Job Description

Required from September 2018 potentially to August 2019

Chelmsford County High School for Girls is one of the most successful girls’ selective schools in the country.  This is, therefore, an ideal opportunity for a well-qualified teacher of German to gain experience teaching some highly motivated and able students.

This is also an exciting opportunity to join a thriving and dynamic department, with outstanding students, staff and facilities.  We are seeking a committed classroom practitioner, who is passionate about German, has the ability to drive students to great success, and is willing to contribute to the development of the subject and the wider life of the school.

All students study German throughout KS3, it is a very popular option at both GCSE and Advanced level.  We deliver the Edexcel (9-1) GCSE and Edexcel A level.  Examination results are excellent throughout. Students benefit from a modern suite of classrooms and a specialist language laboratory – a 21st century language learning environment. Staff in the German Department offer additional opportunities to students, including a well-established Exchange with our partner school in Backnang, as well as a number of lunchtime clubs and enrichment. The German Department is part of the Languages Faculty. This faculty structure provides an excellent support for the Subject, opportunity to share good practice and offers a corporate identity for language learning across the School.

We welcome applications from teachers in all sectors of education.
