The Role


The Huili Arts department is comprised of music, performing arts, visual arts and design technology. Students enjoy an arts-rich programme that makes explicit and active our Huili values and the Wellington identity. We work to develop students’ artistic skills, explore traditions in both eastern and western arts and ensure there are regular and varied opportunities for students to express their artistry. We aim to foster a love of the arts that is experiential: the arts are an essential part of the human experience. 


Music learning happens in specialist teaching spaces and is well-resourced and highly regarded. Concerts, recitals and showcases demonstrate Huili students’ impressive artistic skill and musicianship. Music classroom spaces are complemented by a suite of music practice rooms, a state-of-the-art recording studio and specialist instrument storage. 


Music is taught throughout junior high, and Music IGCSE is a popular choice in high school (CIE board). Plans to secure IBDP accreditation are under way, and we anticipate healthy numbers of young musicians who will pursue the Music option within ‘arts’ at IBDP level. 


We seek a music specialist who is a committed, excellent educator and who is an organised and passionate advocate for music and the performing arts. Experience in teaching IGCSE is essential. A track record of teaching/knowledge of Music at IBDP level is highly desirable. 


The Head of Music & Performing Arts is accountable for the music and performing arts programme at Huili School Shanghai and will ensure our students experience a high-quality music and performing arts education that imbues the Huili values and ethos. 


Working closely and collaboratively with the Director of Arts, the Primary Music & Performing Arts Coordinator and the wider arts department, the Head of Music & Performing Arts provides professional leadership and management for the music and performing arts team, driving forward the Huili Arts vision.
