Head of Department

A Catholic college located in the picturesque county of North Yorkshire is seeking to recruit a Music Teacher for a Head of Strings position for an immediate start.

The candidate must have excellent knowledge in this area but the college is open to considering candidates without the experience to lead a section if they are strong enough musicians and have the potential to develop leadership skills.

It can be a one or two year contract with the possibility of being extended.

This is a full boarding school with day school provision which provides a curriculum that is designed to provide a broad and balanced education for students where all are given the opportunity to study a wide range of subjects.

In it's most recent inspection by the Independent Schools Inspectorate, the report states that the college is highly effective in meeting its aims.

Leadership and management is excellent with great strengths in spiritual, moral and social development, boarding and pastoral care.

The high standard of teaching helps pupils appreciate the value of learning and teachers are secure in their knowledge and understanding of the subject matter being taught and positive relationships between teachers and pupils are a particularly strong feature.

Pupils are very well educated and they display good, and frequently, very high levels of knowledge and understanding across their subject areas.

Behaviour is exceptional and they work co-operatively, support each other and show great respect and loyalty to their teachers.

There are approximately 600 pupils of mixed gender aged 12 to 19 on the teaching roll with 260 of these pupils enrolled in the sixth form.

The school offers an extensive provision for extra curricular activities which include debating, chess, karate and many sports clubs.

The school is set in picturesque surroundings in a beautiful valley with many scenic nearby points of interest.
