Director of Learning
(TLR 2b - £4,531)

Required to start in September 2019

We are a busy, vibrant and happy school – academically successful but driven to achieve much more. We believe that education must maintain a balance between intellect and character. An outstanding education is not either/or. It is both. We also believe that qualifications are what girls get; they do not define who girls are and will play only a part in shaping who they become. 
At the Folkestone School for Girls, girls do not complete an excessive amount of qualifications. This allows them not only time to focus efforts on achieving the very best grades within these, but also time to participate in co-curricular activities and interests, both at school and at home. 
There is time to spend with friends and family and time, too, to just be a child. 
A justifiable balance between intellect and character.

We seek to appoint an exceptional leader and outstanding classroom practitioner for September 2019 to lead and develop Music at The Folkestone School for Girls

We can offer a small but successful department ripe for growing! Our girls are intelligent, curious, driven to do well and keen to participate in the wider opportunities that Music can bring. 
We are keen to expand these opportunities to our big school production!

You will need great people skills, resilience and enthusiasm and a capacity for sustained hard work. Perhaps most importantly, you will be positive, optimistic and have a can-do attitude to anything that will benefit FSG Girls.

You must be well-qualified and passionate about teaching Music . 
You should have a proven track record of examination success at both GCSE and Advanced Level and a real desire to get our girls performing – just for the fun of it!
