Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages
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
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 is the top performing school in North Tyneside at Key Stage 4; pupils achieve exceptional outcomes which are well above national averages. In 2018 98% of pupils achieved a 4+ in English and 93% of pupils achieved a 4+ in mathematics. We are also very proud of the outcomes students achieve in the Sixth Form, where, in 2018, the average grade was a B- and many students went to read their chosen subjects at Russell Group universities.
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.
