Head of French (L4-7)


An opportunity has arisen for an outstanding teacher of French, to lead and further develop the MFL team at Dean Trust Wigan. Our ambition is of the majority of pupils to accredit in a foreign language and the leader of this area will be key to engaging pupils in language learning.

Dean Trust Wigan is part of The Dean Trust, which has a number of very high performing schools and a proven track record of sustained improvement.  The Dean Trust’s core values include traditional academic education, excellent discipline and respect, resulting in improved attainment and progress. “Believe, Achieve, Succeed” has been embraced by all of the schools in The Dean Trust.  

The Governing Body is now seeking to appoint a teacher with the potential to be an outstanding leader of French.

• enable pupils to achieve the highest possible standards

• work motivationally within a team of staff

• raise attainment in MFL at all levels

• inspire students to love the subject through outstanding teaching

• work effectively with staff, parents and the community

The successful candidate will be required to have experience of teaching KS3 and KS4 and have an understanding of new curriculum developments for teaching MFL.

We are highly committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all pupils and we expect all our staff to share this commitment. Enhanced DBS vetting procedures are required for all posts.
