We are seeking to appoint a well qualified and enthusiastic teacher of Music to join a vibrant, diligent and supportive faculty where teachers are committed to developing a range of developmental opportunities in the arts.  This is an excellent opportunity for a specialist who is newly qualified or a more experienced teacher to deliver Music to pupils of all abilities in all Key Stages.  The ability to offer a second subject would be advantageous. A permanent part-time position may be available for the right candidate.

We offer outstanding provision in the performing arts and links to the community.  We are committed to developing our staff through first class induction and high-quality professional development.  As a result, a large proportion of JMHS staff have achieved promotion to middle and senior leadership positions.

JMHS was last inspected by OFSTED in November 2022 who confirmed our good grading and whose comments included:

  • Pupils behave well. They are polite to their teachers and considerate of their peers.
  • Parents rate teachers’ high expectations because they push pupils to do more. Many say teachers go ‘above and beyond’ for their children.
  • Pupils can do unusual stuff at this exciting school.
  • School leaders have constructed a rich and engaging curriculum.
