MFL - Second in Department

We are seeking to appoint an inspirational and highly effective linguist as second in charge in the department, to support the Learning Area by developing pedagogy and fostering a love of languages across the Academy. The specific role will be determined according to the individual strengths of the appointed candidate. However, it will predominantly focus on a strand or particular key stage in order to improve progress and coordinate the work of colleagues.

French and Spanish are taught throughout the 11 - 18 age range and at all levels and ability. We also offer German from year 10 as this is being phased out. KS3 has a varied and engaging curriculum which gives both breadth and depth opportunities. At key stage 4 and 5, we follow the AQA specification. We offer a collaborative department with experienced teachers and exceptional FLAs, keen to bring authenticity to the learning environment.

The successful candidate will be a team player, who will instil a passion for MFL through high quality learning and teaching and have proven success in teaching and learning at Key Stages 3, 4 and possibly 5, ideally in both French and Spanish. The school offers a bespoke CPD programme, research and development, links and networks with other outstanding schools as well as a plethora of extra-curricular and cross-curricular working opportunities.

The school sees the form tutor as a key role in the support, development and welfare of the students and teachers are expected to undertake this role with the same standards and commitment as their subject role.

Why come to Hinchingbrooke?

This is a fantastic school to work in: on interview, we ask candidates for their impressions of the School and without fail they comment on how wonderful our students are, the positive team ethos amongst staff and how friendly and welcoming the School is.

If you are an outstanding teacher, it really is worth applying for this post and joining somewhere special. We are seeking to appoint a candidate who is passionate about their subject area; a team player who will thrive on collaboration and teamwork. Someone who really wants to make a difference!

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. This post will be subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure.
