Dear candidate,

Last year, King Solomon Academy was the highest performing non-selective school in the country. We are redefining what is possible and we are seeking an exceptional teacher ready to join our high-performing school and contribute to our school’s mission. This is a unique opportunity to be part of showing what education can achieve. KSA is a rare example of a genuinely all-through school, with one curriculum, culture, staff body and leadership team supporting our pupils’ journey from nursery to university.

One of our most ambitious goals is for all of our pupils to become highly accomplished and successful musicians as part of our string orchestra. We believe all pupils, with the right role models, expectations and teaching can learn to love and excel at playing a string instrument. As such the Strings Programme Co-ordinator would play a key role in ensuring the ambitious goals above are made into a reality.

For prospective candidates this role presents a unique offer. You will be part of a ground-breaking project which aims to show that all pupils, irrespective of background, can learn a string instrument to orchestra standard. The role will allow candidates to rapidly develop their small group instruction skills and also be developed as ensemble and whole orchestra teachers through coaching from expert leaders. The role will also require candidates to lead on the development of technical proficiency of all pupils by arranging technical exercises and orchestral pieces that incrementally allow them to progress their skills.

The role of Strings Programme Co-ordinator is perfect for someone who enjoys teaching their string instrument and wants to be the driving force behind a successful school wide programme. The role would also appeal to someone who is committed to the consistent growth and development of pupils over an extended period of time. Candidates will also love arranging string music and be excited by the prospect of bringing their ideas to life using our enthusiastic pupils helped by a team of other skilled strings specialists and music tutor fellows.

To apply, follow the link at

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis up until the formal deadline of 11am on Monday 19th June.

We strongly encourage candidates to apply at the first opportunity to maximise their chance of securing a role. For an informal conversation about the role, please contact Francesca Waters, Recruitment Manager at and 0203 116 6345.

Yours sincerely,

Max Haimendorf
