The Governing Body of this highly successful, partially selective, mixed school invites applications for the post of Assistant Director of Music due to the promotion of our current incumbent. We are seeking a highly motivated, committed musician who is passionate about instilling a love for music across the whole school community.

This post offers an exciting opportunity to assist with leading our thriving music department in a school which places a special emphasis on the subject. The successful candidate will have an interest in developing teaching, learning and opportunity across the school as we continue to shape this remarkable department, where we constantly strive to provide musical experience that is accessible, inspiring and exciting for all our students. You may be looking to take on
more responsibility within a thriving music department or you may already hold a similar position in your current school yet be seeking a position which offers greater scope for personal development in a stimulating, intellectually challenging environment. An interest in choirs could be an advantage.

Music is a popular choice at GCSE and A level and there are many extracurricular opportunities including a range of concerts in our own Concert Hall, less formal Soul Band and Jazz evenings, the student led ‘Great Gig’, musical theatre productions, tours abroad and competitions at regional and national level.

In 2019, 96% of all students secured five or more grades 9-4 at GCSE and 84% of all A level entries were graded A*- B. 92% of GCSE Music results were graded 7-9, with 100% at grade 5 or above; 100% of A Level Music results were graded A*-B.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service. CVs will not be accepted for any posts based in schools.
