Head of German or Teacher of German

Chelmsford County High School for Girls is one of the most successful girls’ selective schools in the country.  This is, therefore, an ideal opportunity for a well-qualified teacher of German to gain experience teaching some highly motivated and able students.   

We are looking to appoint either a Head of German (full-time) or a teacher of the subject (for the teacher of German, we may consider part-time).  It is an exciting opportunity to join/lead a thriving and dynamic department.  We are seeking a committed classroom practitioner, who is passionate about German, has the ability to drive students to great success, and is willing to contribute to the development of the subject and the wider life of the school.

All students study German throughout KS3 and it is a very popular option at both GCSE and Advanced level.  We deliver the Edexcel (9-1) GCSE and Edexcel A level.  Examination results are excellent throughout. Students benefit from a modern suite of classrooms and a specialist language laboratory - a 21st century language learning environment. Staff in the German Department offer additional opportunities to students, including a well-established Exchange with our partner school in Backnang, as well as a number of lunchtime clubs and enrichment projects. 

The German Department is part of the Languages Faculty. This faculty structure provides an excellent support for the Subject, opportunity to share good practice and offers a corporate identity for language learning across the School. 

We welcome applications from teachers in all sectors of education.  

Completed applications to be emailed to:  Mrs Hazel Bates: hbates@cchs.essex.sch.uk 

Closing date for receipt of applications:   Monday 16th September 2019

Interview date: TBA 

The Governing Body is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share in this commitment.  The post is subject to an enhanced DBS Clearance.
