The School is looking to appoint a first-rate musician and outstanding classroom practitioner, with unimpeachable subject knowledge and someone able to work collaboratively within an expanding and forward-looking department.
You will be someone who is passionate in your approach to the teaching of music and determined to achieve excellent results.
