In the next two years, as the academy continues to grow, we will have over 2,500 students, including 500 in the 6th form. 

We are looking for a Teacher of Spanish. Modern Foreign Languages are very popular subjects at Harris Academy South Norwood, particularly at GCSE. Students study two languages at KS3 and this post is ideally for a colleague who is also fluent in French.

  • Ensure we have the highest standards for the quality of teaching, behaviour and pastoral care.
  • Be a form tutor to a tutor group.
  • Be a literacy ambassador to lead the improvement of reading, writing and oracy across the learning hubs – everyone is a teacher of literacy.

Why work at Harris Academy South Norwood?
