We require an ambitious and dynamic person to develop the place of Music at Coundon Court. You will have the potential to manage high expectation through robust challenge and engaging teaching. The post is available with a range of possible additional responsibility and I would welcome applications from individuals with a range of experience.

Music has a secure place within our curriculum plan and every student is entitled to an hour a week in Years seven and eight. Music is then a GCSE option at the start of Year nine when students embark on a three year programme of study. Drama is also delivered in a similar manner. The two subject work closely together to develop performance and resilience in excellent, purpose built facilities. A Level Music and Drama are expected to be delivered in 2019 as the two subjects fully establish themselves within the KS4 options suite.   

The Performing Arts Centre is a purpose built facility consisting of large teaching spaces, performance space, practice rooms and an iMAC suite.   

An extensive peripatetic tuition program exists and student participation is rapidly increasing. Several showcase events are planned for annually. A commitment to enrichment activity in and around the school day is vital.
