A National Teaching School




Full time
Required for September 2017

‘The values on which all of the school’s work is based are very clear. You believe that students should be happy at the school’ (Ofsted, 2013).

Lawrence Sheriff School is a boys’ grammar school of approximately 900 students, over 300 of whom are in the sixth form. We believe that much of our success - including our consistently high Ofsted grading and our high rankings in DFE performance tables - can be directly linked to our emphasis upon LSS being a happy place to work for both pupils and staff.

The 2013 Ofsted report goes on to say that ‘the school is a harmonious community where students with different needs can thrive; achieve highly in their academic work and enjoy a wide range of enrichment opportunities.’  These comments sum up the distinctive ethos and values of the school.

The MFL department is one of the most popular departments in the school, with all students currently taking an MFL in either French or German at GCSE and a large number of students taking both subjects in the sixth form.  In addition to these two languages, we are hoping to introduce Spanish into the curriculum, initially as a GCSE option with a view to offering it at KS5 in the long term.

We are looking to appoint a highly qualified teacher of Spanish and French. The successful candidate must be able to teach Spanish to KS5 and French to at least KS4.  They will demonstrate passion and enthusiasm for learning and will be able to inspire and convince our boys of the relevance of the MFL curriculum.

The appointed candidate will have the opportunity to play a key role in helping promote and enable students to become effective, enthusiastic and independent learners.

This is a very special opportunity to further your career within an outstanding school and Lawrence Sheriff School is committed to the professional development of its entire staff through varied and interesting opportunities to enhance their practice.
