This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic and committed individual to join a flourishing and well organised faculty. We are seeking an able linguist to drive standards higher and further develop Languages’ role within the school. The post would be suitable for an ambitious teacher wishing to take on responsibility. 

Languages are taught in a suite of six dedicated classrooms which are all equipped with IWBs. In Year 7 all pupils study French with the majority starting Spanish in Year 8. Pupils opt for their GCSE language at the end of Year 8. Results, in both French and Spanish are consistently good. At Key stage 5 we teach as part of the BeauSandVer consortium and pupils may study French or Spanish to A Level.
