We seek a dedicated and innovative leader for our Modern Foreign Languages Department. The successful candidate will play a pivotal role in shaping the curriculum and fostering a culture of excellence in teaching and learning. With a focus on French language instruction for Key Stages 3 and 4, we are looking for someone with a genuine passion for languages and a track record of raising student attainment.

The ideal candidate will demonstrate strong leadership qualities and a commitment to driving student achievement. They will possess the creativity to deliver engaging and practical lessons that inspire students to excel. By fostering a culture of high expectations, they will empower learners to reach their full potential across both key stages.

Joining our team at The Rawlett School offers unparalleled professional development and collaboration opportunities within Academies Enterprise Trust. Committed to our mission of providing an excellent education for every child, we prioritise social equality and enrichment opportunities within our diverse community.

Our MFL curriculum goes beyond language proficiency, integrating cultural exploration and enrichment activities. Students develop competency in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, supported by a foundation of grammar and vocabulary. Cultural events and celebrations like Lunar New Year and Bastille Day enrich their understanding and appreciation of diverse traditions.

At KS4, students undertake AQA examinations, honing their ability to communicate effectively with native speakers. Our French studies aim to broaden horizons and foster a deeper understanding of global cultures. Through immersive experiences such as visits to France, including destinations like Paris and Boulogne, students gain invaluable language skills and cultural insights.
