Padgate Academy is on a journey to becoming a truly exceptional school for the community it serves. The school is building strong momentum and has recently seen a sharp rise in standards. To continue this trajectory, we need the best teachers for our students.

The study of languages broadens the horizons of young people, both in terms of opportunity and their personal cultural richness.


We are excited at the prospect of recruiting an exceptional languages teacher with a preferred specialism in Spanish, who would lead MfL within a broader Global Studies Faculty (Humanities and MfL).


For the right candidate there may be an exciting opportunity to support schools across The Challenge Academy Trust as a languages lead.

Applications are invited from energetic and ambitious teachers who understand the imperative for high standards and are eager to develop the teaching of MfL so that students of all abilities are motivated to succeed.

Applications from experienced teachers are welcome.
