OFSTED said in 2017: Pupils flourish because they are extremely well looked after in a nurturing and enabling environment. Pupils demonstrate an intrinsic pride in their work and a love of learning. The school transforms pupils’ lives and opens up the world to them.

We are seeking to appoint a talented, creative and innovative language practitioner to our staff team who can be instrumental in furthering the magic we create in our very successful Academy provision supporting children from KS2 to KS5 in the development of their language skills.

The successful candidates should have a clear understanding about effective teaching, raising and sustaining achievement and the care and support of complex young individuals. They should be an excellent communicator, able to engage effectively with children and their parents/carers. We are looking for someone who can inspire a love of languages, someone who is passionate about their subject and can maintain the excellent progress made by our students to date.
