We are seeking to appoint a high-calibre individual to the post of Music Teacher & Chorister Tutor for January or April 2020. It may be possible for the posts to be held individually.
This is a rare opportunity to join Exeter Cathedral School at an exciting time in its 900-year history, and to be part of Exeter’s oldest school as it embarks on the next stage of its development.
Founded as a choir school in 1179, music is absolutely at the heart of the school. Central to this is the education of the Cathedral Choristers: 18 boys and 18 girls who lead the daily worship of Exeter Cathedral. The successful candidate is likely to be a gifted musician and classroom practitioner (whether new to the profession – the School is ISTIP-accredited and NQT induction is offered – or an established teacher) with considerable skills in working with children, high standards, a willingness to work hard, and the ability and motivation to be a role model for pupils and colleagues at this busy and purposeful co-educational 3-13 Prep School. As Chorister Tutor, the post-holder will be in the front line of chorister wellbeing and logistics, and the communication lynchpin between the School and the Cathedral.
Details of how to apply can be found in the ‘Information for Candidates’ pack attached. Information about the School can be found at www.exetercathedralschool.co.uk. Additionally, potential candidates are very welcome to have an informal conversation about the post with the Headmaster (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Monday 4th November 2019.
Interviews for shortlisted candidates are likely to take place in the week beginning 11th November.
The School reserves the right to interview and appoint at any time.
Exeter Cathedral School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all employees to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
