We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, well qualified and ambitious Teacher of Spanish and to work in this inspiring school. The MFL Department has a very strong reputation with excellent exam results at Common Entrance and Scholarship level. The Teacher of Spanish will be expected to work closely with the Head of MFL and present a positive and proactive role model for pupils. 

Swanbourne House School is a highly successful co-educational boarding and day prep school of 320 pupils, aged 3 to 13, based in the beautiful Buckinghamshire countryside. An ISI outstanding school, Swanbourne combines excellent teaching, modern facilities and countless opportunities for pupils to grow in confidence and discover their talents. Swanbourne House is committed to providing the very highest standard of pastoral care and teaching and learning to ensure that every child is well looked after, happy and fulfilled.


In September 2019 we will be launching an enhanced languages curriculum. This coincides with our move away from the traditional Common Entrance examinations as our main assessment framework towards a diverse and relevant curriculum designed for pupils working towards success at GCSE and beyond. 

We are therefore, keen to introduce Spanish into our curriculum, as an additional subject. Spanish is currently taught by a peripatetic teacher for pupils who request individual lessons.    

The role requires you to demonstrate an expertise in your subject, teaching Spanish from Reception up to and including Year 6. However, it is envisaged that this will grow to the teaching of Years 7 and 8 and possibly 13+ scholarship level. 

There are currently two full time teachers in the MFL department.  

We are looking to appoint an outstanding yet flexible and adaptable teacher who enjoys working with children, seeing them thrive and preparing them academically and holistically for the next stage in their education and life journey. This position would suit an experienced Teacher or an NQT. 

What we offer: 

  • Homemade, Freshly cooked meals provided
