The role

As an engaging teacher with a passion for music, you will create a creative, supportive and motivating classroom. You'll inspire and challenge your students so that they develop into confident musicians and achieve their individual potential. Your love of teaching will extend beyond the classroom into our enrichment programme: Running weekly rehearsals and organising performance opportunities will give you the chance to spend more time making music alongside the students and to embed the culture of musical engagement across the academy. This is an outstanding opportunity to join a successful, and rapidly improving academy. We are driven by a forward thinking philosophy and a vibrant, positive culture. In a friendly and welcoming school, with supportive colleagues, you'll be able to make a real impact on our academy, and on the lives our students.

Our music department is growing each year with an uptake of two GCSE exam groups in Year 9 from September 2018. We are very blessed with its physical resources: As well as a large collection of orchestral and pop instruments, we have a class set of keyboards, djembe drums and ukuleles and also a full set of steel pan drums. Our three main classrooms are varied and suitable for different activities and are complimented by 5 purpose built practice room spaces, each with instruments. We have a fully equipped recording studio, as well as two mac suites with Logic Pro and Sibelius 7. The technology in the theatre is also of a high standard and we have a dedicated audio visual technician, meaning performances can be produced to a very good level, and enhanced effectively by lighting and visuals.
