The school is seeking to employ a well-qualified and enthusiastic individual to join our successful Languages department. All pupils study French or Spanish at KS3 with large numbers continuing into KS4/KS5. The Department has a consistent record of excellent results with both Attainment and Progress in Languages.
The MFL Department at Wimbledon College promotes the importance of learning and speaking foreign languages in the modern world. However, we do not only teach the skills and the linguistic knowledge necessary to acquire a foreign language, but also the cultural and social background that surrounds and influences the language.
We teach from a communicative approach and use the target language in the classroom as much as possible. More importantly, we encourage students to use the target language in real situations. It is only in this way that we believe they can acquire a good knowledge of the language and use it for real communicative purposes.
The department is formed by six enthusiastic, very dedicated and hardworking people who, together, ensure that all pupils achieve their full potential. We also try to provide a great atmosphere of support and comradeship among us.
