A rare opportunity to join a committed staff team with excellent career development opportunities, freedom to be inspirational and make a difference. If you want a teaching job with a positive challenge in a small independent school where pupils are valued as individuals and inspired to learn, we want to hear from you!

We are looking for a committed individual with a passion for languages. The successful applicant will teach French across KS3 and KS4 with the possibility of teaching KS5 in due course.

Pupils are prepared for the AQA GCSE examination. Pupils participate in co-curricular opportunities and there is scope for the successful applicant to create further imaginative co-curricular opportunities for our pupils.

Thames is a thriving mainstream school with a two stream entry founded in 2000 for pupils aged 11-16. Its close proximity to Clapham Junction station means that pupils come from a wide catchment area. The school is working with Wandsworth Council and Taylor Wimpey on plans to relocate to a brand new purpose-built premises in the academic year 2020/2021. This will expand the school to a three stream entry with a sixth form and provide excellent career opportunities.

Applications are welcome from passionate teachers wanting to make a difference in a very different setting both early or later in their careers. Thames has an excellent CPD programme and a strong track record of mentoring NQTs.

The role:

  • Teaching French across Key Stage 3 and 4
  • Working from existing schemes of learning and also creating new, well-differentiated schemes of learning and resources
  • Preparing pupils for AQA GCSE

  • Have a commitment to embracing challenges and raising pupil attainment
