MFL Hub Leader (Head of MFL) job summary

We are looking for an exceptional candidate, to join us as a the 'Hub Leader for Modern Foreign Languages' . The core business of a subject hub leader is the core business of the schoolto further improve the quality of teaching and learning so that, over time, it is increasingly good and outstanding for all students..

The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic and creative educator with the versatility and expertise to deliver French across KS3, KS4, and ideally KS5.

The King’s Academy is a fantastic place to work if you want to make a positive impact on students’ life chances. We focus not only on student wellbeing but also staff wellbeing. We are clear that in order to serve our students well, staff need to feel valued and supported and to focus their time and energies on what they do best – teach! To that end we have ensured that, over time, we have minimised the impact of bureaucracy on a teacher’s working day; we have moved from performance management to a professional growth model where the key difference is working with staff to help them improve their classroom practice rather than ‘doing to’ staff; we collect only essential data in order to understand student progress; we have a calm and orderly school because we have a simple and clearly understood approach to ensuring high standards of behaviour; we consult regularly with staff on any changes that will impact on their workload and we invest heavily in the professional development of colleagues. We also take care of some of the more practical benefits such as our electric car salary sacrifice scheme, discounted gym membership, and our car valeting service. The collective end result of these measures, and more, is a community of teachers who remain bright eyed in the classroom and who want to stay working at The King’s.

You will undoubtedly remember a teacher who inspired you, who made you enjoy their subject and you look back on that teacher with positive thoughts and memories. Our mission is to deliver ‘learning experiences that last a lifetime’ and we ask that teachers who work at The King’s endeavour, each and every day, to be that memorable teacher for our students.

So, if you are an energetic and enthusiastic practitioner who is innovative, can work on your own initiative and lead by example, with a passion to see students make ‘outstanding steps of progress’, then we would love to hear from you.

We strongly encourage all candidates to take the opportunity of visiting the academy prior to submitting an application. To arrange a visit, or for further information, please in the first instance, contact Miss K Revill, PA to the Principal on 01782 783281. This position is not suitable for ECTs (Early Career Teachers).

As a Church of England school with a strong Christian ethos, the Governors particularly welcome applications from candidates who are practising Christians.

We will review applications upon receipt. Suitable candidates may be interviewed before the closing date and we reserve the right to withdraw the position if an early appointment is made.

Our academy is a superb place to grow, to learn, to work and to flourish. As a relatively new academy (we opened in January 2016 and moved into our superb new build in November 2016), we are keen to retain our place as ‘the school of choice in Kidsgrove’.



Our motto ‘Learning with truth and love’ epitomises the values towards which our governors, our staff and our students strive to embody. Students are consistently inspired and encouraged to become everything that God has created them to be, through a wide ranging and inclusive curriculum and a wealth of exciting enrichment opportunities. We work hard to create a vibrant, mutually supportive climate for learning in which everyone can thrive.



Staff lead by example and are passionate about encouraging, inspiring, challenging and stretching every individual in their care, so that they can achieve at the highest levels. We do our utmost to maximise the attainment of each student, placing great emphasis on individual character development and personal growth.



We are an inclusive school with students of all abilities and social backgrounds. For those students with individual learning and physical needs, we have an extensive inclusion team. Our staff make every effort to get to know each student as an individual.



Our well embedded ‘Behaviour for Learning’ policy is designed to encourage positive attitudes to lessons and to ensure students’ behaviour underpins their learning. A recent external assessment describes behaviour in lessons as 'exemplary'.



Our mission is to enable students to leave The King's with outstanding results and life changing experiences, equipped to be responsible and caring citizens ready to make their mark on the world in which they live.

Staff turnover at The King’s is really low: people want to stay and work here. The academy is a community of its own. Colleagues join us from the local area and from further afield - it is a place where professionals want to work.
