This represents an outstanding opportunity to make an impact in a successful, forward-thinking school in the market town of Dereham. We take pride in both the welcome we offer the whole community and the standards achieved by our young people. In our recent Ofsted report (May 2023) Northgate High School and Dereham Sixth Form College was graded a ‘Good’ school in all areas.

We are seeking to appoint a committed and enthusiastic teacher to join our highly successful Modern Foreign Languages Department. The Modern Foreign Languages Department is a supportive and welcoming department with a huge amount of experience. Their strengths are their ability to communicate their passion for the subjects and build positive and productive relationships with pupils.

You will be joining a school where staff share best practice so that our standard of teaching and support is both high quality and continually developing.

The post is suitable for both Early Career Teachers (September start) and experienced teachers (September or earlier). The ability to teach Spanish is desirable but not essential.

The successful candidate will be:

someone who is a highly motivated and inspiring classroom practitioner;

someone with vision, energy and a real passion for languages;

able to teach French to Year 7 to Year 11 and the possibility of teaching A Level;

able to enthuse students of all ages and abilities.

In return for the right candidate we are offering:

a competitive salary in line with MPS and UPR scales;

all the advantages of a successful academy group;

being part of an extended network of teachers and leaders who share and exchange ideas and continued professional development opportunities;

support from creative and innovative colleagues that will ensure your professional practice continues to develop;

a stimulating and friendly working environment where every member of staff is valued and makes a significant contribution to the school/college;

training and development opportunities;

opportunity of additional paid duties;

the opportunity for the exploration of educational practice through Masters and Doctoral degrees as well as funded research projects as part of Laboratory School accreditation.

contributory pension scheme;

private Health Care Plan;

access to high-quality musculoskeletal physiotherapy provision;

access to our Employee Assistance helpline for free and confidential advice;

We are proud to be the only University accredited laboratory school in Norfolk. As a Laboratory School we are committed to research-based practice which is strengthened through peer-to-peer learning, ongoing professional development and collaboration with other schools and partners.

Whilst there are accredited schools all over the world, we were the first in Norfolk to be selected. We were approached to be part of University of Bolton’s Lab School network because of our Good OFSTED rating, our strong exam results, our ethos and our record of researched-based pedagogy.

If you feel you have the right experience, skills and enthusiasm, and would like to join our highly committed team, then we would very much like to hear from you.

Closing date for applications is Monday 26th February at 9.00am
