Director of Music

Deadline Date: 22nd April 2024

We are looking to appoint a creative and inspirational Director of Music who has the ambition to continue to strengthen the School’s musical reputation in the local area and beyond, the experience to ensure that pupils have the highest levels of academic teaching and the confidence and creativity to provide rich and varied extracurricular opportunities. The successful candidate will lead the department including the current team of staff and VMTs. Whilst the Director of Music’s primary responsibility is providing a curricular and extracurricular musical programme for the Senior School (years 7-13), the role also involves overseeing the progression of music across the whole school, working closely with the music coordinator in Prep School. The Director of Music is responsible for providing music for a variety of School events as well as a programme of performances throughout the year. A desire to embrace partnership projects within the community is an important part of the Director of Music role.

The successful applicant will take up the post either September 2024 or January 2025.

Applications should be e-mailed to the Headmaster, as soon as possible and no later than midday on Monday, 22nd April. The school reserves the right to interview before the closing date if appropriate to the context of the field. Email: head@yarmschool.org.
