Kings Priory School wishes to appoint an academic and highly motivated teacher of MFL to contribute to and develop the already high standard of teaching and learning in the department. This is an exceptional opportunity for a NQT or an experienced teacher who is passionate about languages, is a team player and is keen to develop and shape pupils’ experience of MFL at Kings Priory School. As an all through school, offering three languages, the ideal candidate would be able to teach pupils from Y5 upwards, have German to A-level and the ability to teach either French and/or Spanish to at least GCSE level. A willingness to participate in the wider life of the school, in particular promoting MFL through a range of enrichment activities such as overseas study visits, is absolutely essential.
Kings Priory School is an all-through school providing high quality education to pupils aged 4 to 19. The result of a merger between a thriving independent school and an outstanding community primary school, we are an inclusive, non-fee paying School with excellent teachers, a family environment, motivated pupils and a commitment to educating the whole child, both in and outside of the classroom. Kings Priory School was recently placed as joint-top performing state school in the region for its GCSE performance in 2016 and remains a top performing school in 2017, ranking no.1 for attainment in The Real Schools Guide 2017. This comes after The Chronicle named us in 2016 as having the joint best GCSE results in the North East last year, with 92% of pupils achieving at least 5 A*-C GCSEs including Maths and English. Amongst other top headlines, 96% of pupils received an A*-C in Mathematics and in English. It was a very similar scene in 2017 with 95 % of pupils achieving a 4 (new grading) or above in English and 93 % above a 4 in Mathematics.
The School operates across two neighbouring sites in the centre of the attractive coastal village of Tynemouth with short commuting links into Newcastle upon Tyne. Kings Priory School is part of Woodard Academies Trust multi-academy sponsor whose aim is to be a provider of world class education, transforming lives within and across communities. Our Christian Ethos helps to make our school a thoughtful community and we are welcoming, positive and open to pupils and staff of all faiths and none.
Kings Priory School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
