Can you help our students to be at the leading edge of language learning? Our dynamic and expanding teaching team needs a language specialist able to teach French or Spanish up to A level, and up to GCSE in the other, inspiring students of all ages with a love of learning languages.
Royal Russell is an HMC/IAPS co-educational school with over 1000 pupils between the ages of 3 and 18, situated on a beautiful green campus of 110 acres in the Shirley Hills near Croydon. We have over 150 boarding students in the Senior School, and are proud of our day and boarding facilities that rank amongst the best in the South of England. Our pupils, parents and staff experience a warm and friendly environment with strong pastoral care for every pupil alongside a comprehensive co-curricular and enrichment programme. We aim to build on this alongside improving academic success to continue to be the family school of choice in South London. The Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI) has recently judged the school as ‘excellent’ in all areas.
Languages is one of the strengths of the school, with students being taught French and Spanish from Year 7, with German adding to the mix from Year 9. At KS4 we follow the IGCSE syllabus with all students taking at least one language, and many taking up the opportunity to study multiple languages. French, Spanish, German and Japanese are all established through to A level, and our students benefit from specialist language assistants as well as numerous overseas visits and exchanges.
We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified, innovative and inspiring full-time or part-time teacher (0.6 or 0.8) with passion, enthusiasm and outstanding subject knowledge, committed to achieving high standards within a successful department who is able to teach to A* at A level in either French or Spanish and can offer the other at Key Stage 3 and GCSE as well. This role requires experience and dynamism, teamwork and dedication, and an enthusiasm for the subject.
A willingness to contribute to the extra-curricular programme and support the pastoral life of our school is essential.
The Royal Russell pay scale which is above SNS includes a generous allowance for suitably qualified and experienced staff. Allowances are available for specific pastoral and academic responsibilities.
We offer excellent benefits which include free lunch, free car parking, use of on-site tennis courts, gym and swimming pool. Staff are also entitled to 50% discount on School fees (pro-rata for part time/term time staff).
