St. Gregory’s Catholic High School seek to appoint a Teacher of Music with the opportunity to include a secondment as Subject Leader of Music in addition with the appointment as a result of the current subject leader being seconded to the senior management team for 4 terms.  Both secondments are with a view to being made permanent.


This is an exciting opportunity to join one of the highest performing schools in Warrington and the Liverpool Archdiocese to work with pupils and staff who have a love of learning. St Gregory’s has expanded has increased its population and is well oversubscribed with a waiting list for admission in every year group.


In November 2019, Ofsted inspected our school under the new inspection framework and graded the school as ‘Good’ in every area and the school was also recently graded as ‘Outstanding’ in our Section 48 Inspection of the Catholic Life provision of the school.


The opening paragraph from the Ofsted report reads: “Pupils at St Gregory’s are confident and welcoming to visitors, they like each other”. There is a strong sense of community across the school which reflects the school vision. One pupil said “we are cared about as individuals, but because everyone cares, that makes us all one”


The Music Department consists of two full time teachers and four peripatetic teachers and is hugely successful with 95% of pupils achieving grade 5 and above in 2018 and 100% achieving grade 6 and above in 2019.  The Music department is one of the highest performing Music departments in the country, having received the bronze and silver awards from the “Incorporated Society of Musicians” for results in the top 5% nationally.  Our facilities are outstanding and in 2018, we moved into a brand-new purpose-built extension, consisting of two fully air-conditioned classrooms, a recording studio and two practice rooms.  Both classrooms are equipped with 24 workstations, each of which has a keyboard, a PC with Cubase software, speakers and headphones.  The Recording Studio has a range of microphones, an electric drum kit and a midi piano.  We have a set of ukuleles and guitars for whole class ‘Musical Futures’ style lessons.

 

This is a high-profile department and we are actively involved in the extra-curricular and liturgical life of the school.  We have a Choir, which sings regularly at concerts and Masses as well as many guitarists, drummers and pianists who perform in bands or as soloists.  We work closely with the Drama Department, staging whole school Productions in our Theatre, most recently “Little Shop of Horrors”.  Music Technology is a significant part of the curriculum and a knowledge of the Cubase range of software would be an advantage.  We also run after school ‘Music Tech’ clubs for pupils to use the facilities and complete their composition and sequencing projects.  The ability to accompany pupils on the piano or on the guitar and a knowledge of liturgical music is desirable but not essential.  At KS4 we follow the AQA GCSE Music specification.


Further details and application forms are available from www.stgregoryshigh.com. Please return completed application forms to shutton@stgregoryshigh.com. Specific exam board and curriculum information is available on our website and all other enquiries and informal visits can be arranged via the Head of Department, Mr L Mackenzie at lmackenzie@stgregoryshigh.com.
