Beaumont Leys SchoolLeicester

Teacher of French or Spanish

We are looking for a French or Spanish Teacher to join us from August 2021 or 25th June 2021 for NQTs for one year to cover maternity leave.  

The ability to teach Spanish will be an advantage and we will consider part time applicants.

Beaumont Leys is a highly successful secondary school consistently rated as Good by Ofsted and with a Progress 8 figure of 0.03 (2019) showing that we do very well by our students despite their challenging backgrounds and below expected standard at intake.

Housed in a vibrant and colourful new build designed to replicate our inclusive and positive ethos, Beaumont Leys boasts fantastic facilities and a well utilised sports hall and fitness suite available to all staff.  We consider our catering to be the best with regular staff breakfasts or hand-carved roasts. Our dining room is a wonderful place for staff to eat and catch-up and we even have a Cappuccino machine!!

Our MFL Department is a very successful, dynamic and inspiring department, whose students have a good history of GCSE results. The faculty utilises a creative curriculum with lots of opportunities for our students to engage with the culture of France and Spain.

We believe in the power of our staff.  We work hard to recruit the best and then we support them to be even better.  Our internal promotion record is impressive, even our Head Teacher started with us as a NQT.  We engage extensively with local ITT providers, including Teach First and Researchers into School, provide an excellent NQT support programme and run our own internal BLOTS programme for potential Beaumont Leys Outstanding Teachers.  Our teachers are always learners and as such role model everything we want for our students.

So, if you want a forward thinking, dynamic school to take your career to the next level, we would welcome your application.  Just like Leicester City’s 5000 to 1 shot, we are pushing the boundaries for our students and invite you to be part of our odds beating success!
