This is an opportunity to join one of the most high-achieving and forward-looking independent schools in London. We are looking for an outstanding linguist to lead our thriving Modern Languages department at this over-subscribed, academically selective school for girls aged 11 to 18.

Queen's College, London is seeking to appoint a well-qualified and inspirational classroom practitioner as Head of Modern Languages. This is a crucial position of responsibility: the person appointed will provide academic leadership of the subject and will work closely with the senior leadership team as part of our commitment to excellence in the languages. The department is supportive and innovative. The subject is taught with academic rigour and the department achieves very strong results in public examinations. The successful candidate will be expected to teach French to A-level and Spanish to at least Key Stage 3.

Queen's College, London is a leading independent day school for girls between the ages of 11 and 18, occupying four large historic houses on Harley Street in central London. Our outstanding Prep School, for girls aged 4 to 11, is situated in a separate building, just around the corner on Portland Place.

As the first school in the UK to grant academic qualifications to women, Queen's has a proud history of educating some of this country's pioneering females. We are now one of the most high-achieving, diverse and forward-looking schools in London.

This is a full-time maternity cover role for a period of one year from September 2021.

Applications should be made on the Queen's College application form and sent, with a covering letter, to the Principal's Executive Assistant by e-mail via the button below. Applications will be considered when they are received by the College and interviews may be held at any stage. Early applications are warmly encouraged.

Queen's College recognises the positive value of diversity, promotes equality and challenges discrimination. We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds.
