  • Innovate and develop an inclusive, inspiring and enriching MFL curriculum
  • Develop and maintain a rigorous system of monitoring, evaluating and improving the quality of teaching and learning and student outcomes across the curriculum
  • Inspire more students to continue studying a modern foreign language at GCSE level.

As the successful applicant, you will have:

  • Evidence of successful MFL teaching at KS3 and KS4 Please note that our preference is for a Spanish specialist who can also teach French to at least KS3, but we will consider a suitably qualified French specialist with KS3 Spanish and a willingness to develop their KS4 Spanish.
  • An ability to develop and sustain successful relationships with pupils and colleagues
  • Recent, relevant professional leadership development

Please note that wherever possible, we always seek to ensure that full-time teaching staff have their own allocated classroom.
