Start date: As soon as possible

Contract: Fixed term till end of August 2022

King Solomon Academy is achieving remarkable things. In our first four years of GCSE results we have regularly achieved nationally ground-breaking outcomes, including being the top 1% for pupil progress every year, and in three of the last four years we have been in the top 10 schools in the country.

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 a key part of the string programme, Strings Tutor Fellows provide instrument teaching and tutoring to our pupils from aged 8 to aged 18.

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 of Strings Tutor Fellow is a great opportunity for someone who enjoys teaching their string instrument but wants to be part of an orchestra programme rather than teaching isolated instrumental lessons. The role would be an excellent fit for someone with a strings background who would like to become a music teacher in the future, acting as a springboard and training ground for those who want to learn how to teach and build transformational relationships with pupils. For these candidates, we are able to offer a very clear pathway of progression into the teaching profession. The Ark Schools School Direct training programme provides a clear route for progression. We are growing a pipeline of great teachers who started with us as 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 6th December 2021. We strongly encourage candidates to apply at the first opportunity to maximise their chance of securing a role.
