Head of MFL

Required for September 2018


Portslade Aldridge Community Academy (PACA) are seeking an exceptional teacher of MFL with a passion for igniting a life-long love of languages, to lead our MFL department and inspire students in the classroom.

You will be an inspirational practitioner with great curriculum knowledge and a proven track record of success.  You need to be a strong team player, resilient with a passion to ensure the best life chances for all students. We currently offer French and Spanish, so the ability to teach one of these languages to KS5 will be essential. 

PACA was judged ‘good’ by Ofsted in November 2016 and is categorised ‘above average’ in terms of the progress students make. Our results have been consistently improving for over three years and our Progress 8 score (0.3) is now the second highest in the city. Recognised as Brighton’s Most Improved School in the local media in 2017, our KS3 student intake grew over 80% year on year in 2017, and is set for further significant growth in 2018.

Our motto is ‘Unlocking Potential’ and we are committed to unlocking the full potential in our students and staff. With our wonderful new buildings and facilities, an educational transformation is underway.  There has been significant development of the Academy site over recent years with £12.7million being invested in an impressive new state of the art building and fantastic new facilities such as a dance studio, Mac suite, community library, superb sixth form and a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and mathematics) Centre with excellent laboratories. 

Further details and an application pack are available from our partnership recruiter Hays Education. Please contact Richard Lanning on 01273 729465 or richard.lanning@hays.com

Informal discussions and visits to the academy are actively encouraged.
