Teacher of French

Posted Friday 22nd September 2017

We are seeking to appoint a motivated and committed French teacher to join our secondary team and would welcome applications from all teachers, particularly those who have already taught successfully at GCSE level in the UK.

You will be able to plan, deliver and assess lessons across all aspects of the KS3 and KS4 curriculum for French. The ability to offer a second subject would be a distinct advantage. The successful candidate will be a team player working as a member of an experienced team of teachers within which standards are high and who strive for excellence.

We are an outward-looking school, looking to strengthen links across and beyond the UK and we are committed to becoming a key player on the international educational stage. Our location is unique and the successful candidate will have many opportunities to experience an active lifestyle and stunning environment for both work and leisure.

You will be joining a friendly school, soon to become an academy, that is committed to literacy and that values teamwork and high achievement in all areas of our work with young people. Proven results, a wide repertoire of teaching and learning styles and a desire to make a difference are essential.

Five Islands Academy (Carn Gwaval base) is a new building, housing around 80 students at secondary level and around 200 at primary. We embrace the use of new technologies, providing laptops for each child at secondary level and a laptop and Smartboard for each member of staff. We would welcome applicants who are innovative in their use of IT and can develop their use as a strategy to raise standards across the curriculum.

Application forms and information pack are available below or on request by telephoning the school.
