This is an exciting opportunity to shape the delivery of Modern Foreign Languages at this outstanding school, as the governors seek to appoint an aspirational and enthusiastic Head of Department.

We are looking to appoint someone who is keen to develop their leadership skills and advance their career and the successful candidate can expect to be well supported by the staff and senior leadership team.
