Performing Arts teacher (part-time, c.0.4FTE), Bellan House

The Performing Arts Faculty has recently been restructured and an exciting opportunity has arisen for a passionate musician or drama specialist to develop performing arts in our prep school (Bellan House), both within and without the classroom. Teaching is likely to be, initially, in the range of 4 to 8 years old and be equivalent to one or two days per week, although not necessarily restricted to full days. The successful candidate will report to and work closely with the Director of Performing Arts. A start date of September 2020 is expected.

Applications will be welcomed from both experienced teachers and those without formal teaching qualification. Passion and a desire to share their musical and dramatic enjoyment with our young people will be critical.
