Hugh Christie is a mixed wide ability 11 to 18 high school based in Tonbridge, Kent.

It contains primary, secondary and special academies and is highly inclusive and successful. 

We are delighted to have the opportunity to take on a new Music and Drama Teacher who loves their subject, is eager to engage in research and believes that every student should be given the best chance to succeed. We are looking for a teacher who will bring their own dynamism and positive attitude and become a trusted and valued team member.

The successful candidate will be, or aspire to be, an excellent classroom practitioner.  We are looking for a teacher who is excited by teaching Music in KS3, Drama in KS4 and looking for the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our students, both in the classroom and as part of the school community.  We are also keen to expand Drama into KS5.

We welcome applications from both ECT’s and experienced teachers.
