The Royal School is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and talented Subject Leader of MFL to join our highly motivated and experienced languages team. The aptitude to teach a wide range of abilities from ages 11-18 is essential. We are looking for someone who can lead French, German and Spanish to GCSE and A level. Ambition and passion for the subject is crucial. Applications are invited from experienced teachers to join our highly committed, outstanding team.
The languages department is at an important stage in its growth and development with driving the highest standards further forward. With a recently appointed Faculty Head, our team of teachers strive to inspire and engage through using a wide range of pedagogical approaches; enabling our pupils to enjoy the benefits of a creative and innovative learning environment.
The Department is housed in 3 rooms. In year 7 pupils study all three languages and then opt for two languages in year 8. As from September 2017 pupils will be starting GCSEs in year 9. Regular pupil tracking is carried out based on the four MFL skills. MFL is an enthusiastic and well-established department who seek to offer the best opportunities for students which include trips abroad, day visits, competitions and much more. MFL is a compulsory subject at GCSE level and we are looking for someone who will partake in an active role with these new developments.
The Royal School is at an exciting time of development. The new free school is an all-through (Reception to Y13) ‘independent’ school without day fees whilst still providing excellent boarding at affordable fees. Alongside the growth in pupil numbers, there will be an expansion in the curriculum, enrichment activities and improved facilities, enabling us to extend and enhance still further the range of opportunities for all our young people.
The Royal School has achieved excellent academic results throughout its history and has an outstanding reputation for nurturing and developing confident, well-disciplined and successful individuals who progress successfully to the next stage of their life and career. We relish this next phase in its existence which enables us to review and build on our current success in preparing our young people for a rapidly evolving world.
