Head of Music (Maternity Cover from Sept 2019)

£33,000 – £52,000 depending on experience

We are looking for a talented and enthusiastic musician to cover for our Head of Music when she is away on maternity leave from September 2019 for one year. You will be teaching children between the ages of 4 to 11, as well as rehearsing with and conducting our choirs and orchestras.

Ravenscourt Park Preparatory School
W6 0SL
Contract Type
Fixed-Term Contract
Closing Date
22nd April 2019

At RPPS, music plays a central role in the life of our school: we have a number of choirs, orchestras and ensembles running throughout the 4 – 11 year age range and all of these groups have the opportunity to perform at a range of concerts and assemblies throughout the year.

The successful candidate will be leading a thriving music department which comprises the Head of Music, an additional part-time music teacher and 15 peripatetic staff who provide over 250 individual music lessons each week. The Head of Music will be confident at teaching music throughout the Primary age range, conducting orchestras and choirs, leading whole school assembly singing practices and accompanying instrumentalists on the piano.

Ravenscourt Park Preparatory School is a successful IAPS Preparatory School in West London providing education of the highest quality for 420 boys and girls aged from 4 to 11 years. The School was last inspected by ISI in March 2016 and received the grade of ‘excellent’ in all categories.

A formal teaching qualification is desirable, but not essential: we would also consider applications from those who have experience of working with the 4-11 age group in a different context (such as running out of school music choirs or orchestras). We are looking for someone who is passionate about music, and who can communicate this to children so that they develop a lifelong love of participating in, and appreciating, music across a wide range of genres. If that sounds like you, please get in touch with us!

How to Apply

If this position is of interest to you, please email Mrs Kate Jason, Head’s PA with your CV: . Shortlisted candidates will be asked to complete our own application form prior to coming for interview.

Ravenscourt Park Preparatory School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and we expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applications will be subject to checks with past employer and an enhanced check with the Disclosure and Barring Service. Our safeguarding and safer recruitment policies can be found on our website
