Appointment of a Teacher of French for September 2017
Exeter Cathedral School requires a first-rate individual to join the team as a Teacher of French.
Founded in the 12th century as a chorister school, ECS now educates some 250 pupils, including the boy and girl choristers of Exeter Cathedral. The School has a celebrated track record of 13+ scholarships (academic, art, drama, music, sport, all-rounder) to leading senior schools: in 2017, a total of 34 awards were made to the 23-strong Year 8 cohort. The School is located right in the heart of the city and in the lee of the Cathedral, and enjoys a glowing reputation as a school with a family feel. With the arrival of a new Headmaster and a new Director of Curriculum in January 2016; a new Boarding Housemistress in September 2016; a new Director of Sport in January 2017; a new Director of Music in September 2017; and the creation of a number of pastoral and academic middle management posts in the last 12 months, this is an exciting time to be joining Exeter's oldest school.
The successful candidate is likely to be a hard-working and highly-motivated individual who has the energy and vision to be a role model for pupils and staff. The post would suit experienced teachers and NQTs, and it is envisaged that this will be a one year fixed-term post in the first instance.
For further details and an application pack, please contact the School’s Bursar and Head of HR Mrs Sharon Groves: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 21st June. Interviews for shortlisted candidates are likely to take place later that same week or during the week beginning 26th June.
Exeter Cathedral School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all employees to share this commitment. The successful applicant will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
