Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages

St John Fisher Catholic Voluntary AcademyKirklees

Part-Time (0.6) or Full time Considered

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a passionate and inspirational Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages to join our Academy from September 2021.

Our MFL department is regarded as one of the most progressive and improving in our Academy and this presents a wonderful opportunity for aspirant and innovative candidates to help us develop further. The ability to deliver Spanish to KS3 and KS4 is essential and desirable at KS5. 

You will receive access to a quality CPD programme that will transform learning at our school. Over the coming months, St John Fisher will be a breeding ground of innovation, and we will create numerous opportunities for self and career development for our teachers.

We are an over-subscribed Catholic 11-19 mixed school with nearly 1100 students on roll (approximately 170 in the Sixth Form). The department delivers a range of GCSE and A Level courses, and so the successful candidate will have the opportunity of teaching across Key Stages 3, 4 and 5.

The school was founded to help parents to provide a Catholic education for their children, and this remains our founding principle. We are committed to showing Christian care and concern for all staff, students and parents.

St John Fisher is going through an exciting period of transition and change under the guidance of a new Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team. We are creating opportunities for staff to be involved in a range of national teaching projects that will have a clear impact on teaching and learning and student progress in school. 

You are warmly invited and encouraged to visit our school to meet other members of the faculty and see for yourself what a great place St John Fisher is to work.

St John Fisher is a nurturing and caring Christian community that provides fantastic career development opportunities. We look forward to hearing from candidates that are motivated by this vision and want to join a school that encourages students at every turn to fulfil their potential.

Application forms and further details forms are available from the school website and should be returned to recruitment@stjohnfisher.org.uk by 9.00 am on Monday 19th April 2021.
