HEAD OF MUSIC MPS/UPS + London Fringe Allowance (TLR 1a £7699)
Required for September 2018
Educating 1200 students, The Bishop’s Stortford High School provides a single-sex education for boys in Years 7 to 11 and has a large, thriving co-educational sixth form, with over one hundred girls on roll. Last year our students achieved 84% 5 A*-C (Inc. English & Maths) at GCSE and 55% A*-B at A-Level. We have a strong ethos, based on high expectations and standards for all, a committed and supportive staff who deliver high quality, engaging lessons and well-behaved students with excellent attitudes to learning.
We were graded Outstanding in every category by Ofsted in March 2017.
We are seeking to appoint an outstanding teacher of Music, with a passion for promoting the subject both inside and outside of the curriculum, to lead an established and flourishing department.
Music takes a prominent position within the school, with excellent participation and high standards of student performance in the frequent concerts and events. We have an annual music festival, at which we are fortunate to attract some excellent visiting professionals as adjudicators; a variety of concerts throughout the year; a bi-annual school musical and an annual music performance tour which recently visited Belgium.
This is an active, busy department with an excellent local reputation. The school has a vast range of enrichment activities which include many international trips, cultural visits, first class fixture cards in all major sports, a diverse and high quality music and drama programme, DofE, public speaking, charity work and much more besides.
An application form and further details are immediately available from the Headteacher’s PA, Mrs D Landers, at the school or downloadable from the website www.tbshs.org
TBSHS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the safety and welfare of all our children and expects staff to share this commitment.
A Disclosure Barring Service check is required for all successful applicants.
