Teacher of French and Spanish job summary

Required for September 2022 a teacher of French and Spanish

Sandhurst School is seeking to appoint an enthusiastic and well-qualified teacher of French and Spanish, to join this dynamic department. This is a permanent position starting either September 2022, or July for a suitably qualified ECT. This role would include teaching French and Spanish to KS3 and potentially KS4. The role would suit both a more experienced teacher or someone new to the profession completing an ECT programme.

In November 2017, Ofsted reported that:

“The Headteacher, leaders and governors are committed to improving pupils’ life chances”

“Pupils’ conduct is typically good and they treat one another with respect”

“Pupils feel safe and are kept safe”

“Pupils are well looked after and are provided with the opportunity to succeed”

“Strong relationships exist between staff and pupils”

We are seeking a highly skilled teacher to teach French and Spanish and help contribute to the continued development of the department. We endeavour to make the subject interesting and accessible for all students, with a wide variety of teaching strategies and techniques used to ensure student engagement and progress. We have a range of resources available to aid in the delivery of the subject; these include subscriptions to online learning platforms such as Languagenut and Kerboodle, chrome books and an extensive range of textbooks. The department has a history of running educational visits to places like the Rhineland, Boulogne and Paris and the Department has an interest in creative enrichment and extracurricular activities, which in the past have included a French cooking club and a Spanish film club.

The successful candidate will show:

● A good understanding of MFL curriculum and teaching practice

● A commitment to raising student achievement

● Motivational and inspirational approaches to teaching & learning

● Good team-working skills

This vacancy offers an exciting opportunity to join a friendly, supportive, forward-thinking department with a reputation for good practice and good examination results.

Located in Sandhurst, bordering Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey, this thriving secondary school is in an ideal location for both local applicants and for those commuting to and from surrounding towns. The school offers on-site parking for drivers and is easily accessible via public transport routes.

Please note: we may hold interviews as and when applications are received, and this job may be withdrawn at any point without notice. With this in mind, you are encouraged to apply as early as possible.

Employment is with Corvus Learning Trust and not Bracknell Forest Council. The trust is very popular and for most posts a large number of applications are received - it is therefore not possible to notify all applicants of the outcome. Please accept that if you have not heard within three weeks of the closing date then, unfortunately, your application has been unsuccessful - in which case we offer our best wishes for the future.
