About the School - Head of Music
From September 2017, this well-run community school situated in the heart of Tottenham, Haringey is looking to appoint Head of Department who can lead the development of music as a subject throughout the school. The current post holder is retiring after 6 years in the role and leaves the department after having achieved both their highest GCSE and A-level results. This school is a calm place where the students enjoy learning. Behaviour is good because the teachers work hard to create lessons that engage and inspire. The surrounding area is one of high unemployment and many of the students that join the school have lower than national average ability in most subjects. Music is highly popular though as many of the students see the subject to express themselves and a level playing field in terms of their starting point. In terms of equipment and facilities this school is hard to beat. Large bright classrooms and a dedicated music studio with recording equipment make up the teaching areas, while the school has invested heavily in music equipment and software. The music department is 3 teachers strong and courses are offered through to A-Level. The school holds regular music festivals and concerts for parents and the local community - something they will be looking to continue with the support of the new HOD.

About the Role - Head of Music
The School is looking for a HOD who will lead and develop by example. An excellent teacher primarily who is willing to share their expertise with their colleagues will be best fit. The school offers ongoing CPD and career progression opportunities based on performance.
