We are seeking to appoint a creative, energetic and inspirational teacher of Music to deliver lessons across the age and ability range in our Pre-Prep.

As an accomplished pianist you will accompany choirs, assemblies and pupil performances as required. Working closely with the Head of Music in the Prep school, you will liaise with our dedicated team of peripatetic teachers in the co-ordination and delivery of weekly instrumental lessons; monitoring children’s progress and offering appropriate support and advice. You will be expected to work closely with the class teachers and dovetail music lessons to their curriculum plans.

As part of the St Michael’s teaching staff, you will have responsibility for the safeguarding and welfare of the pupils in your care.

You will be highly organised and confident in dealing with parents. You will have bags of initiative and will be a reliable, positive, team player. In short you will want to make us all sing!
