the chance to further develop and teach an exciting curriculum in KS3 and KS4 as
well as teaching A-level if desired. You will need to be able to teach one
language to KS4 (ability to teach A level would be an advantage) and ideally the
other language to KS3 level. You will be part of a dynamic and growing teaching
team and you will therefore have the chance to significantly shape the
experiences of our students in the subject as they progress through our growing
school. As second in faculty you will have an area of leadership that will be
agreed with you, likely to be leading a key stage, or taking the lead for
French or Spanish.

11 and the Sixth Form. The results of our first three A-level cohorts in summer
2021, 2022 and 2023 were excellent and enabled 98% university applicants to
take up their offers, including three to Oxford and Cambridge; students have
also secured prestigious apprenticeships with companies such as Airbus and

made by the large majority of our first cohort of year 11 students has been
excellent, particularly in English and Maths. This includes students of all

student has a laptop to assist with their learning; students are enthused by
their language lessons and we have an excellent take-up at GCSE Spanish and
French, including many double linguists. The faculty recently underwent a very
successful ‘Deep Dive’ as part of a strong Ofsted inspection.
