The governors of this highly successful, partially selective, mixed school invite applications for the post of Head of Modern Foreign Languages.

You will need to be able to teach students up to and including A Level in at least one of these languages. The department benefits from excellent resources and a very committed and experienced team of linguists. Students study two languages from Year 7 and are obliged to continue with one until GCSE level. The successful candidate would be a specialist on one or more of our chosen languages. In 2018, 97.5% of all students secured five or more Grades 9-4 or equivalent at GCSE, and 86% of A level entries were graded A*- B. 67% of GCSE language results were graded 7 - 9 and 53% of A Level language results were graded A*-A. The school is situated on an attractive 35-acre site in the Green Belt, has excellent facilities and is committed to an extensive programme of staff development. Central London is easily reached by rail from Potters Bar and the school is close to motorway links. Accommodation on site can be available for those needing to relocate.
