What skills and experience we're looking for

We are now seeking to appoint an enthusiastic, creative and inspirational teacher to join our successful team to share their love of modern foreign languages with our pupils. You will be able to teach French and Spanish at KS3 with at least one to GCSE. The ability to teach German would be an advantage, but is not essential. The post is available from September 2023 but we will consider a later start for an exceptional candidate.

Many pupils at the College choose to study languages at GCSE, despite it being optional, because of the enjoyable and positive experience they have of the subject; the department is also renowned for the opportunities available to pupils for residential trips abroad. The MFL team is characterised by its supportive and friendly ethos.

This post will provide the successful applicant with a wealth of opportunity to develop their classroom practice and career. Applications are welcomed from Early Career Teachers, as well as those with more experience looking for their next position in a department and school with aspirations for excellence for all.

Sawston Village College is an inclusive, comprehensive 11-16 academy, set on a picturesque open campus, a few miles south of the culturally iconic and aspirational city of Cambridge. It was the first purpose-built Village College in England and we are proud of the fact that it is still heralded as a model for community education and remains true to Henry Morris’ founding principles. Many members of the local community visit each week to participate in learning, sporting or leisure activities. We are also proud to be a founding member of the Anglian Learning Trust, a family of like-minded schools serving over 5500 pupils from ages 3-19 in this region. The Trust affords us opportunities to learn from each other, prosper from outstanding leadership development and build strong professional networks to achieve ambitious objectives.

We are a very welcoming and highly successful school, one in which all staff are valued and all contribute to our strong caring ethos. The College is listed in the top ten state secondary schools without a sixth form in the UK (The Sunday Times, 2023). Pupils are at the centre of all that we do but we can only succeed when all professionals work together, collaboratively and supportively, to ensure a positive, safe and calm learning environment in which all pupils can thrive. We ensure our staff have the resources, development and opportunities to fulfil their roles and responsibilities. Staff wellbeing is vital to our success and we consider workload and the working environment very carefully.
