Date posted:
Start date: 19 February 2018
Contract type: Part Time
Salary: Competitive - details below
Contract term: Permanent

Applications are invited from talented, well qualified, string teachers interested in peripatetic work and/or teaching groups to start on 19 February 2018.

Claremont Fan Court School has a vibrant violin programme for our Year 3 and 4 pupils which yields sustained interest in the violin. The successful candidate will have the enthusiasm, flair and expertise to teach and inspire individual pupils from age 7 to 18. We also require teaching of the violin to classes for Years 3 and 4 alongside the Preparatory School music teacher during curriculum music lessons and running a Preparatory School string group. Showcasing the pupils’ work will be an important part of this role.

The teaching of groups currently takes place on Wednesdays from 10.30am to 3.30pm (including non contact time) with a possibility of extending the hours with peripatetic teaching to a full day and into an additional part or second day. There may be an opportunity to negotiate a change to the core teaching day for subsequent years. Individual lessons can be taught any week day subject to agreement with the Director of Music.

The ideal candidate would have interest in both aspects of the role but applications are invited for either or both; please indicate in your personal statement where your interests lie. The role could be split between two people.

The group teaching salary will be competitive depending on experience and qualifications and the peripatetic rate of pay is £35.35 per hour for individual lessons (£20.62 per 35 minute lesson). The salary is offered along with all the benefits of a thriving independent day school including Teachers’ Pension, nursery vouchers, cycle scheme, parking on site and lunch provided by our excellent caterers in term time.
