Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages job summary

We are seeking to appoint an inspirational and highly effective linguist with Spanish as their main language, to foster a love of languages across Rudheath Senior Academy. This is an exciting opportunity for an excellent practitioner to work collaboratively with the department to raise academic achievement and to ensure all students make good progress in MFL across Key Stages 3 and 4. The successful candidate will be a team player, who will instil a passion for MFL through high quality learning and teaching, ideally in both Spanish and French; just Spanish is also acceptable. The school offers a detailed CPD programme, newly built learning environments, and a plethora of extra-curricular and cross-curricular opportunities. Spanish is a popular subject choice at Key Stage 4, as students are conscientious and motivated to learn a language as part of a group of subjects that provide the academic and personal development skills to open their eyes to the world of possibility. Recently, we have added French to the Key Stage 3 curriculum. Having strong classroom management skills and excellent subject knowledge, the postholder will be able to achieve the best possible outcomes for our students. Monitoring and tracking the progress of students through data is essential, as is the ability to work effectively as part of the Modern Foreign Languages team. This role is suitable for all professionals in their teaching career, including Early Career Teachers.

Rudheath Senior Academy is an 11-16 secondary school in Northwich, Cheshire. At the centre of our culture are two key qualities – Excellence and Kindness. Our mission is simple; to ensure that every one of our students leave us equipped with the necessary skills, qualifications and mindset to take the next steps in leading a deeply rewarding life.

Since the school joined North West Academies Trust in 2018, there has been nearly £8m invested to improve facilities for both children and staff. This investment has produced facilities that are second-to-none and enabled specialist teaching across the curriculum.

The work to rebuild the school has been about more than bricks and mortar. Educationally, we do things differently. A separate Year 7 Hub was created to ease the transition for our younger pupils from primary to secondary education. The introduction of careers development alongside a breadth of enrichment days has significantly increased pupils’ future opportunities.

We endeavour to nurture caring, trusting and positive relationships between students, staff, parents and carers, and we make a promise that every pupil will leave here as a resilient, independent and happy individual.

Rudheath Senior Academy is committed to the safeguarding of children and young people. An enhanced disclosure from the DBS is required.
