School Overview: This international school has attracted regional and worldwide attention with its unique model for integrating British, French, German and High School sections in terms of their curricula, administration, finance buildings and facilities. The school has grown steadily since its establishment and now has 1700 students of some 50 nationalities with a target enrollment of around 1800. The school operates from two campuses with well-appointed, modern facilities and has a total staff of around 400. Teaching staff come predominately from the UK, France and Germany with smaller numbers from other European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and USA. Class sizes are maximum of 22 in the British Sections with smaller classes across the High School and in the IB Diploma and French and German Sections in particular. The mission of the school is to provide educational excellence and European culture and values within the context of Taiwanese society.

Location Overview: The people of Taiwan are extremely friendly and as a city, Taipei is a relatively safe place and although a bustling city the school is located in the northern fringes of the city where the pace is less busy. You can use the MRT (high speed rail)buses and taxis confidently. English is more widely spoken amongst the younger proportion of the population but if you are looking lost most people will try to help you! Learning a few words of Chinese goes down very well with the locals. There is a lot going on in Taipei and most parents and staff lead an active social life either in the northern suburb of Tienmu (close to where the school is located) or downtown where there are many nightclubs, concert halls, theatres and restaurants.

Requirements: The school is looking for a Primary Music Specialist, particularly someone who is comfortable with developing EYFS and KS1 music. The position would also have KS2 opportunities and whole school CCA (choir / orchestra) commitments.

  • A minimum of 2 years of post-qualification experience
  • UK curriculum experience is highly desirable though not essential.
  • You will need to be a creative thinker with high levels of integrity and an appreciation of working with diverse cultures.
  • The school wants to see a passion for student learning and a can do attitude as well as a desire to settle and make a longer term impact in this great school.


  • Salary from approx. 32000 to 49000GBP per annum after tax
  • Excellent accommodation allowance
  • Free flights for applicant and dependents
  • Private healthcare for applicant and dependents
  • Shipping allowance
  • One month's bonus per year of service
  • Free child places at the school for up to two dependents of school age
