We are a Multi Academy Trust comprising of six secondary schools and one primary school with over 750 employees and over 5,500 students, based in Dudley, West Midlands.

Wombourne High School is seeking to appoint an inspirational and ambitious Head of MFL to join our school in January 2025, sooner if possible. We are looking to appoint a talented professional with very good subject knowledge and a clear understanding of effective and engaging teaching and learning to lead our capable and supportive department. At Wombourne High School we highly value personal attributes of hard work, positivity and kindness, and we are looking for staff who can model these values.

The successful candidate should be an outstanding classroom practitioner who can build on current developments within the school and Trust, to continue to improve outcomes and raise aspirations for all students. Currently, all students study either French or Spanish at KS3. At KS4 we offer GCSE courses in both French and Spanish. MFL is a popular subject, and uptake at GCSE is strong. The department is well resourced. The ability to teach both languages to GCSE level would be advantageous but is not compulsory.

Wombourne High School has an excellent reputation for staff development and the Trust dimension gives real opportunities for teachers to share ideas and learn. We welcome applications from well-organised and inspirational teachers who are driven by the desire to offer elite educational experiences to all students. You should have high expectations of students, and self, displaying energy and enthusiasm in and out of the classroom and contribute to the school’s overall success.

We are sure that once you visit us and meet our students, you’ll find that we are the school for you and your career journey, our CPD through school and in partnership with Invictus is exemplary.

We would strongly encourage you to get in touch and arrange a visit. We want the very best teachers for our students and look forward finding out if you are that person.
