Teacher of Music

Date 2017-04-19 19:04:55 Location : Europe

This is a unique opportunity to play a vital role in the development of our Orchestra Programme and contribute to the life of our outstanding music specialist all-through school, which seeks to redefine what is possible in education.

We seek an enthusiastic and talented teacher, ready to deliver great learning within and beyond the curriculum and in our specialist subject and by doing so, to have a huge impact on the futures of our pupils.

We are looking for a teacher to join our music department to contribute to the school’s ground-breaking orchestra programme where all pupils learn a string instrument. We need an exceptional and inspirational music teacher to serve as a role model to our pupils by teaching them in the development of their musical ability, self-confidence and aspirations.

Our ambitious goal is for all of our pupils to become highly accomplished and successful musicians in our string orchestra. We believe all pupils, with the right role models, expectations and teaching can learn to love and excel at playing a string instrument, irrespective of their starting point.

King Solomon Academy aims to transform the lives of its pupils, 65% of whom come from the 1% most deprived communities in the country. Our mission is to provide a rigorous education that prepares our pupils for success at university and beyond, irrespective of their starting point. Our teachers do whatever it takes to make this vision a reality. The staff culture of KSA is one of mission aligned teamwork and shared professional development so that as individuals and as a school we can provide the very best education for the children we serve.

Over the last three years, King Solomon Academy has been consistently one of the top 10 non-selective schools in the country. We are redefining what is possible and we are seeking an exceptional teacher and leader ready to join our high-performing school and contribute to our school’s mission. This is a unique opportunity to be part of showing what education can achieve.

We are looking for an individual with a genuine passion for working at King Solomon Academy, a belief in the potential of every child and that through hard work all pupils can access and benefit from a university education, and the confidence and vision to lead others in making things happen.

This is a role for a leader who is able to take on significant responsibility in a high performing school.

In this role you will:

Have the opportunity to teach across age ranges within all-through experience of musicianship for our pupils
Be part of nationally ground-breaking music practices
Join an already talented team of music teachers who you can learn from
Be developed as an exceptional teacher capable of driving ground-breaking educational outcomes for pupils from an economically deprived background
Have the opportunity to take on additional leadership responsibilities as you develop, including senior leadership
Join the Ark network, accessing comprehensive development opportunities
King Solomon Academy is a place where teachers learn how to improve their teaching, constantly striving to be the best they can be. A significant proportion of the Head of Music’s time will be coaching the team of teachers in their department. Each teacher is supported with weekly drop-in observations and action steps, meaning our teachers rapidly progress into being exceptional classroom practitioners. Our school is one which is transformational for staff and pupils alike.

To apply please visit our website via the button below by 11am on Wednesday 26th April. For an informal conversation about the role, please contact Francesca Waters, Recruitment Manager on 0203 116 6345.
