We are looking for someone with the creativity and drive to be integral in leading us to put MFL at the heart of our curriculum.  We need someone who is passionate about their subject and the importance of it.  Our students have massive potential.  If you have the qualities to be part of the team to take MFL to the next level, please get in touch.


We can offer you:

  • the opportunity to work within an Academy recently classified as ‘Good’ by Ofsted
  • a calm, positive and innovative learning environment
  • excellent facilities and resources for staff and students
  • opportunity to develop and grow leadership experience.  We are an outward facing organisation and look to learn from best practice nationally
