The role

This is an exciting opportunity for a proactive, creative and energetic Performing Arts enthusiast to play a key role supporting the delivery of an impressive co-curricular Music and Drama programme at our successful, friendly and academic school based in the heart of Wimbledon.

Working particularly closely with our Key Stage 3 girls, successful candidate will have experience in performance – both musical and drama, and ideally, a familiarity with working with young people. 

A willingness to engage closely with our students, develop their talents and interests and encourage them in their efforts is a prerequisite of this role, as is a willingness to get involved in all the opportunities which present themselves and indeed, a desire to come up with some ideas and projects independently. 

This role might suit someone who is interested in pursuing either a career in the performance arts or in teaching the performance arts. 

Performing Arts at Wimbledon High School

The Performing Arts are thriving at the School, featured within the School’s Rutherford Centre for the Performing Arts: a fully functioning theatre with professional lighting and sound.

Music making is at the heart of Wimbledon High School life, with music being heard regularly across the School. Students are high-performing and academic results are excellent.

The School is also bursting with dramatic opportunities with a number of large-scale musicals and plays to be involved in.

If you are interested in this opportunity, we also offer a competitive salary and benefits package, excellent facilities and a friendly and supportive working environment. 

Further details of the position and the application form are available by clicking the apply button.

The closing date for applications is 9am on Thursday 29 June 2017 and interviews will be held thereafter. 

The School reserves the right to commence the interview process at any time prior to the closing date so early application is recommended. 

Wimbledon High School is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.
