Required ASAP

The post will be paid on the Schools Main Teacher Pay Scale MPS/UPS + TLR 2B


Kingsway Park High School was established in 2010 and joined the Altus Education Partnership in February 2022. We are now a very popular oversubscribed school (1350 students in years 7-11 and 190 staff) located in central Rochdale. We are very proud of the high-quality facilities, resources, and environment that we provide for both staff and students.

At Kingsway Park High School we strive to transform students’ lives. Through our relationships, we endeavour to instil both resilience and an intrinsic motivation to become confident, creative and highly skilled students, capable of meeting tomorrow’s challenges head on. We strive to establish a culture rooted in achievement and progress that encourages our students to grow academically, personally and socially; equipping them with the values of equality, fairness and openness. We pride ourselves on our relentless drive to achieve outstanding, high quality teaching that provides a safe, supportive and encouraging environment for all our students to be able to realise their academic potential in pursuit of educational excellence.

We are looking to appoint an experienced teacher of Modern Foreign Languages who is looking for a new challenge and is willing to join an innovative and forward-thinking department. The ideal candidate must have a real passion for their subject and be equipped with the skills to maximise outcomes for students at both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Modern Foreign Languages is currently taught three times as fortnight at Kingsway Park High School at Key Stage 3 and by Year 9 offers French and Spanish alongside the option for students to be examined in their home languages. Languages are becoming increasingly popular with our students, and we are looking for someone with the drive and passion to continue to increase the subject popularity through the mapping, sequencing and execution of a new KS3 curriculum model. This is an exciting time to remap the MFL curriculum and to further align the subject curriculum intent with the school’s new mission statement- ‘We Cooperate, We Pioneer, We Belong.’ The new Curriculum leader will also take responsibility for promoting MFL whole school through whole school assemblies, year group activities and possible drop-down days.

The MFL department at Kingsway Park High School is a supportive department that is well resourced with 4 IT suites.  There is a work area for staff within the department which allows the team to work cohesively to support and link French and Spanish into the curriculum offer. The new Curriculum Leader of MFL will be supported by an established member of SLT and will work alongside experienced and motivated staff.  Finally, this is a really exciting opportunity for someone who is vibrant, passionate and pioneering to really help the MFL department excel
