Teacher of French - Full time/Part time

Are you passionate about the teaching of languages, an outstanding teacher of French, and looking to work within a department of likeminded individuals? If so, then Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar School may have the job for you.

Our wonderful school is seeking a dynamic, innovative and inspirational teacher of French, confident in teaching to A Level and beyond, to join our highly successful, selective school, from September 2024. The ability to teach German, be that to Key Stage 3 or higher, would be desirable. The position could be either full or part-time (0.7-0.8 FTE) depending on the candidate. The position would be suitable for an experienced teacher or an ECT.

The successful applicant must be passionate about languages, a team player and have the drive to maintain superb academic results, in addition to developing a thriving super-curricular programme through in-school and residential opportunities.

All students study two languages in Key Stage 3 from French, German and Spanish, with students also learning Latin and (optionally) Classical Greek. Almost all students will continue with one or two languages to GCSE, with growing numbers of students continuing to A Level, or joining our sixth form due to the reputation of the Langton Language Centre (LLC). The LLC also offers a wide range of additional super -curricular languages and opportunities, be that through learning one of the many other languages offered, through our annual A Level MFL conference or through working with other schools.

Simon Langton Girls’ Grammar is a highly regarded and successful school that places students’ academic success on a par with their wellbeing, creating a learning community where every individual matters. This is reflected in our approach to teaching and learning and as a teacher with the MFL department the successful candidate will be central to continuing to instil this ethos in our students.

Teacher of Biology - Full-time

Due to increasing student numbers and groups, we are seeking to appoint an outstanding Biology teacher to our science faculty. We welcome applications from talented individuals who will dedicate themselves to the implementation of the school’s vision and the development of the science department.

This role would suit either an Early Career Teacher (ECT) or somebody already teaching but ambitious to develop their career further.

The successful candidate must be confident in teaching A Level Biology and hold a real interest and passion in the development of super-curricular opportunities; the ability to teach more than one science to GCSE would be desirable but not essential.

The sciences are at the heart of our curriculum and a central pillar of our research driven super-curricular offer. Approximately 150 students are studying one of the three sciences at A Level, from a Sixth Form of nearly 400.

At GCSE, most students study the three separate sciences, with a smaller number following the Trilogy route. Many students leave us to undertake science related courses at university, with a consistently high number progressing to Oxbridge, Russell Group and other top-20 universities. We have a strong reputation for students leaving to undertake medicine, dentistry and veterinary sciences, and specific support in place to help them fulfil these ambitions.

Having moved into a new building in 2021, the science department is comprised of nine labs and works alongside three experienced, full time, technicians. Based on a 14-acre site, including two acres of woodland that are home to Biojoyversity (Biojoyversity is a website for nature, the climate and for innovation.) and Encompass (Encompass. Young people reimagining planetary wellbeing (encompasscentre.org)), the school places the same importance on academic excellence as it does on mental wellbeing and the development of non-examined skills.

All teachers of science are given the opportunity to develop and lead research opportunities for our students; previous and current projects have been/are supported by the likes of the Royal Society, major pharmaceutical companies and universities. These projects feed into the rich and varied offer delivered through the Langton Extended Curriculum, working to ensure that we help shape ambitious, confident, independent and creative students, ready to take their place in society.

We are also passionate about the wellbeing of our staff, and in addition to a generous allocation for PPA, we have pledged our commitment to the DfE wellbeing Charter, declaring our commitment to protect, promote and enhance the wellbeing and mental health of all our employees. 

If you have a passion for science that you want to share with motivated and committed students, we welcome your application.
