About the Music Department

Music is at the heart of Ockbrook and many pupils regularly sing in the school’s two choirs, or perform with the flute group, orchestra, and guitar ensemble. We are seeking teachers who will be able to motivate pupils and build on their existing enthusiasm.

Peripatetic Visiting Music Teachers are appointed by the school but work on a self-employed basis organising finances directly with parents and paying room rental to the School.
