Recherché!  ịSe busca!  Wanted!

We are looking for an innovative and engaging Modern Languages teacher to lead our committed team. This is an exciting time to join us as we develop intercultural understanding through language learning both in the classroom and as a part of wider school life.

You will be a dynamic and confident practitioner, with the ability to bring learning to life and inspire a love of languages across all Key Stages. Currently we offer French but there is scope for the successful candidate to diversify provision. 

This is a school where language learning is highly valued and very well supported by SLT, teaching and support staff. We are well-resourced; results at GCSE have improved rapidly and our students are keen to learn and progress. We run a variety of trips and have links with a partner school in Boulogne.

Our ideal candidate will:

• be a passionate teacher of MFL and a committed team player;

• demonstrate high levels of ambition and optimism towards student attainment and achievement;

• demonstrate evidence of raising attainment and developing excellence;

• have the resolve and enthusiasm to make a real difference to the lives of students.

Ofsted – ‘Teachers have high expectations of their pupils and expect all pupils to give of their best.’
