Wollaston School is a large, rural community school located in a village setting about 15 minutes drive from Northampton. The student intake draws on nearby villages and the towns of Earls Bar-ton, Wellingborough, and Irchester. We have over 1400 students on roll with approximately 240 students in the Sixth Form. The school is over-subscribed. Wollaston School was rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted in April 2017.
We are seeking to appoint a dynamic and inspirational Teacher of Languages to join our team of highly committed linguists. Candidates must have the ability to teach French & German at KS3 and 4, and one language to A-Level. Newly qualified teachers are welcome to apply and we offer a fully supported programme, including regular subject specific mentoring and whole school training. The successful candidate will be well-qualified and committed to ensuring excellent outcomes for every student.
MFL is taught as a core subject at KS3, and is currently optional at KS4 . We are recruiting with a view to increasing uptake. Students who choose a language do well at Wollaston, and both French and German are among the highest performing subjects at GCSE in the school. We currently offer both French and German at A-level and students achieve well in these subjects. The school has a long-running partnership with Max-Planck Gymnasium in Bremen and we run regular trips to both France and Germany.
The MFL team is comprised of 5 teachers, and is housed in a dedicated teaching area with its own Sanako language lab. This is a department where the right candidate would have the scope to develop their practice using the latest research and methodology in a supportive environment. This is an exciting opportunity for an innovative and ambitious individual committed to achieving the very best for all students in a supportive school with a dedicated team of teachers and a fantastic cohort of students.
We offer a comprehensive employee benefits package including support of the Teacher Pension Scheme, Cycle to Work Scheme, Discounted Onsite Gym Membership and Onsite Parking. Wollaston School is a fantastic place to work and study. Informal visits are welcomed if you would like to see us in action and to learn more about us prior to your application.
