FRAMWELLGATE SCHOOL DURHAM
TEACHER OF FRENCH
Required from September 2023
We wish to appoint a highly motivated, ambitious, and reflective teacher of French to bring a high level of subject expertise and help to improve the quality of teaching in this forward-thinking and innovative school. Over the last five years we have assembled an excellent group of senior leaders and teachers who have had a significant impact on the quality of teaching and student outcomes. With an aspirational culture, and a commitment to evidence informed teaching, we want to achieve more. We were judged “Good” in all areas in our last Ofsted inspection (July 2021) and student outcomes are strong and improving. Our 6th form outcomes are amongst the best in the region. We have made significant improvements to our curriculum, teaching, and professional development programme and we are committed to reducing teacher workload.
Framwellgate School Durham is an 11-18 non-selective secondary school and Single Academy Trust. The school roll has increased by 35% over the last five years, and we now have more than 1300 students who attend the school.
The successful candidate will possess subject expertise alongside energy and enthusiasm. They will believe that every young person deserves the very best education. A commitment to raising achievement, and a willingness to learn, train and develop as a teacher are all essential. We can offer you an environment where student behaviour is excellent, prior attainment levels are amongst the highest in the North-East, and our students and staff are a pleasure to work with. With over 20 new teachers, including many ECTs appointed over the last three years, we have quickly become a vibrant and exciting school in which to start or develop your career.
Framwellgate School Durham has been selected to be part of the latest phase in the Schools Rebuilding Programme and we envisage a fantastic new school building to be ready for September 2025.
