Job description

MPS/UPS (Recruitment and retention of up to £4000 and a relocation package of up to £8000 may be available for the right candidate).

‘Typical of virtually all lessons are the strong and respectful relationships between staff and pupils. Pupils come to class ready to learn’ Ofsted 2017.

Eskdale School is a successful, popular and growing 11-16 community school situated in Whitby on the North Yorkshire Coast. As a school, we have low staff turnover and high staff retention and our colleagues (and hopefully yours) travel from areas such as Redcar, Guisborough, and Ryedale, as well as from Scarborough and Filey.

We thrive being a smaller than average school (500 on roll) which means as a colleague you will really get to know our students and our wider community family who all subscribe to our ethos of ‘ A place of belonging – a place of inspiration’.

We put huge emphasis on professional development, most of it in-house, and are proud of the high number of good and outstanding teachers who work in our school. We are also noted for our ‘can do’ attitude. We are always keen to encourage new and/or established staff make their mark as soon as they are ready.

We are:
• A ‘Good’ school in every area by Ofsted in 2017.
• A school who works collaboratively with our fellow federated Whitby school - Caedmon College.
• A school where British values are at the heart of our curriculum – so that all our students leave school knowing how to conduct themselves in the wider world.

Employee benefits

In what we believe to be an outstanding opportunity we are looking to appoint a Teacher of MFL to join our successful Humanities Faculty.

We currently offer French up to KS4 and so the successful candidate must be able to teach a Year 10 and a Year 11 class through the rigours and requirements of GCSEs.

We also welcome applications from professionals who might have experience of teaching another language, so that we can develop the provision of languages at Key Stage 3, and possibly KS4 in future.

• Ability to teach French to GCSE (required)
• Additional language that can be used to help develop the provision of languages at Eskdale School (considered)

As a new teacher, we will invest in your future development as a teaching professional through our ‘Teaching Programme’. We are looking for someone who can grow and further develop into being a highly effective teacher, as well as someone who has the drive and ambition to make sure our students achieve their very best.
Join our team and build a wonderful career in a school you are passionate about with students you love to help learn.
