What skills and experience we're looking for

We would like to appoint a committed, energetic and enthusiastic teacher who teaches and specialises in French, to GCSE level (and KS3 Spanish) to join the MFL Department in January 2024. This post is a great opportunity for an outstanding experienced teacher looking for a new challenge.

French is delivered by a team of teachers in dedicated rooms each with its own interactive TV. The department is well resourced and popular with a growing number of students choosing to study a language to GCSE level increasing year on year.

We are committed to developing autonomous learners, with an enthusiasm to communicate and an awareness of other cultures. We provide a wide variety of differentiated resources with a strong IT focus within a flexible and supportive learning environment. We run a strong extra-curricular offer that we are keen to expand further.

It is expected that the successful candidate will have the drive to inspire students to achieve the best possible results and be good communicators, able to interact effectively and restoratively with a wide and diverse group of people. Applicants should demonstrate a well thought out philosophy of education which reflects the needs of all learners and to play a full part in the life of the school community, to support its distinctive mission and strong inclusive ethos and to encourage and ensure staff and students follow this example.
