Modern Foreign Languages, Second in Department ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Main or Upper Pay scale & TLR2b (Inner London)

 Applications are invited from enthusiastic and highly capable teachers to either start or develop their career in a school which places good quality teaching and learning as its highest priority.

You would be joining the well-established and successful Language Department and would be required to teach at least one language up to KS5 (preferably German), as well as either French or Spanish up to KS4. The ability to teach a non-European language would also be desirable, but not essential. All students learn French from Year 7 and then some can learn a second foreign language in Year 8. We have a strong double linguists programme with excellent results. We are looking for someone with enthusiasm, vision, resilience and strong interpersonal skills. The Languages department is a centre of excellence at William Ellis School and you would be joining a strong, committed team.

The successful candidate will be:

  • a highly motivated and inspirational classroom practitioner
  • committed to maximising pupil progress through setting high standards and by delivering effective teaching and learning
  • able to inspire, lead, support and challenge students to achieve their potential.

If you are seeking a challenging and highly rewarding position, enriching the lives of students and the local community, we look forward to hearing from you.
