Dunottar is a co-educational school for pupils aged 11-18 set in extensive grounds of 15 acres on the outskirts of Reigate. With a new Headmaster in September 2017, the school is on a very exciting journey. The school is experiencing fast growth in pupil numbers and is currently in the process of a £6.6Million capital development programme to build a new Sixth Form Centre and a whole school Assembly Hall to accommodate future growth.
Dunottar is a great place to work, with a team of highly professional and committed teachers and support staff. We incorporate best practice from independent schools and academies right across the United Learning Group, whilst retaining our unique, friendly ethos in Reigate where pupils are nurtured to make significant personal progress at the same time as achieving excellent academic results. United Learning is an outstanding organisation which prides itself on providing a working and learning environment which encourages ‘the best in everyone’. You will join a network of staff belonging to 60 other schools, with opportunities to engage with fellow professionals which far exceed what one school could achieve on its own. Personal development and career opportunities are excellent. They will also play an active role in the extensive and varied co-curricular program, both during the working week and some weekends.
The Modern Foreign Languages Department is a forward thinking department which seeks to enthuse the pupils through outstanding and innovative teaching. Pupils study French and Spanish at Key Stage 3. At GCSE pupils take at least one language and follow the AQA course and at A Level the AQA course is followed. At Key stage 4 and above, pupils have the opportunity to have a conversation lesson with a language assistant.
The MFL department runs a number of trips and enrichment opportunities including established links with partner schools in Madrid and Angers, and a desire to be involved in these aspects of the life of the school is essential for the successful candidate. We are a friendly, welcoming and supportive department which achieves excellent results through innovation but also collaboration and a collegiate approach. We work as a team and very much look forward to continue growing as such.
We seek to appoint an outstanding teacher; one who has the vision, enthusiasm and energy to help develop further the work of the department, alongside contributing to the wider life of the school. The post offers an exciting challenge for someone with initiative and imagination, who can teach Spanish up to A Level and French. Applications are invited from well-qualified and talented teachers for this post.
