Join us to make a difference in Suffolk.

The Seckford Foundation Free Schools Trust, was established by the Seckford Foundation in 2012 to help local communities in Suffolk set up and run free schools, at the request of those members of the community who wanted to improve aspirations and rates of progress for young people of secondary school age.

With the support of the Department for Education and the Seckford Foundation, the trust opened Beccles and Saxmundham Free Schools in September 2012, and Ixworth Free School in September 2014. All our schools are funded by the government and are non-selective; they are designed to provide an excellent, academically focused education for young people aged eleven to sixteen.

Our vision and ethos is therefore set up to achieve those overarching objectives.

We pride our schools as being a confident and happy place, where our students receive excellent pastoral care and support in a small school setting. Our staff members know each of their students as individuals. As all-inclusive schools, we celebrate the successes of all our students together as a community and we have aspirations that everyone will make progress above the national average.

We are seeking a talented MFL Teacher (specialising in French) to join our language departments at Saxmundham and Beccles Free Schools. MFL is taught from Year 7 through to GCSE; you will primarily be teaching KS3, but will also teach some KS4. You must be committed to raising the standard of our students by creative and engaging teaching.

We provide a happy and supportive work environment, with high expectations of staff and students, together with a competitive salary based on skills and experience.

You will have access to promotion opportunities and superb professional development across all our free schools.

Suffolk is a beautiful county, with access to London for the occasional night out or theatre trip. Very close to the coast, with countryside walks and excellent food and drink.

We reserve the right to appoint prior to the closing date.
