We are looking to appoint a specialist teacher of MFL to join our existing team at CHS South.  The successful candidate will join  a department that delivers a vibrant & creative curriculum that is relevant and engaging, leading to successful outcomes for the diverse range of students in our cohort.  The successful candidate will teach French & Spanish as part of the KS3 Curriculum and eventually KS4 GCSE French & Spanish as the school grows.

This is an exciting opportunity for an exceptional candidate to work with the CHS South team in developing our brand new 11-16 Secondary School.  CHS South was opened in September 2018 to allow more young people in our community to access the successful model developed at our oversubscribed sister school, Chorlton High School.  This model ensures we provide an education built on the values of offering every young person we encounter the skills necessary to craft a creative, happy & successful future.  These values are articulated in our school intent below:

CREATIVE: An education where imagination, curiosity and resilience enable us to ignite our learning.

HAPPY: A shared belief that optimism, empathy and responsibility are the foundations for a respectful, safe and inclusive community.

SUCCESSFUL: Individuals who are ready to learn, practise being reflective, and are motivated to become champions.

We also ensure the young people at CHS South have access to a broad and forward thinking enrichment curriculum. We are well positioned to offer a diverse and engaging sports curriculum through our fantastic relationships with the vast array of sports providers in our community. Furthermore, our expertise and understanding of the creative arts, an industry growing faster in our local community than anywhere in the UK outside London, ensures our young people are provided with the opportunities to develop and hone their skills in order to become the next generation of creative trailblazers.  

We are committed to recruiting and retaining outstanding practitioners onto our teaching and our support teams to ensure that our students achieve their very best and are led by happy, dedicated and highly skilled staff. As part of this commitment we ensure ongoing training and personalised development for all staff. We have an exciting calendar of CPD training events; active and motivating sessions focused on teaching and learning, student attainment and staff well-being.

We offer a wide range of other benefits to staff including: excellent pension schemes (Teachers Pension for Teaching Staff, Greater Manchester Pension Fund for support staff) and cycle to work scheme. We also have a strong focus on staff wellbeing, providing support for healthcare costs plus access to counselling and 24-hour telephone healthcare advice through the BUPA Health Cash Plan.

CHS South is part of the Prospere Trust, a strong Multi-Academy Trust with a growing number of Secondary and Special schools that provide excellent opportunities for all students based on our commitment to academic rigour and exceptional opportunities for the young people within our academies.
