An inspirational and academically outstanding colleague, with well-honed management and classroom skills, is required for April/ September 2017 to lead our German Department with creativity, dynamism, vigour and rigour. German is taught from Year 7 on an equal footing with Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, Latin and French. Around half the cohort will begin with German and three or four sets will continue to IGCSE. We currently prepare pupils for the Edexcel IGCSE, the Pre-U and the IB with extremely healthy numbers throughout (our German Sixth Form cohort is currently 36). The top set in each year group is taught using CLIL methods giving us substantial scope for cross-curricular involvement, and an exciting range of trips and exchanges complements pupils’ learning. The successful candidate will be flexible, innovative, collegiate and able to assist with Oxbridge preparation. A willingness to contribute to co-curricular activities would be expected.
Salary is on the Whitgift Foundation scale (substantially above national scale).
