This is an exciting opportunity for a well-qualified and passionate Music Teacher to join a thriving and successful Music Department within an exceptional school.
The ideal candidate would be a subject specialist in Music who is able to contribute to the planning and delivery of lessons up to GCSE and A Level, and who could help with the future development of the department and deliver part of the co-curricular programme.
