Teacher of Spanish

Burscough Priory AcademyLancashire

We are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate teacher of Spanish to join our close-knit team who actively support each other to ensure that all of our students and staff thrive. 

Burscough Priory Academy joined the Endeavour Learning Trust in September 2018 and has thrived as part of a successful family of schools. Burscough Priory students are hardworking, enthusiastic and keen to work with their teachers and the support staff to get the very best out of every day at school. Since 2018, there has been rapid and sustained improvement at our school which is firmly rooted in the existing good practice evident at Burscough Priory Academy.  Our staff are wholly optimistic and completely committed to continuing to make the school the very best it can be - this is a school that is going places.

For our staff, we are firmly committed to ensuring this is a job that can be enjoyed, where everyone can flourish because we pay close attention to work/life balance. Across the Trust, we continue to develop strategies that take a common-sense approach to those aspects of the role that could become an unnecessary burden on workload - these include feedback, marking and centralised detentions. 

Our Teaching School is the beating heart of our Trust and from right across the Trust our teachers learn together. They share their practice, encourage and support each other to get the best out of the working day. The candidate will have opportunities to work with other colleagues in the Teaching School to support the development of the curriculum and teaching in Spanish across our family of schools.

In our schools we have a relentless focus on excellence, expect the highest standards of behaviour but we have a pragmatic emphasis on the balance between challenge and support, high expectation and nurture. And this counts for students and staff, teaching and non-teaching, so that our schools develop a family ethos, where everyone wants the best for everyone else.

In our team, our teachers are committed to continuously improving the classroom experience of our students with a genuine desire to improve their life chances.

If you think this sounds like a place you would like to develop your career and your love of teaching then you can apply online via TES.

As part of the interview you will be asked to plan and deliver a lesson and then discuss it with the panel.

Prospective candidates are welcome to contact the school for a telephone conversation or visit prior to the final application please contact Mrs E McCallum, Operations Manager 01704 893259 or at vacancies@burscoughprioryacademy.org to organise a convenient time.


The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment
