Teacher of Music

Queen Margaret's SchoolNorth Yorkshire

We are an equal opportunities employer and actively seek applications from candidates of all genders and all backgrounds. We employ around 170 staff of whom over 90 are teachers. The majority of staff live within 30-45 minutes of the School including York, Hull, Leeds and Harrogate. Staff involved in boarding live on site although the School is unable to provide accommodation more generally for staff. We operate our own salary scale and all staff contribute to a pension scheme. Full-time staff receive a discount on day fees. During term time (in normal times) meals are provided when you are on duty.

Music is an integral part of the life of Queen Margaret’s, with a thriving department which not only caters for music as an academic discipline but also as a major contributor to the school’s enrichment programme. The department consists of the Director of Music who is assisted by the Head of Keyboard Studies, a Teacher of Music (this role), a School Administrator and a team of 16 peripatetic music teachers. In the academic year 2020/2021 we have had to adjust both our curriculum and its mode of delivery as the School both anticipated and reacted to changing guidance in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our sincere hope is that by September 2021 the musical life of the School will have returned to something very close to normal.

Please apply using the School’s Application Form (available on our website at and enclose a covering letter explaining why you are interested in the post and what you believe you will bring to the role.

Closing date: 9:00 am on Monday 1 March 2021
