Winchester College seeks to appoint a well-qualified, innovative and enthusiastic Teacher of Modern Languages who has the experience and the ability to teach French to GCSE and Pre-U level, plus a second language to at least GCSE level.
French, German, Spanish and Russian are taught to GCSE and Pre-U level, and Mandarin is taught to GCSE. Every boy in the school takes at least one modern language (either French or German) to GCSE, but many study two and some three. There are currently over 100 boys studying a modern language in the sixth form. Every year a number of boys apply to read Modern Languages at university, including at Oxford and Cambridge, where the department is very well represented.
The College, which was founded in 1382, is a boys’ boarding school of 700 pupils. We are committed to the highest standards of academic excellence, first-class pastoral care and the maintenance of a broad and balanced liberal education for all our pupils. Through our non-examined general cultural studies programme (known as Division) we offer an approach to education which develops an intelligent and critical awareness of the world, strong communication skills and a confident ability to think independently and with originality.
This post will suit teachers of the highest calibre who will relish the challenge of working with able and articulate pupils in a historic site of unparalleled architectural beauty in the heart of Winchester.
All our full-time teachers are expected to act as tutors in one of the eleven boarding houses, thereby making a significant contribution to the pastoral care of our pupils. In addition, the successful applicant will be expected to contribute in some capacity to our sports and co-curricular programme.
