In September 2015 we opened our brand-new secondary section, making Whitefriars a fully integrated 3 to 18 through school. With our new state-of-the-art building and experienced and well-qualified staff, we are now offering our first Key Stage 3 and GCSE students a fabulous education.
In May 2018 our school was judged by OFSTED to be outstanding.
We are now planning our new sixth form which will open in September 2021.
Our students make rapid progress in an environment of love and care without bells.
Our school is a strong family where expectations are high, and children are treasured.
We believe that anyone can learn anything, and the growth mindset underpins everything we do.
We explicitly teach our children to live by positive shared values and to hold these deep in their hearts. We are a Rights Respecting school and teach our children how to ensure that everyone has the right to learn and be safe. This creates our wonderful learning environments and great behaviour.
Our pedagogical approach is rooted in the science of memory and how children learn. We ask lots of questions, we explain in small steps, we link to prior learning and we guide first practice. Our students think hard about their learning and we ensure they focus on their precise next steps.
We maintain a great work-life balance. Our behaviour procedures are centralised. Our marking policy allows for constructive student feedback in an efficient manner. Our home learning systems are well organised.
We are now looking for a teacher of Modern Foreign Languages to join our fantastic team. This position would suit either a newly or recently qualified teacher or a more experienced teacher looking for a new challenge in a new and innovative school.
All of our students learn Spanish in Years 7,8 and 9 (Key Stage 3). The majority of our students study Spanish GCSE. Our students also have the option to study GCSE French. All of our students also study Latin and Classical Civilisation in Years 7,8 and 9.
We are looking for someone who is ambitious for career development.
