The governors at Sedgehill School wish to appoint a number of peripatetic string, woodwind and brass teachers. Successful candidates will be employed by the school and be part of the Music in Secondary Schools Trust - the Andrew Lloyd Webber Programme.
We will be launching the programme in September 2014 where each Y7 student will be given a stringed instrument when they join Sedgehill School. They will receive a group lesson each week within curriculum time and peripatetic tutors teach small groups under the direction of the class music teacher. Some students will then choose to join a music specialist school and will select another instrument.
These positions are an opportunity for talented and accomplished strings, woodwind and brass players to develop their teaching skills through working under the guidance of the class teacher and within this ground breaking programme.
Sedgehill School is a very successful performing arts specialist school and we are passionate about the role that music can play in broadening the horizons, and improving the achievement of our students. Our music foundation has always provided high quality, free instrumental tuition leading to top quality performances including those at national competitions and international tours. Vocalize, our award winning school choir, frequently performs at key London venues and two students have been signed with recording contracts following this success.
The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

The closing date for applications is Monday 30th June 2014. Interviews will be held shortly afterwards
