The governors of Whitmore High School are seeking to appoint an inspiring and passionate teacher of Spanish and French to teach across Key Stage 3, 4 and 5.
This is an exciting role that is required due to the large and increasing uptake in both Spanish and French at GCSE. In September 2020, over half the year group continued with GCSE, with some pupils opting for both Spanish and French GCSE. Both languages also have a large uptake at A-Level.
Whitmore High School is a Centre of Excellence for Secondary International Languages for the Central South Consortium. Our Head of Languages has a dual role as the International Languages lead for Secondary and Primary at the Central South Consortium. The successful candidate will join a team of 2 International Languages specialists, who are truly innovative and forward thinking. The International Languages department has a close working partnership with Cardiff University taking an active part in the Cardiff Mentoring Project and Erasmus Student teaching programme.
Whitmore High School is a new 11-18 Comprehensive School, which opened in September 2018. The school serves boys and girls from the Western side of Barry, and has been established with the strong support of the local community, parents, and the Vale of Glamorgan.
