Head of Modern Foreign Languages (Warwick School)
We are looking to recruit an inspirational and committed teacher to join us as Head of Modern Foreign Languages from September 2022. This is an exciting opportunity to lead a large team. The successful candidate will be able to teach to Oxbridge level and will have excellent people-management skills. The ability to teach French and German with at least one of these languages to A level would be advantageous.
The Modern Languages Department currently comprises eight teachers and three assistants and is housed in a purpose-built block containing seven classrooms and a workroom. We currently follow AQA for A level and Edexcel for IGCSE. Boys choose two languages from French, German and Spanish to study throughout years 7 and 8, and can then elect to continue with both or one for year 9 and onwards for GCSE. Talented linguists who also want to continue their pursuit of classical languages or particular creative subjects have appreciated the flexibility that such an option system allows. We have a strong cohort of A level linguists in all three languages, often in shared groups with girls from King’s High, and we boast a strong tradition of sending linguists to Oxbridge and other leading universities.
The Department also offers a range of extracurricular activities and trips, with recent visits to the Opal Coast, Alicante, Cologne, Lyon and Barcelona. There is a real focus on developing a passion for modern languages throughout the school, with German games and cooking, film clubs, an MFL book club, Flamenco dancing and debating societies in both French and Spanish.
