The Oaks Academy
Humanities and MFL Faculty
The school, as a whole, has seen many changes over the past 18 months and since becoming an Academy in January 2016, work has focussed on ensuring that all staff deliver high quality teaching and learning, every lesson, every day! The Humanities and MFL Faculty was created twelve months ago and has the following subject areas within it:
A review of the KS4 Curriculum took place during 2016 -2017. As a result 47% of the current Year 10 cohort would be eligible to gain the EBacc at the end of Year 11. These changes to the curriculum offer have meant that increased numbers of students are taking either French or German at GCSE. This appointment is crucial in further developing the capacity of the current team.
The faculty consists of six members of staff (two of which are on the senior leadership team) who are enthusiastic, motivated and work as a close team towards shared goals. All members of staff have their own classroom equipped with an interactive white board.
The schools’ philosophy is to ensure that all pupils are challenged through an exciting and enriching curriculum to achieve their full potential. All staff are encouraged to develop engaging and stimulating schemes of work that match the learners needs. There has been a lot of work carried out recently overhauling existing schemes of work at KS3, to ensure that students are fully prepared for the challenges of GCSE.
It is essential that the successful applicant be able to teach Modern Foreign Languages up to and including KS4. We currently teach both French and German. Students in Years 10 and 11 currently follow the AQA GCSE Specification.
