Gordano School is part of the Lighthouse Schools Partnership (multi-academy trust). We have a reputation for success that is based on excellent teaching and high standards. We are proud to be a comprehensive school and value the success and achievement of every one of our pupils. We are a proud member of the North Somerset Teaching Alliance and were designated as a National Teaching School in September 2013.
In April 2012 Gordano was judged to be Outstanding in all categories in an Ofsted inspection. In 2016 Progress 8 stood at 0.3 and the school was in the top 20% in almost all progress and attainment categories in FFT dashboard.
With effect from 1st September 2017, we are looking for an enthusiastic teacher of French to A-Level and Spanish to at least KS3 (preferably GCSE) to join our high achieving Faculty for a fixed term and part time contract. Most students study a language up to GCSE. This role would suit either an NQT or more experienced teacher.
Please note Gordano School is also advertising for a full time Teacher of French, only one post will be filled after the closing date post interview. For the 2017-18 academic year the need is a part-time one, but this will grow into a full-time need from 2018-19 due to demographic growth and expansion of our languages provision at KS3, with most students experiencing a second language prior to making option choices for GCSE.
The successful candidate will be:
- a strong classroom teacher
- able to enthuse, engage and motivate students
- able to teach across the age and ability range
- the ability to teach Spanish as a second language
