Kenton School is at the cutting edge of modern education. With just under 1,800 students, we are amongst the largest schools in the North East; however, despite our size, we pride ourselves on retaining a family atmosphere and in ensuring that we cater for the needs of all our students, recognising their special gifts or talents.
A vacancy has arisen for a talented and inspiring Spanish specialist to join our highly supportive team, teaching Key Stages 3 and 4. The role will also involve teaching a small amount of French at KS3. This is a maternity leave cover post expected to last until December 2019.
To be successful, you will have:
- a proven track record of effective training or teaching practice underpinned by a passion for the subject;
- a broad base of subject knowledge and the ability to apply a range of teaching and learning strategies;
- excellent analytical skills with the ability to use data and assessment for learning effectively to inform practice;
- the ability to work effectively with all students, engaging them through exciting yet challenging lessons and embedding a culture of positive behaviour for learning.
Most importantly, you will be committed to our school ethos of ‘all different, all equal,’ instilling high expectations in all our students to enable them to achieve their potential, regardless of the barriers they face.
In return, we offer fantastic opportunities to committed and enthusiastic teachers and tremendous developmental possibilities due to our success, size, facilities and a forward-thinking management and staff, working together to offer the best available chances for our students.
Closing date: Noon on 14th January 2019.
