Teacher of French
Required for January 2022
MPS/UPS + London Fringe Allowance
The MFL department is home to a lively and mutually supportive team, which offers French and German to A-Level.
The successful applicant would ideally teach French to A-Level, with the ability to teach German an advantage.
It is a well-resourced department with a strong emphasis on staff development and the appointed candidate can expect to gain significant enjoyment and professional fulfilment from working here. We are seeking to appoint a well-qualified graduate with the ability to contribute to this committed team. There is a full programme of exchanges and visits with schools in France and Germany. Latin is also currently delivered to GCSE.
We were graded Outstanding in every category by Ofsted in March 2017.
Educating approximately 1200 students, The Bishop’s Stortford High School provides a single-sex education for boys in Years 7 to 11 and has a large, thriving co-educational sixth form, with over one hundred girls on roll. In 2019, 89% of our GCSE students achieved grade 4+ in both English and Maths, contributing to a Progress 8 score of +0.16, compared to a national average for boys of -0.28. At A-Level we had a 55% A* - B pass rate in 2019, 61% in 2020 and 66% in 2021. We have a strong ethos, based on high expectations and standards for all, a committed and supportive staff who deliver high quality, engaging lessons and well-behaved students with excellent attitudes to learning.
We are due to re-locate to a brand new ‘state of the art’ school on a new site less than half a mile from our current location, in January 2023. This exciting project will provide us with a fantastic new learning environment, supported by cutting edge technology, and huge opportunities for the future.
The school provides a supportive environment in which both newly qualified and experienced teachers have excellent opportunities to develop their careers. A formidable range of extra-curricular activities are available to students which include numerous overseas trips, languages exchanges, cultural visits, first class fixture cards in all major sports, a diverse and high quality music and drama programme, DofE, Model UN conference, Young Enterprise, debating, public speaking and much more. The school places a strong emphasis on staff development and the appointed candidate can expect to gain significant enjoyment and professional fulfilment from working here.
An application form and further details are immediately available from the Headteacher’s PA, Mrs D Landers, at the school or downloadable from the website www.tbshs.org
