Music Tutor Fellow (Strings Specialists)
Last year, King Solomon Academy was the highest performing non-selective school in the country. We are redefining what is possible and we are seeking an exceptional teacher ready to join our high-performing school and contribute to our school’s mission. This is a unique opportunity to be part of showing what education can achieve. KSA is a rare example of a genuinely all-through school, with one curriculum, culture, staff body and leadership team supporting our pupils’ journey from nursery to university.
One of our most ambitious goals is for all of our pupils to become highly accomplished and successful musicians as part of our string orchestra. We believe all pupils, with the right role models, expectations and teaching can learn to love and excel at playing a string instrument. As a key part of the string programme, Music Tutor Fellows provide instrument teaching and tutoring to our pupils from aged 7 to aged 18
For prospective candidates this role presents a unique offer. You will be part of a ground-breaking project which aims to show that all pupils, irrespective of background, can learn a string instrument to orchestra standard. The role will allow candidates to rapidly develop their small group instruction skills and also be developed as ensemble and whole orchestra teachers through coaching from expert leaders.
The role of Music Tutor Fellow is perfect for someone who enjoys teaching their string instrument but wants to be part of an orchestra programme rather than teaching isolated instrumental lessons. The role would also appeal to someone who would like to become a music teacher in the future, acting as a springboard and training ground for those who want to learn how to teach and build transformational relationships with pupils. For these candidates, we are able to offer a very clear pathway of progression into the teaching profession. The Ark Schools School Direct training programme provides a clear route for progression. We are growing a pipeline of great teachers who started with us as Tutor Fellows.
