Temporary Teacher of MFL

The Sir John Colfox Academy


Temporary Teacher of MFL – 2 terms

Required for January 2018, an enthusiastic, well-qualified and successful classroom practitioner to join our successful and vibrant MFL department.  You would be joining a team of 5 language specialists who are supported by a specialist TA and foreign language assistants.  It is a great team to join. 

We are looking for a colleague who can teach Spanish to GCSE and A Level. The department currently offers courses in French and Spanish at GCSE and A Level in our very successful Joint Sixth form.  As a former language college the school has retained its commitment to languages and there is an excellent take up for the subject.  Even though we have now chosen to make languages non-compulsory at GCSE, in this year’s option process Spanish was the most popular option subject! 

Our academy is high performing and outcomes at GCSE and A Level are excellent.   In 2016 our Attainment 8 score of 50.3 was well above the national average, as was our performance in the ‘E Bacc’ to which our MFL faculty contributes.  The 3 year average individual ALPS grade is ‘outstanding’ for all languages in our Sixth Form.  In 2017 Spanish again achieved the ‘outstanding’ benchmark.  

This is a great time to join our school as we are one year into membership of the Minerva Learning Trust, a multi-academy trust with three of our feeder primary schools and there will be opportunities to work closely with these schools.  We are a member of The Pixl Club, The Jurassic Coast Alliance and The Jubilee Network.  We have several staff involved in national initiatives and are an outwardly facing school in a beautiful part of the country!  This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment. The school was opened in 1999 and has excellent facilities and a friendly staff.  It is the only school in the town and serves the whole community. 

If you would like to discuss the post in any further detail please do ring 01308 422291and the Headteacher will be happy to talk with you.
