Job summary

MFL Teacher – to start September 2020

Closing date: 12 noon on Wednesday 29th January 2020

Interview date: Wednesday 5th February 2020

Ada Lovelace Church of England High School, one of four schools in the Twyford CE Academies Trust, is a new seven-form-entry secondary school for pupils aged 11-18 in Ealing, West London. As a new school within a highly aspirational and academically successful multi-academy Trust Ada Lovelace offers exciting development opportunities and good promotion prospects for talented and energetic teachers who support the ethos of our schools. The school offers comprehensive T&L and CPD opportunities for all teachers.

The Trust is particularly committed to achieving high standards in the teaching of Modern Foreign Languages and achieves outstanding outcomes and a very high entry rate in this subject area.

The school, now in its second year, is currently co-located at William Perkin CE High School (Ofsted ‘Outstanding’), and moves to its brand new permanent site in north Ealing in September 2020.

This is an exciting role for an enthusiastic teacher as we prepare our students for GCSE and beyond (the school’s first GCSEs will be in 2023). Our oldest Year group will start Year 9 in September 2020 so this post is ideally suited to a teacher who is passionate about curriculum design and development, especially at KS4. The post-holder will be joining an innovative, ambitious and energetic staff group that seeks to deliver an outstanding curriculum, and will be well supported by an experienced Senior Leadership Team. Joint working between the Trust schools ensures that there is a very strong programme of European trips and extracurricular activities, making languages high profile within the school community. Ada Lovelace is unusual in offering French and German as core offers and particularly welcomes applicants from teachers with both languages. Training on the teaching of modern foreign languages is a strength within the CPD.

This role is suitable for NQT and RQT applicants.
