We are seeking to appoint a high-calibre individual to the post of French Teacher from January 2020 (or as soon as possible thereafter). This is a fixed-term post for the remainder of the current academic year: there may be scope to make this a permanent role thereafter.

The successful candidate is likely to be an outstanding practitioner (whether new to the profession – the School is ISTIP-accredited and NQT induction is offered – or an established teacher) with considerable skill as a French speaker (the ability to offer another language as a club may be an advantage), high standards, a willingness to work hard, and the ability and motivation to be an ambassador for languages at this busy and purposeful co-educational 3-13 Prep School, which is proud to educate the Choristers of Exeter Cathedral.

The School was rated ‘Excellent’ in all areas in its recent ISI inspection (May 2019), and has achieved record scholarship results and its best-ever public exam results over the last two years.

An ‘Information for Candidates’ pack and an application form are attached. For any further enquiries, please contact the Support Staff Services Office Administrator, Mrs Rosie Hankin:

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Tuesday 12th November 2019. Interviews for shortlisted candidates are likely to take place the following week. The School reserves the right to interview and appoint at any time.

Exeter Cathedral School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all employees to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
