Alleyn's is one of the country’s leading HMC co-educational independent day schools, committed to achieving educational excellence within an ethos of strong pastoral care and a vibrant co-curriculum.

Located in Dulwich, South London, with a separate IAPS Junior School on the same 30-acre site, the senior school has around 1,000 pupils, including a large and dynamic Sixth Form.

We are seeking to appoint a temporary full-time Teacher of MFL (French and Spanish) for our Advent term.  This post is for one year and could suit either an experienced teacher, someone seeking NQT status (full induction programme in place) or an aspiring teacher wanting to enter the profession (full training and induction programme in place). 

The ideal candidate for the post will be an enthusiastic and well-qualified linguist who has a real love for the subject and an ability to convey this to pupils. The capability to motivate and inspire (both students and teachers) is vital as well as being able to work as part of a strong team. They would demonstrate excellence in the classroom and contribute fully to the co-curricular programme.

The MFL department currently consists of thirteen teachers. There is a Director of Modern Languages, in addition to Heads of French, Spanish and German.  Many members of the department offer two languages up to GCSE or A level. There are also foreign language assistants for Spanish, French and German and we offer clubs in other languages.

Languages are very popular at A Level with many going on to read Modern Languages at top universities.

We have our own competitive salary scale and accommodation may be available.
