Our school values ‘Be Proud, Aim High, Work Hard, Be Kind, No Excuses’ are at the centre of everything we do to maximise girls’ progress, develop their character and promote their emotional health and well-being. We are an oversubscribed girls’ school in East London and offer excellent opportunities for professional development and a great working environment.
The school currently has a vacancy for a peripatetic teacher to teach one-to-one singing lessons and contribute to our extra-curricular singing programme. The role is 8–10 hours of teaching over 2 days per week, 10 weekly sessions per term, and involves running at least one extra-curricular singing ensemble.
We are looking for an outstanding candidate with:
- Experience and expertise in one-to-one and small-group singing teaching
- The ability to take the lead on one or more of our choral ensembles
- The ability to inspire young people from a range of different contexts and backgrounds to high-quality music making
- The ability to collaborate with the rest of the music team to maximise student progress
Our girls love singing and enjoy making the most of opportunities to perform in concerts throughout the year, both in school and around London. The music department has recently moved into brand-new facilities on site, offering students access to high-quality music making. We also work closely with Newham Music Service as well as our partner schools in the Newham Community Schools Trust. Singing is a key part of our curriculum offer and we are looking for someone with the initiative, drive and creativity to help develop it even further.
