What skills and experience we're looking for

The MFL department comprises of 4 full-time teaches as well as one part-time, including a Curriculum Leader. We work collaboratively to support each other both with the demands of our work and our wellbeing. Being an all-through school, we also teach French and Spanish from KS2 which allows us to have a well-rounded view of the curriculum.

The MFL department offers a broad and ambitious curriculum where we offer an enriching experience in French and Spanish at KS3, paving the way for an exciting journey into KS4!

The decision to offer French and Spanish at KS4 is about cultivating a community of dedicated learners who breathe life into our language program. Opting for languages at KS4 results in smaller, closely-knit cohorts, providing an opportunity for personalised support from teachers and nurturing a genuine passion for language excellence.

Like the Academy results as a whole, the most recent GCSE results saw students making good progress: P8 was the highest it has been in the Academy's history and the gaps between the progress of SEN and Pupil Premium students continues to narrow. Aylesbury Vale Academy has outperformed all other local non-selective schools.

The successful application will be an individual who embodies a genuine passion for learning, possesses robust interpersonal skills, demonstrates resilience, excels as a teacher and boasts exceptional subject knowledge, including a track record of delivering Spanish GCSE. While not mandatory, an added advantage would be an interest and proficiency in teaching French at the KS3 level.

Join our team at Aylesbury Vale Academy and become part of a vibrant learning community dedicated to empowering students and fostering academic excellence. Apply now to embark on an exciting journey in education with us
