We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified and ambitious teacher of Music to lead our Music Department. The successful candidate will be an excellent teacher and will have a proven record of promoting high levels of achievement across the full range of ages and abilities. This post is equally suitable for a current Head of Music looking for a new opportunity or a current Teacher of Music wanting to further develop their career. We are committed to providing excellent professional development opportunities for all colleagues at Corpus Christi, including bespoke programmes designed to grow leadership capacity.
Corpus Christi is a thriving 11-16 mixed Catholic High School with a very strong Catholic ethos and exceptionally high expectations. Over the last five years Corpus Christi has undergone a period of significant and sustained improvement. In May 2016, diocesan inspectors noted that ‘Corpus Christi is a good Catholic school that is improving rapidly.’
In January 2018, Ofsted reported that ‘leaders and governors are unrelenting in their drive to improve educational experiences for all pupils. They are determined to ensure that all pupils benefit from a good quality of education that prepares them well for the future.’ They also noted that ‘there is clear evidence that pupils are enjoying their learning and are ambitious to succeed.’
We are confident that Corpus Christi has the potential to be an outstanding school. You will see from the inspection report published January 2018 that we have already made significant progress.
This is an exciting time to join Corpus Christi and a great opportunity to be part of a very supportive team.
