Employment Opportunities



The Yehudi Menuhin School is a leading specialist music school with an international outlook, offering highly individualised music education to some 86 musicians. Pupils are aged between aged 8 and 19 years old, the great majority of whom board at the school. They receive both an academic and a musical education at the school, and each pupil has their own individual schedule designed to suit their particular needs. Present pupils include a number of prize-winners in various international competitions, and the vast majority of students go on to conservatoires and universities to study music when they graduate.

Set in 18 acres of beautiful grounds in Stoke d’Abernon, Surrey, the School provides a nurturing environment where pupils pursue their love of music, within a broader curriculum, with like-minded young people from all over the world. This small boarding and day school has a family atmosphere and everyone knows and supports one another.
