An exciting opportunity has arisen for an outstanding teacher to join our thriving and successful Trust to teach Spanish in Key Stages 3 and 4 at Langdon Academy. The successful candidate will also need to offer French or German, at least to KS3.

Langdon Academy is a 4-16 school, sponsored by Brampton Manor Trust. We work in close partnership with Brampton Manor Academy (an outstanding 11-18 Academy), which is the other school within our multi-academy trust (MAT). There is great spirit, energy and optimism in the school since joining the MAT in 2014 which has led to substantial improvements and successes in every aspect of school life, with the school now achieving a very strong Progress 8 (O.67, DfE provisional) and substantially above the national average for the English Baccalaureate. However, this is by no means sufficient, given the potential of our students.

All indicators paint a picture of a rapidly improving school and the MFL department has played a major role in that progress and in its substantial contribution to our impressive Ebacc performance. Over 80% of our students take a language at GCSE and the results are exceptional. However, we do not intend to stand still, so this is a golden opportunity to strengthen our team further with the arrival of a new, talented and enthusiastic Spanish specialist. If that sounds like you, we’d be keen to hear from you. You will be joining a very strong team of linguists, with highly energetic and inspirational leaders who will provide excellent support for the next stages of your professional development.

This is an excellent time to join Langdon Academy and Brampton Manor Trust, providing great opportunities for further development. This post is designed to attract a more experienced colleague looking to broaden their experience. A higher TLR may be available for a suitably experienced candidate and there is considerable potential for further promotion within the school / trust.
