Teacher of German
Celebrated throughout the world as a centre of musical excellence, The Purcell School is the most vibrant, exciting and exhilarating place to work or study. We are a close-knit community dedicated to nurturing some of the world’s most talented young musicians and we recognize the unique privilege it is to work with these incredibly gifted students
We are seeking an experienced teacher with an outstanding knowledge of German language and culture, capable of delivering the highest standards of teaching and learning through exceptional classroom practice. The successful candidate will join a small but highly motivated team of MFL teachers, taking sole responsibility for all the German teaching in the school from Year 9 to Year 13 in the dedicated German classroom
French (Years 7-9) and German (Year 9) are taught as compulsory subjects in the curriculum. They are options at GCSE and A Level. While a modern language is not a core subject at GCSE, the uptake at Year 10 is consistently strong. The two languages are not set against each other, allowing some students to take both at GCSE if they wish and in the Sixth Form too. The Edexcel specifications at both GCSE and A Level serve our students well, offering academic rigour and an overview of the culture of the target language countries.
