Winner of an SSAT Educational Outcomes Award for 2015, The Macclesfield Academy is a popular and oversubscribed 11-16 school serving a diverse community in South Macclesfield.

We require :

Teacher of MFL





  • Teacher of MFL

    Closing date: Monday 11th November 2019

    We are looking to appoint a high quality part-time (0.5) MFL teacher who is fully committed to the aims and values of the Academy. It is essential that the person we appoint can teach either French or Spanish to GCSE.  MFL has an established track record of successfully recruiting students for Key Stage 4 languages and we expect, to have four GCSE groups in Year 9 next year as well as three in Year 10.  Currently the teaching for this post is spread over four days each week.  We recognise this would not suit everyone and a larger contract fraction may be available to a colleague willing and able to fill the four days with supply work or to contribute elsewhere in the curriculum.  We believe this post offers an excellent opportunity for an experienced or a newly qualified colleague looking to join a friendly and successful team.

    We expect to make a permanent appointment but may appoint for a fixed term of one year in the first instance pending a further analysis of our curriculum needs. Our pay policy makes it clear that we do not automatically replicate the salaries that teachers have earned in previous posts and we expect to appoint to M1-M6 in the first instance.  However, in the case of a teacher with a proven track record of exam success or other exceptional qualities, we would be prepared to appoint onto the Upper Pay Spine.

    Our Subject Leaders for MFL, Mrs Sally Burgess and Mrs Janet Frank, will be happy to answer any questions you may have. They can be contacted on or .
