Teacher of French and Spanish

Lord Wandsworth CollegeHampshire

Lord Wandsworth College seeks to appoint a Teacher of Spanish and French for a fixed-term contract, starting at the beginning of the summer term 2022 for one year.

Applications are invited from experienced and enthusiastic candidates with an excellent degree in a directly relevant subject to teach throughout the College (Years 7 to 12) and to join this thriving and dynamic department. Formal teaching qualifications are not essential; however, proven teaching experience would be a distinct advantage. NQTs are also welcome to apply.

This is a full-time post, and the successful applicant will be expected to contribute fully to the co-curricular and pastoral life of the boarding school.

The College offers a competitive salary scale and package.

Benefits: Accommodation may be available within the school grounds. There is a broad range of further staff benefits (including contributory pension scheme, fee remission for children, lunch, use of wide-ranging school facilities: swimming pool, tennis, walks, etc.).

Situated on a magnificent 1,200-acre campus of rolling countryside, woodland and a working arable farm, Lord Wandsworth College (LWC) provides an inspiring education to approximately 660 boarding and day pupils aged 11–18.

LWC is thriving under the leadership of Adam Williams, who became Headmaster in 2015. Its increasing popularity has been reflected in rising pupil numbers, and a transformational vision for education has led to major investment in the campus and facilities. The latest, and most significant, of these capital projects is an £8million state-of- the-art Science Centre, due to open early in 2022.

This is a dynamic and highly successful school on a clear upward trajectory with significant investment in staff professional development, too. Furthermore, the College has won three national awards for Wellbeing and Mental Health Initiatives in as many years and continues to celebrate record academic achievement and a range of sporting honours at county level.
