To cover maternity leave from September 2024

We are keen to recruit a full time teacher of MFL to a temporary post to cover a period of maternity leave from September 2024.

At Castle Newnham School, we value the teaching of languages. We believe the study of languages broadens pupils’ horizons and opens doors to opportunity hence all pupils at Castle Newnham School study a foreign language to GCSE level. Our MFL department has an excellent reputation for high standards and innovative teaching and is led by a passionate and experienced subject specialist. We seek a teacher who will enthuse pupils to learn with a combination of great subject knowledge, energy, dedication and warmth of approach. We are forward looking in that we embrace innovation and research-based practice with a strong emphasis on training and development and would welcome applications from colleagues with a similarly outward-looking approach. The role will involve working collaboratively and enthusiastically as part of the extremely supportive team. The post is suitable for ambitious colleagues at any stage of their career including ECT.

As well as a supportive team and strong professional development, Castle Newnham offers:

  • well-behaved, happy, confident and enthusiastic pupils who are keen to learn;

  • a school highly valued and supported by parents and the community;

  • a nurturing, enthusiastic and committed staff, who can rise to a challenge;

  • great opportunities to make your mark and to be part of something exciting and unique
