We are seeking an inspirational and enthusiastic teacher to join our friendly department and support the expansion of language teaching across this growing school.
The successful candidate will be able to teach French and Spanish to years 7 – 11, and one of the languages through to A level. Within the languages department, students study French, Mandarin and Latin in years 7 and 8. In year 9 they are also offered the opportunity to start Spanish. At GCSE all students study at least one modern foreign language and an increasing number of students then opt to study languages in the sixth form.
The languages team are led by a head of faculty who oversees languages and English within the school.
The post is suitable for a skilled and experienced languages teacher, or for an ambitious person who is relatively new to teaching and who can see potential in making their mark on this new school. Newly qualified teachers are supported through their induction period in collaboration with ISTIP.
There are also opportunities to contribute to the extra-curricular life of the school and we enjoy partnerships with facilities right on our doorstep, including sport in Hyde Park, swimming and fitness at the Porchester Centre and even ice-skating at Queen’s ice rink!
Teachers will be offered a great deal of support alongside many opportunities to share resources and good practice.
Kensington Park School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employer and the Disclosure and Barring Service, as well as have due regard for the school's Safer Recruitment and Safeguarding (Child Protection) policies when applying for any position at the school.
