The Governors are seeking to appoint a Head of Languages. The successful candidate will be a highly motivated and enthusiastic professional and an excellent classroom practitioner, with the ability to teach German to A Level. This would be an ideal opportunity for an ambitious teacher aspiring to middle leadership.

This is an exciting time to join a high-performing department. Languages are an integral part of the St Mark’s curriculum, and we are proud that our EBacc results are the highest of the Harlow schools. German and French are popular GCSE options, with results consistently exceeding the national average, while at A Level, we average ALPS scores of 3 or above. We are bucking national trends in MFL and regularly send pupils to university to study languages. The department runs residential trips to Berlin and Paris and a day-trip to France.

This is a fantastic opportunity for exceptional teachers. You do not need to be a practising Catholic to apply.
