Each Nord Anglia Education school is unique in character and designed to meet the needs of its community. We are united by our philosophy, to be ambitious for our students, our people and our family of schools. We believe that being part of our family of 56 schools gives them a special advantage. Working together, we can achieve more than we can individually. Our schools have access to a wide range of resources and support to enhance their success. We also create unique opportunities to benefit our students and people, such as the Global Campus, Nord Anglia University, and our collaborations with The Juilliard School, MIT, UNICEF and King’s College London.

About the role

Join our fast-paced international environment and you will lead a dedicated team of language specialists across the primary and secondary age and ability ranges within a curriculum founded on the National Curriculum for England, GCSEs/IGSCEs and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

A strong ambassador for the school, you will be able to develop new ways to engage students, teachers and parents with the wider school and Nord Anglia Education community. Your strong motivation and communication skills will also enable you to create a feeling of energy, excitement and personal investment within the classroom. You will also be able to meet visa-related restrictions for Hungary, which typically involves holding a European passport.
