Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages

Part time 0.6

September 2024

This is an exciting opportunity to join a thriving, well established and successful Modern Foreign Languages Department in which French and German are taught by committed subject specialists. Examination results are impressive with 60% of the cohort last year in GCSE French achieving a Grade 9. The numbers of students opting to study a language at GCSE and A Level is increasing. There are a variety of opportunities for our young people to engage in extra curricular opportunities including our Year 7 whole year group residential trip to France which goes in the summer term.

The successful candidate will be joining the school at an exciting time as we are on the DFE School Rebuilding Programme, which means that we will move into a brand new school building, located on the existing site in 2026.

The closing date for receipt of applications is Thursday 16th May 2024 however, we reserve the right to close a vacancy earlier than the advertised date if we receive applications that meet the criteria. Once a vacancy has closed, we are unable to consider further applications, so please submit your application as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Interviews will take place on Wednesday 22nd June 2024.


Gosford Hill School is situated in Kidlington, on the north western edge of Oxford near to the new Oxford Parkway Station (a 50 minute journey from London). We are also fortunate to be at the gateway to the rural Cotswolds. Our school is part of the River Learning Trust; our collective vision is to be a Trust where pupils and staff thrive in schools which demonstrate:

  • all-round education, academic success, lifelong learning and strength of character

  • sustainable continuous improvement; no school standing still

  • all schools being good and outstanding, or improving rapidly

  • collaboration that is raising standards, and reducing workload

  • where pupils, staff, parents and communities value all we do to support the best possible outcomes and experiences for our children and young people


Education has the power to change lives, communities and society for the better. At RLT we believe that we can achieve more for our pupils, trainees, staff and communities by working together rather than alone. Schools in RLT are united by a common belief in the benefits of working together, and by our commitment to shared principles.

OUR VISION is for our schools and SCITT to improve rapidly, continuously and sustainably: to be better faster together.

OUR ‘WHY?’ is that children and young people ‘only get one go’ in school and therefore as part of RLT we aim to ensure the best possible ‘go’ for our pupils.

OUR ‘HOW?’ is through the highest support and challenge for our schools and each other, underpinned by our principles.

Our employees benefit from a wide variety of support including extensive continuing professional learning and development opportunities, wellbeing and staff networks and access to Defined Benefit Pension Schemes (TPS and LGPS) for all staff. For more information on what it is like to work for the Trust, and the benefits you could access, please see our “Working in RLT” guide.

This role includes regulated activity relevant to children.

If you would like to have a confidential conversation with Nicola Cooke – PA to Headteacher, about the role, prior to application, then please email jobapplications@gosfordhillschool.org or telephone 01865 374971.
