What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding and inspirational Subject Leader for Modern Foreign Languages who can lead an experienced and committed subject team in a strong academic environment, where languages are highly valued. The successful candidate will be an experienced and skilled classroom practitioner with a track record of innovation and securing excellent outcomes. We offer both French and German from Years 7 to 13. Our newly appointed Assistant Subject Leader is a German specialist and therefore the ability of our new Subject Leader to teach A-Level French is highly desirable. Also, the ability to teach German to at least Key Stage 3 is essential. We welcome applications from current subject leaders/heads of departments looking for a career move, or from strong candidates seeking to progress to middle leadership. Candidates will be in a position to take up the post in September 2024, with the option of starting earlier, subject to mutual agreement. We can offer an exceptional working environment where staff, as well as students, thrive.
