CURRICULUM LEADER FOR Modern Foreign Languages
Required September 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter
This is a fantastic opportunity for an excellent classroom practitioner with successful experience in teaching French up to KS5 and Spanish to KS3/4 to lead our high performing Languages department. The successful candidate will lead the work of a very experienced team of teachers as well as promote languages through the enrichment programme and community languages.
In May 2017 OFSTED judged us as a ‘Good’ school. Students’ outcomes (current standards and exam results) are good and often outstanding. Progress is well above average. Teaching across the school is good and in some cases outstanding. The curriculum is broad and balanced and there are many extra-curricular opportunities for students. The school community is harmonious, with good relationships between students and staff.
