Prep School Teacher of French (with Latin desired)- Part Time (0.5FTE)

Closing date: 16 Oct 2019

Required from January 2020

Competitive salary plus benefits

Exciting opportunity for a dedicated French Teacher, preferably with Latin, to work in our vibrant, busy Prep School.


At Sydenham High Prep School, we teach both a Modern Foreign Language and a classical language to our pupils. We believe that the earlier a child is exposed to a foreign language, the faster the language in question is acquired, which in turn facilitates the learning of other foreign languages later in life.

The ideal candidate will be an inspiring teacher, will know how to make language learning fun, and will be willing to participate in and organise trips.
