Full time Teacher of MFL – two year fixed term contract : TMS


“Bartholomew School provides its students with an outstanding education”



We require, for September 2022, a well-qualified, enthusiastic and dedicated teacher of Mandarin to join our highly successful Modern Foreign Languages department.

This is an exciting opportunity for a talented Mandarin teacher to help us build on the success of our Mandarin enrichment programme as we introduce the language into the Year 7 and Year 8 curriculum for the first time as an option alongside French and German. The role would include some outreach teaching in our partnership secondary and primary schools and we would also wish to maintain the after-school club for students in older year groups. As we grow our Mandarin provision over the next few years, with the support of the Swire Chinese Language Foundation, we aim to establish a viable GCSE group and to open students’ eyes to Chinese culture and the opportunities that exist for them in China and the Chinese speaking world.

The successful candidate could be a colleague new to the profession, looking to begin their career at an outstanding school, who would be supported through our excellent NQT programme; equally, we would be delighted to receive applications from more experienced teachers seeking new challenges. The school will pay for and support the visa application process. Although this is initially a two-year contract, based on good performance and uptake at KS4, the contract is very likely to be considered to be made permanent thereafter.

This presents an exciting opportunity to join this rapidly expanding, oversubscribed academy that has been judged by Ofsted to be Outstanding in both 2009 and 2013.  The school has a long held tradition of high academic standards nurtured within a caring, inclusive school community.  We have a successful track record of providing an education which delivers consistently high standards as well as the resilience and emotional intelligence which ensures that our young people have the potential to be leaders of the future. 

Bartholomew School is a friendly and vibrant comprehensive school of over 1300 students situated in the village of Eynsham, between Oxford to the east and the Cotswolds to the west. Judged Outstanding by Ofsted, we pride ourselves on having the highest of academic expectations for our students within a caring and nurturing environment.


It is central to our vision that people enjoy their time with us and we do everything that we can to ensure that a positive school environment promotes development of staff and students alike. We offer the successful candidate a commitment to providing excellent professional development and support in developing their career. This will be a key appointment for our continued success.


The EPA is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people/vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  Successful candidates will be required to undertake and receive a satisfactory Disclosure & Barring Service check as well as attending safeguarding training as part of this role.
