Teacher of MFL - (Spanish with French)

Permanent post

Required as soon as possible


Full time/part time requests considered

We recognise the place of MFL in a 2023 school curriculum is stronger than ever. The successful candidate will be a teacher who is passionate about their subject, is an excellent practitioner and is committed to bringing out the best in our students. This post is suitable for candidates with all levels of experience. The post will suit Spanish teachers who can also teach French.

We believe that our curriculum is designed with a linguist at the centre. The department consists of a supportive team who continue to improve and increase numbers year on year. The department has access to their own classrooms and resources are shared between all staff in the department and are regularly reviewed. The schemes of learning have developed over the past five years with a revamped KS3, KS4 and KS5 curriculum ready for delivery. We are keen to continue to develop this further to meet the needs of all students. We believe in evidence informed teaching and links to research informed practice.

You will be joining a school that has a vision to be an educational centre of excellence based on the principle that effective relationships are the key to positive outcomes. The staff team has a student centred approach and we have a robust teacher education programme. We want to invest in successful applicants and help them progress through their own career. We are looking for candidates who share the same values as us as we continue to grow our team.
