This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and committed individual to join a flourishing and well organised faculty. We are seeking an able linguist to drive standards higher and further develop Languages’ role within the school.
Languages are taught in a suite of six dedicated classrooms which are all equipped with IWBs. In Year 7 all pupils study French with the majority starting Spanish in Year 8. Pupils opt for their GCSE language at the end of Year 8. Results, in both French and Spanish are good. At Key stage 5 we teach as part of the BeauSandVer consortium and pupils may study French or Spanish to A Level.
Verulam is a high achieving boys’ school with a mixed Sixth Form, which forms part of the highly successful BeauSandVer consortium.
The school has good GCSE and A Level results and achieved a Progress 8 score of +0.19. It was judged to be a Good school in all categories by Ofsted in October 2018.
Verulam School is a member of the Alban Academies Trust, together with Sandringham and Ridgeway schools. We work in a multi-academy trust to share best practice, deliver joint training, promote the highest of expectations and raise achievement for all students. Our motto is ‘Educational Excellence for Everyone’. The trust offers significant opportunities for career development of staff at all levels within our organisation.
Verulam School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Informal visits to the school are highly encouraged. If you wish to have a tour or discussion, please contact Kelly Bonass, Head’s PA, on email@example.com or on 01727 754102 for further details of the post.
