Teacher of Spanish
Wembley High Technology College is one of the highest performing schools in the country. Nationally, the achievement of our pupils is exceptional; in 2019, our Progress 8 score of +1.58 has been recognised as the 4th highest in the country by the Department for Education. This progress from Key Stage 2 to GCSE has a transformative impact on our pupils’ life chances and last year, over 60% of pupils leaving us went on to Russell Group Universities to study a range of academic subjects. In September 2020, Wembley High has welcomed pupils from North Brent School in Year 7 while their new £27 million building is completed. The addition of a new school in our Multi-Academy Trust provides exciting development and leadership opportunities for staff in the years to come.
The MFL Department
We are looking for a teacher who can make a significant contribution to this strong and successful department and teach Spanish across Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. At GCSE, almost all pupils study Spanish and the subject is a popular choice in the Sixth Form with many pupils going on to study related courses at university. Many of our most able linguists complete their GCSE Spanish in Year 10 and study GCSE Portuguese in Year 11. French is also a popular optional subject at GCSE. The ideal candidate would also be able to offer either French or Portuguese to GCSE standard. As a top performing department within the school and country, pupils excel in GCSE Spanish; in 2019, 60% of our students achieved 9-7 grades and 81% of our students achieved 9-5. At A Level in 2019 67% of students were awarded A*-B grades in Spanish. Across the school our A-level pass rate stands at 100% and 78% of exams were awarded A*-B grades.
