Charterhouse is based in a magnificent 215 acre site near Godalming in Surrey. In addition to the main school buildings, there are 11 boarding houses, 4 girls boarding hostels, and around 80 residential properties spread over the school campus and nearby town environs. There are about 800 pupils aged 13 to 18; over 60 girls are admitted to the Sixth Form each year. The School enjoys outstanding cultural and sporting facilities and an enviable record of academic and all-round achievement. In total Charterhouse employs around 450 staff, 110 of whom are involved with the teaching of the pupils.
We are looking for an experienced teacher with a proven record of excellent teaching skills and the ability to teach tenors and basses at all levels from beginner to diploma standard. Candidates will also be experienced accompanists, with an enthusiasm to see this as an integral part of their work here.
It is envisaged that there will be one, and possibly two days’ teaching available per week. The successful applicant will join a thriving and enthusiastic team of five Singing teachers, who give lessons to well over 100 students every week.
Good organisational skills are essential. Teachers are expected to formulate their own timetables, to keep a register, to report any absences on a weekly basis, and to write termly reports. Our teachers are required to give between 28 and 30 lessons per annum, and a regular commitment is required, although there is flexibility in allowing for professional engagements.
Visiting Music Teachers are PAYE employees of the school and receive a pension, free membership of the Charterhouse Sports Club, and holiday pay.
