The position would suit a well-qualified and capable Violin specialist who has an enthusiasm for teaching within the framework of a large co-educational boarding school. As well as giving individual tuition there are many opportunities to perform within the school, including lunchtime and evening concerts throughout the year. The role is part time, one day per week, with some flexibility available as to the day of work.
Music genuinely plays a central role in the life of this remarkable school. The Marching Band accompanies the school into lunch on a daily basis, and the performance opportunities for ensembles large and small, and soloists, are many and varied. We aim to be both inclusive and exclusive: pupils of every age and ability are encouraged and inspired to nurture enjoyment and skill in music; our specialist musicians are offered an individual academic and practical programme, allowing them to fulfil their potential and reach ever-higher standards of music-making.
The Music School is a happy and vibrant place. It is home to eight full-time staff and around 30 enthusiastic and committed Visiting Music Teachers (VMTs), between them teaching over 550 instrumental lessons per week. The vast majority of instrumental lessons are subsidised in accordance with pupil need, and the department provides instruments as necessary. Pupils are customarily dedicated, high-achieving, and polite, and they relish the broad range of opportunities that are available to them at Christ’s Hospital.
Applications should be received by 9am on Monday 19th November and interviews will take place week commencing 26th November.
Christ’s Hospital is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All successful applicants are required to complete an enhanced disclosure application with the DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service).
