Head of Modern Foreign Languages

Wren Academy FinchleyBarnet

Due to the internal promotion of the current post holder, the opportunity has arisen, to lead a talented, highly motivated and supportive team of teachers who have contributed to securing the Academy’s outstanding OFSTED status, exceptional examination success and a thriving sixth form.

Located in the London Borough of Barnet, Wren Academy is sponsored by the Church of England and Berkhamsted School. The Academy has developed a strong reputation for outstanding teaching and learning, as demonstrated by our Progress 8 figure, which places us in the top 100 schools nationally. We are an all-through school with an established Sixth Form and a primary which opened in 2015. The engaging curriculum, and state of the art buildings have contributed to the Academy’s notable success.

The Academy is a forward-thinking establishment and welcomes colleagues who are enthusiastic and ready to help create powerful and effective learning experiences for all students. The Modern Foreign Languages department is a thriving part of the Wren community and offers French and Spanish to A level. The curriculum is innovative and focused on developing students’ lifelong love of languages, as well as achieving outstanding examination success.

Wren is a MAT and plans are well advanced to build new schools which will provide exciting professional development opportunities for the successful candidate.

  • Outstanding teaching and interpersonal skills.
  • A strong MFL background with ability to teach French subject to GCSE and A Level essential.
  • Evidence of ambition and a commitment to continuing professional development.
