Wilmington Grammar School for Girls is an 11-18 year old selective Girls’ Grammar School, with a co-educational sixth form, run jointly with Wilmington Grammar School for Boys. The school was judged ‘outstanding’ in November 2015 and is popular and oversubscribed.
We are looking to appoint an outstanding teacher of Mandarin from September 2018. The school is part of the Mandarin Excellence Programme. All year 7 students study two languages, Mandarin and French. In year 8, they choose whether to continue Mandarin or start a second European language. All students must continue with at least one language to GCSE level.
A select group of students follow the accelerated Mandarin Excellence Programme, led by UCL IOE Confucius Institute for Schools in Partnership with the British Council. This group has access to a wide range of enrichment opportunities and is expected to achieve at GCSE level within three years.
We seek someone who will:
• be an inspirational teacher with a proven track record of delivering high quality lessons with excellent student outcomes
• have the vision and initiative to take a project in its early stages and move it forward ensuring its continual growth
• be committed to raising standards for all students
• be forward thinking and pro-active in identifying key trends and responding to the inherent changes required in the delivery of this subject area
As joint lead of NWK Teaching School Alliance, the development of outstanding teachers and the opportunity for staff progression is considered a priority.
