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.
Verulam is a high achieving boys’ school with a mixed sixth form, which forms part of the highly successful BeauSandVer consortium. Verulam became an academy in August 2011.
The school has rapidly improving GCSE and A Level results. GCSE results in 2017 were 79% 5 A*-C including English and Maths and positive VA at KS4 and 5. Verulam pupils were in the top 8% of boys for Progress 8 nationally. Verulam places great emphasis on extra-curricular activity and engagement and benefits from outstanding attendance.
Verulam School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
Informal visits to the school are highly encouraged. If you wish to have a tour or discussion, please contact Kelly Bonass, Head’s PA, on email@example.com or on 01727 754102 for further details of the post.
