Teacher of Languages

  • Full time, permanent

  • Closing date: Monday 7th March 2022, midday

The role

Sutton High School is seeking an engaging and passionate teacher to deliver MFL lessons across the age range from Year 7 upwards. Our core languages are German, French and Spanish, and you must be able to teach at least two of these.

The successful candidate should have the capability to teach at least one of our languages to A level and the ability to nurture a positive regard for Modern Foreign Languages amongst our talented and motivated pupils. The ability to teach lower school (Year 7 and 8) Latin, or to offer an additional MFL, such as Russian or Italian will be a distinct advantage.

This role would be ideally suited to an ECT, within a supportive MFL Faculty, with superb ECT provision, but would also suit an experienced teacher.

There will be some twilight teaching involved in this position, with lessons concluding at 5pm.
