TEACHER OF MUSIC
Barnard Castle School is looking to appoint an energetic, enthusiastic and inspiring Teacher of Music to join our Music Department in September 2022/January 2023. The successful candidate will be expected to teach in both the Prep and Senior Schools and contribute fully to department life. This is a full-time role.
At the heart of the music department is the firm belief that every child is a musician, and we aim to cultivate a culture in which all pupils enjoy making music on a weekly basis. Every single pupil in the school takes part in weekly singing sessions, and a high proportion of pupils learn one or more instruments. There is a broad range of instrumental and choral ensembles for pupils to take part in, and music is taught at both GCSE and A Level.
The successful applicant will be enthusiastic, well-organised, and keen to motivate and inspire young musicians of all abilities. They will have consistently high expectations of themselves and their pupils and should demonstrate excellent classroom management and pastoral skills. The ability to play the organ and piano to a high standard alongside strong sight-reading skills would be particularly welcome, but candidates with a high level of playing in non-keyboard instruments are still encouraged to apply.
Barnard Castle School has its own salary scale, as well as a generous Pension Scheme and a reduction in school fees. There is also the possibility of on-site accommodation available for single occupancy.
The closing date for applications is 9am on Monday 6th June 2022 at 5pm. Interviews will be held during the week commencing Monday 13th June 2022.
