, for example the front of house duties at the school’s concerts.

5% of our cohort is selected according to musical aptitude, and the music department is keen to ensure that these students are challenged and encouraged to be the best musicians they can be whilst also encouraging and developing those who have not yet had the opportunity to discover their skills as much as all those in between. The department enjoys outstanding success at both GCSE and A level. In 2017 100% of A-Level and 96% of GCSE students achieved A*-C grades. We currently accommodate an average of 450 individual music lessons a week, and run an average of 17 formal concerts as well as a host of ‘performance platforms’ to encourage all students to share their talents.

The governors are committed to admitting the children of members of staff in line with our admissions policy.

The school is situated on an attractive 35-acre site in the Green Belt, has excellent facilities and is committed to an extensive programme of staff development. Central London is easily reached by rail from Potters Bar and the school is close to motorway links. Accommodation on site can be available for those needing to relocate.
