We are looking to appoint a Head of Modern Foreign Languages to lead our MFL department. This is a fantastic opportunity to develop the growing MFL department to continue its success into the fifth year and to get it ready for the start of the GCSE and A Level courses in 2018.

Students at Hackney New School make on average one whole level of progress each year. This is down to our focus on a mastery curriculum, mixed ability teaching at KS3, innovative use of technology and an extended day so that we can offer tailored intervention to those who need it. Students are given the opportunity to follow both French and Spanish at KS3.

Hackney New School is an exciting, oversubscribed secondary school, which opened in September 2013. Our core vision is to provide students with access to the widest range of opportunities in life by fostering academic excellence and instilling self-belief, intellectual curiosity and responsibility towards others in society. All at HNS share the belief that an outstanding education can be provided to children from a wide range of backgrounds, if they are being challenged in all aspects of their academic and personal development. Our successful Ofsted inspection, after only 5 terms, is testament to our current success. We now need additional outstanding leaders to continue to develop our school. In September 2015 we moved into our exciting new purpose built buildings on the Kingsland canal basin.

Hackney New School will inevitably undergo rapid growth and development as additional year groups are recruited. This will lead to subsequent changes and development of all job descriptions as additional staff are employed, providing exciting additional areas of responsibility and potential senior leadership posts.

We Offer:

  • Fantastic pupils with enormous potential
  • 2 hour unrivalled in-house CPR per week and free counselling support
  • Our staff members have access to free breakfast and lunches at the school
  • A Cycle to Work scheme and travel card loans for staff
  • Attendance and punctuality bonuses
