Our staff are our most valued asset. As part of the Tudor Grange Trust, all of our staff have access to a wealth of support provided by outstanding practitioners.

The Role

An outstanding teacher of MFL (German) is required ideally for a September 2018 start, however we will consider January 2019 for the right person, to join a committed and hard-working department. 

The Faculty

We are a supportive team who fully believe in languages as an essential part of the curriculum and currently offer French, German and Spanish at KS3, 4 and 5. We follow the AQA board for both GCSE and A level.

We are committed to the development of language learning and raising attainment at all key stages. We encourage our students to aim high, and we are looking for an individual who is able to motivate and inspire students, maintain good classroom discipline and play an active role in the development of the teaching and learning within the faculty. We enjoy well-equipped rooms with touch screen TVs and have our own MFL computer suite. 

Our GCSE results in MFL have been strong and improving in 2017:

86%  A* to C in French 

73.3% A* to C in German

70%  A* to C in Spanish

The Academy

The Robert Smyth Academy developed from Market Harborough’s oldest school and was founded in 1607. It is now a vibrant, fast growing 11 – 19 Academy with nearly a thousand students, including ‘new’ Year 7 students in 2016 and well over 400 students in the sixth form. The area around Market Harborough, which is an attractive and a growing market town, is increasing in its diversity and offering significant potential for the Academy to grow. 

In 2016 and 2017 the Academy’s Key Stage 4 and 5 results were very pleasing and underpin the progress that has been made. The OfSTED inspection in September 2017 deemed the Academy as ‘good’. This, together with other progress being made, is the foundation of the Academy’s journey to being ‘outstanding’. The Academy also enjoys a very positive reputation in its community and particularly for its considerable extra-curricular offer in many areas, most notably in art, music and sport.

If you join us, you will benefit from:

  • Teaching pupils who are well motivated as the school enjoys strong parental support
  • Working in a Trust with structured professional development opportunities
  • A real chance to develop in a forward thinking, highly successful academy
  • Developing yourself in our ‘can do’ culture and positive ‘want to’ climate

Staff Wellbeing

We actively place staff wellbeing at the centre of everything we do.  Our staff are our single biggest asset, and the success of our students depends on them.  So we take care of and invest in them properly.

A few of the things we offer are:

  • A comprehensive CPD programme for all staff whether they are NQT, RQT or aspiring leaders.
