Creating tomorrow’s citizens today

Simon Balle All through school is a unique place to work, being one of only 170 all-through schools nationally and the second to be established in Hertfordshire. Working here opens up so many opportunities and the ethos and culture is such that so many people flourish professionally. It is a happy place with highly motivated staff and students who all want to do their very best to see young people succeed. Indeed many staff live locally, send their own children here and have recommended their friends and family to seek employment at the school. Ofsted visited the school in May 2018 and we were recognised as an “Outstanding” school.

We are looking for a creative and dynamic teacher to join our MFL department to teach Spanish (up to GCSE) and French at KS3. The position would suit either an experienced teacher or an NQT.

  • Excellent subject knowledge up to GCSE
  • A desire to share commitment to innovation and collaboration.
  • The ability to employ a range of teaching and learning strategies to promote active learning
  • The energy to inspire, motivate and challenge students

What we can offer you:

  • An all through learning community for children aged 4+to 18 years (although still developing)
  • A clear vision and purpose, underpinned by strong moral values
  • An established supportive staff who share practice and care for each other with well-being at its core
  • On site parking
  • Extra curricular sporting clubs for staff

And students who: (Ofsted May 2018)

  • Display exemplary behaviour; relationships between teachers and pupils are very strong
  • Feel safe and cared for by staff
  • Are motivated by high quality teaching
  • Make exceptionally strong progress in their learning
  • Are given a wide range of opportunities and enrichment to develop and flourish
