Greenacre Academy and Walderslade Girls’ School are part of the Skills for Life Trust, also encompassing three primary schools.

Both are well established, successful secondary academies in Medway that will enable you to work alongside strong and motivated teams, who are committed to ensuring that our pupils make outstanding progress.

We are looking for a skilled MFL specialist eager to help students explore the subject further through creative and inspiring teaching. The ideal candidate would be able to teach Spanish to Key Stage 4 and French to Key Stage 3 or above.

Our students have demonstrated consistently strong improvements over a sustained period and we are always keen to innovate to deliver the very best education for our pupils.
