This is an exciting career opportunity for a colleague who is passionate about the importance of Latin and Classics within our students’ curriculum. Working within a vibrant Languages faculty, you will be an outstanding classroom teacher with a passionate commitment to the progress of all students in our fully comprehensive and heavily oversubscribed school. We teach Latin as a compulsory discipline in Year 8 and Year 9, alongside French or Spanish. It is an increasingly popular choice at GCSE, after which students are able to study Classics at A Level.
"Every teacher needs to improve, not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better." This belief means all teachers are coached fortnightly using an instructional coaching model. The instructional coaching program forms part of our individualised and bespoke component of our CPD offer for every teaching member of staff.
This is part of our universal teacher CPD offer, which includes fortnightly subject specific CPD sessions alongside our whole school training.
We believe all teaching should be evidence informed so teachers can focus on high impact methods in their practice. Planning of lessons is based on principles derived from cognitive science and distributed through the department to drive collaboration. Using the best evidence available to develop our feedback policy, we focus on whole class feedback rather than written comments. The school aims for all teachers to have sensible workload and systems are continuously reviewed to ensure we are spending our time on the highest impact activities.
This post would be suitable for a newly qualified teacher or a more experienced colleague. The school has a comprehensive ECT induction programme and numerous CPD opportunities.
If you would like to play your part in delivering outstanding provision, whilst receiving the very best support to develop your career, then we would very much like to hear from you.
Please note that applications will be considered on a rolling basis.
