We seek to appoint a well-qualified, enthusiastic graduate teacher of French and Spanish from February half term to join a highly successful department in a selective school that has been rated by Ofsted as outstanding for over a decade. This is an opportunity to work in a friendly and supportive environment which encourages professional development. We welcome applications from both experienced teachers and NQTs.
Language College Status has had a profound impact on the school and all students take two languages at GCSE from a wide range. Take-up of MFLs at Key Stage 5 International Baccalaureate is always strong. The MFL Department has effective partnerships with other secondary and local primary schools. The department comprises 20 well qualified subject specialists and contributes significantly to the vibrant extra-curricular life of the school through the many trips, clubs and excursions it delivers.
We currently offer French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Mandarin. The successful candidate would ideally have the ability to teach French to Key Stage 5 and Spanish to at least Key Stage 4.
Bexley Grammar School is a heavily oversubscribed, high achieving, coeducational selective school with a fully IB Sixth Form. With a full complement of subject specialist teachers, a rich curriculum and a wealth of extra-curricular activities, we provide an exciting and enriching educational experience for all and many opportunities for career progression in both the academic and pastoral life of the school.
