Graduate Resident Assistant (Music)

Casterton, Sedbergh Preparatory SchoolCumbria


Sedbergh School and Casterton, Sedbergh Prep School are now seeking full time Graduate Resident Assistants (GRAs), to enhance the Music provision for our pupils, on fixed-term contracts for the academic year 2021/2022.

Posts are available in both the Senior and Prep Schools and will be ideally suited to anyone considering music teaching as a career, who would like a year of experience in a supportive environment, prior to beginning a PGCE or other teaching training. The successful applicants will enjoy the chance to shape our enthusiastic young musicians, in a school with a strong musical heritage. A recognised Music degree and high level of musicianship (particularly piano) is required for the post.

Sedbergh is very much accustomed to the training and induction of young staff, with a team of GRAs on both sites, and the successful candidates will be carefully guided through their time here. Many of our previous Music GRAs have gone on to successful teaching careers, some even within the School itself!

The post will be available from September 2021.
