We are looking for a music teacher to join an inspirational department, who can
take on a diverse role working across our school community during a period of maternity cover from January/February to July 2022. There will be opportunities to teach secondary students a range of engaging subject-specific and cross-curricular projects, teach music to our primary school children and support and strengthen our pioneering middle school band project, in which all students embark on a journey as part of a Big Band, Wind Band or String Orchestra. For this particular role we are ideally looking for someone who is confident at teaching OCR GCSE music and is a confident pianist.
Music has a central place in the life of School 21 – not just in the core curriculum, but as part of project based learning, the enrichment programme, celebration assemblies and whole school exhibitions and events. Our Festival of Light concerts, which involve every child across the school, showcase the outcomes of all Year group music projects and a range of ensembles and are a central part of the school culture, celebrating not only the students, but teachers and parents as part of a staff and community choir. We believe in nurturing every member of our school community by including every child in such events, whilst driving the highest standards of performance and creativity possible. Music and drama also combine each year to produce a high quality musical, and we run a recital series across the school calendar to celebrate the work of individual and small group ensembles. Across all four schools, a culture of music is being nurtured both in and out of the classroom, and we are looking for someone dedicated to the growth of their own practice, as well as that of the department and school music culture.
