We are seeking to appoint a dynamic teacher of Music to join our Expressive Arts and Physical Education Faculty.  The successful candidate will have a firm commitment to raising whole-school achievement; have a professional approach to staff development; high expectations; and a determination to succeed.

At Sir Graham Balfour we offer:

  • An ever growing reputation in the local community which has resulted in the school being consistently oversubscribed in an area where student rolls are falling.
  • A very positive climate for learning.
  • A first rate learning environment. We are housed in buildings completed in 2002 and financed via a PFI initiative.
  • Innovative 14-19 collaboration and an increasing roll at KS5.
  • A commitment to inclusive practice.
