Teacher of Modern Foreign Languages – Fixed Term Contract – Maternity Cover 0.8 fte (MPR/UPR)


We are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic teacher to cover for our Modern Foreign Languages teacher during her forthcoming maternity leave.

A much smaller secondary school than the average, Samuel King’s School is nevertheless fully comprehensive and serves a unique community.  We are seeking to recruit a candidate of the highest calibre.  Someone who can excite, enthuse and get students fully involved in the study of their subject.  The post is for Key Stage 3 and 4 Modern Foreign Languages teaching and some Key Stage 2 primary Languages teaching. As we are a small school, some additional curriculum teaching across the school will be required.  The teaching will be over four full days from 19th April 2021 until the end of the Spring term 2022 (1st April 2022).


The governing body is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.  This post will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check.


To apply, candidates should email Pamela Seaton at to request an application form. Completed applications can be either emailed or sent by post.

The closing date for all applications is Monday 1st February at 12noon.  Shortlisting and interviews will be scheduled for later that week or into the following week. At this stage, we envisage interviews to take place virtually due to the current school closures.
