Huxlow Academy

Huxlow Academy is a fully inclusive school, located in Irthlingborough, East Northamptonshire. Our students are a
vibrant and varied mix that bring an energy that is not found in many other schools. The loyalty the students show for
the staff and community, whom they recognise care so deeply about them, is what makes Huxlow a very rewarding
and fun place to work. If you want to work with a team committed to making a difference to the lives of the young
people in our community, we want to hear from you!

Huxlow Academy’s languages department has had an excellent record of exam results over nearly a decade, whilst
teaching the vast majority of the year group cohorts, and are consistently raising standards in terms of attitude to
learning, engagement and outcomes. Over the past 10 years, the results in French have been outstanding whilst being
a core subject, unlike many schools where it is an option. Since the new grade system has been implemented, the
results have consistently reached 84% at grade 4 and above and 65 % at grade 5 and above. The team are looking for
a new member who will share their strong subject knowledge, enthusiasm and cultural awareness with the students.

The successful candidate will:
• Be a team player, committed to departmental priorities
• Have strong subject knowledge and be willing to embrace new teaching techniques
• Demonstrate consistently positive progress with their teaching groups
• Be committed to using evidence-based pedagogy in their own classroom, to drive standards in French
• Be determined that all students should have the best opportunity for success.
Candidates must be eligible to live and work in the UK.

Training and development opportunities will be offered. All staff are encouraged to study further and the trust will
actively support staff to obtain relevant further qualifications where possible.

Tove Learning Trust is a fast moving and exciting place to work. The trust schools have a shared vision and purpose: to
deliver outstanding educational experiences that lead to inspiring outcomes. Each academy has a strong individual
identity and tailors their educational provision to serve their local community. Academies within the trust collaborate
to share expertise and maximise opportunities and experiences for our students.

The Trustees of Tove Learning Trust are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young
people and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
