About the role
This vacancy has arisen due to the promotion of the current Music teacher to another school.
Music is an integral part of our Creative & Performance curriculum. The successful candidate will be expected to work within the Creative and Performance Department (Music, PE, Art, Computer Science and Design Technology) in order to deliver high quality music lessons to all KS3 pupils and offer GCSE Music to Year 10 and 11.
The music department currently consists of one main teaching classroom with six practice rooms attached to this room. The department is fully resourced with a range of classroom instruments and MacBook laptops.
We move to our permanent site in Paddington Basin in September 2018, where there will be two Music rooms and peripatetic practice rooms.
There are a wide range of musical ensembles happening in the school each week which the peripatetic teachers assist with. These include:
- Jazz Band
- Brass Group
- Percussion Group
- Saxophone Group
In the fullness of time, once our Sixth Form is established, you will be able to offer A Level Music and/or Music Technology.
In addition the music teacher will oversee the school’s instrumental provision and manage the team of 6 peripatetic teachers. The successful candidate will undertake the organisation of the Christmas, Easter and summer concert.
The school is committed to providing excellent professional development and training through relevant CPD.
