Secondary Music Teacher

St. George’s the British International School, Munich, Germany. 

Owing to the continued growth of our school St. George's School seeks a well-qualified teacher of Music to work across our secondary schools, to begin in August 2020.

The School

Having opened in September 2013, St. George’s School Munich has rapidly developed into a thriving community of around 550 pupils and 70 teachers. The school continues to grow, and as the school matures we expect to reach 800 pupils. The school’s ethos of combining an enriching curriculum with family orientated care makes the school a warm and engaging place to work and learn.

In September 2017, the school embarked on an exciting phase of its development, as it moved to a new, purpose-built campus located in the city. These premises provide first-class educational facilities for all ages and subject areas.

The National Curriculum is taught throughout the school and we offer IGCSE qualifications to pupils in our Upper School. Students in the Sixth Form prepare the International Baccalaureate Diploma. 

One of a group of three schools located across Germany, St. George’s offers the successful applicant an exciting range of opportunities for professional development and growth across the school group.

The Location

The school’s new campus is located in the area of Schwabing-Freimann, to the north of the city centre. The site enjoys good access to the U6 metro line, as well as the A9 motorway.

Germany’s third largest city, and the capital of the state of Bavaria, Munich is a dynamic and vibrant cultural centre, with a large and diverse international community. Situated on the northern edge of the Alps, Munich offers a high standard of living, as well as numerous opportunities for travel and outdoor pursuits.

Munich airport is located 30km from the school, with many daily flights to the UK, and high speed rail services connect Munich to a wide range of European destinations.

The Role

We are seeking to appoint a qualified Music Teacher  to work within our team of secondary teachers. 

The successful applicant will be a dynamic teacher with experience of enabling pupils to achieve their potential. We are looking for the right balance between experience, enthusiasm and a passion for teaching that will inspire our pupils. 

The secondary department covers the age range 11-18 and incorporates the curricula for Key Stage 3, IGCSE and IB Diploma. Familiarity with the British education system is therefore a prerequisite. Experience of IB teaching is preferred, but not required.  

Music is a compulsory part of the curriculum at both primary and secondary level. In the primary school, music is taught by a specialist teacher and pupils enter the secondary school with a broad understanding of musical styles, genres and traditions, as well as how music is created, including notation. They have also had practical experience in percussion, string and keyboard instruments. This is developed in the secondary school, and music is an increasingly pop-ular option at IGCSE level. In future, we aspire to build on this success and introduce music as an IB option.

Our campus provides outstanding facilities in which to develop pupils’ musical talents. The department has two spacious music studios, as well as a recording stu-dio, eight practice rooms and a music technology suite.

Given the growing and developing nature of the school, flexibility and the desire to support other team members is a prerequisite. A strong desire to contribute to the rich pastoral and extra-curricular life of the school will also be an advantage.

Applications should be submitted by the closing date of 01st March 2020. The school reserves the right to contact outstanding applicants in advance of this deadline.
