Job Description

Pre-Prep and Prep Music Teacher


Required September 2024

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and qualified Music Teacher to join our friendly and professional team.

This is an exciting opportunity for an outstanding individual to inspire happy children within a beautiful rural setting.  The successful candidate/s will be able to demonstrate true enthusiasm for the care and education of young children.

Barrow Hills is a co-ed 2-13 years prep school, offering academic success within a balanced and generous education. We have a strong ethos built on our values of compassion, curiosity and connection, and we are proud to be widely recognised as a welcoming community with a warm, family atmosphere.

Our outcomes speak for themselves, with “very successful students within the formal curriculum and beyond”. The child’s own journey towards this accomplishment is vital, with “pupils’ social development of the highest quality” (Inspectorate 2022). These courteous, sociable and responsible children are at the heart of all that we do; we pride ourselves in valuing every child with skilled educators and individual attention. It’s a very warm community, aspirational but values-driven and grounded.

Our Barrow Hills family also has the unique advantage of governance by the Bridewell Royal Hospital Foundation and close affiliation with our partner school, Kings Edward’s Witley. We benefit from centuries of charitable history, links to the City of London and the generous shared resource an independent senior school provides.

As well as a fun and interesting group of children to motivate and inspire, we can offer job satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment, a competitive salary, cycle to work scheme, free car parking and all meals on duty.

Our aim at Barrow Hills is to inspire happy children.

Children at Barrow Hills are growing to be… Curious about everything; and Brave when meeting new challenges. Scholarly in the way that they learn and in their love of learning. Compassionate towards others, in the School and in the wider world. Generous of spirit, and in sharing their time and their gifts; and Joyful in their appreciation of their families, their friendships, their School and the world. Truthful and true to themselves, and Responsible in what they say and in what they do.
