Tradewind are recruiting! Are you looking for you next role teaching Music in Newham?

If you think you have the potential to work as an outstanding Teacher of Music, then Tradewind would love to hear from you!

This is an exceptional school with a vision to provide a world class education for young people in Newham. This client is a mixed comprehensive school at the heart of its community in a centrally located, inner London borough.

Last year, Ofsted found that the school has maintained the good quality of education and 'made strong progress in many aspects of the school's provision 'since our last inspection. Many strengths were highlighted, including how students are 'courteous and articulate' and 'say they enjoy school and value the wide range of opportunities they are given'. This client is very proud that Ofsted recognises their high aspirations, the hard work and good behaviour of students, and the dedication and commitment of staff.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an exceptional teacher of Music to join a dynamic team which is growing in order to enhance the music provision across our school community. This client is a successful community comprehensive, with specialisms in Music, and provides a broad and rich curriculum for all its students. As part of its music specialism this client has sought ways to further engage with its local primaries. From September, the Music team be delivering whole class instrumental lessons to some of these primaries and as a result the successful candidate will have a wonderful opportunity to teach at KS2 and KS3 level.

The Music team are ambitious for students, staff and local community. This client is committed to continuing to develop high quality music education with high levels of student participation. The school benefits from a partnership with the Music in Secondary Schools Trust, and recently participated in a 5th anniversary concert with other MiSST schools at the London Palladium. The department also works very closely with Newham Music, the local Music Education Hub, to offer joint provision and improve access to music for students across the borough.

The successful candidates will join a very strong team, with three other teachers and a core group of peripatetic teachers who are committed to working with the school and with our feeder primaries. Tradewind are actively seeking highly skilled and dedicated musicians and teachers who will work with talented and motivated team to ensure that the Music education at this school is genuinely world-class.

Excellent instrumental skills on strings, woodwind or brass are essential; so too are the commitment, subject knowledge and high expectations which will lead to students achieving top grades in this subject. Willingness to work collaboratively and to support a wide range of extracurricular activities, including residential trips and high profile visits and performances, is essential. Expertise in a string instrument would be an advantage; however, we welcome applicants from all musical backgrounds who are open to a challenge and will bring other expertise and skills to the team.

The school benefits from a range of external partnerships including becoming the first partner school in the Music in Secondary Schools Trust, supported by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Music Foundation and the Charles Wolfson Charitable Trust.
