Leading academic independent day and boarding school requires for September 2017


We are currently seeking to recruit a Head of Music. This is an exciting opportunity to take an already extremely successful department into the next phase of its development in a school that has a vision for growing our Performing Arts offer. 

The Mount is a thriving boarding and day community set in 16 acres of beautiful grounds located ten minutes’ walk from York’s historic city centre. The School offers excellent facilities and comprises a Junior School for girls and boys aged 2 to 11 and an all-girls Senior School with girls up to the age of 18. 

The Mount has a longstanding academic reputation with pupils going on to study at a range of Russell Group universities including Oxbridge and Ivy League universities. In 2016 forty-two percent of Year 13 pupils went on to study STEM related subjects. There is a wealth of talented musicians at The Mount and many pupils come to the School on Music scholarships. Drama and Sport are also major strengths of the School.

The Head of Music is in charge of Music across the whole school working closely with our Junior School Music specialist. The ability to teach both GCSE and A Level Music is essential.

We are an ipad school and all pupils and staff have ipads. All staff are required to make a commitment to give to the extra-curricular programme of the School and a large number of musical activities take place each day.
