Student achievement and well-being is at the heart of everything we do at Whickham School. We combine outstanding teaching with a rewarding, enriching curriculum which broadens students’ horizons and encourages them to believe in their abilities.

We require, for a September 2020 start, an enthusiastic and highly committed teacher or NQT who will make a significant contribution to continuous improvement within the MFL Faculty.  You should be able to teach French or German to KS4 and the other to KS3.  

This is an excellent opportunity to join our over-subscribed 11 – 18 school with a vibrant, forward thinking philosophy and a positive, friendly atmosphere. We can offer an exciting opportunity to make a real impact. Experience in relation to years taught in a secondary school is not important; if you are a strong teacher, we want to hear from you.  Although this is a fixed term role, full support would be given to an NQT who wishes to go through their induction year.

We offer:

• A school that will allow you to be inspirational, creative and play an active role in our journey to become outstanding

• Professional development programmes, with a commitment to support your career ambition

• An excellent NQT programme

• An academy which welcomes new ideas with energy and enthusiasm

• Students that are well behaved and want to learn.

Whickham School is a large and successful school in Gateshead with over 1500 students including approximately 250 in the sixth form, which is one of the most successful in the region. MFL results are strong, with around 65% of all pupils studying either French or German at GCSE. The percentage achieving grade 4+ in languages (89%) was in the highest 20% of all schools in 2019.

If you think you have the passion, energy and drive to help us become even better, please apply. Informal visits are welcome and encouraged.
