Required for September 2024

TLR available for an outstanding candidate  


In partnership with the Archdiocese of Birmingham, the Lumen Christi Board of Directors and School Standards Committee of St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School are seeking to appoint an outstanding teacher of Modern Foreign Languages for September 2024. 

St Thomas Aquinas is a large and thriving Catholic comprehensive school in the south of Birmingham. Along with seven local primary schools, it is part of growing Catholic Multi Academy. It is a place where staff and students from all faiths live out the school mission. Examination results in summer 2022 and 2023 were excellent. Building on the ‘Good’ judgement by OFSTED, the Catholic Schools Inspectorate recently judged the school to be ‘Outstanding’ in all areas. As a result, we are an oversubscribed school and becoming more and more popular with families. 

The school has improved using a knowledge-based approach: the highest standards of behaviour and academic challenge for all regardless of background. St Thomas Aquinas Catholic School is unapologetically ambitious for the children we serve. 

This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic individual who has the knowledge, ability and confidence to have a huge impact on our students’ education from day one. We are looking for a specialist who: 

• is enthusiastic about recent developments in the Modern Foreign Languages curriculum 

• is passionate about teaching across key stages 3, 4 & 5 

• has high expectations of themselves and their students

• has a commitment to working collaboratively as part of a team. 

We teach French to all students from Year 7 and offer German as a GCSE option from Year 9. Prospective candidates must be able to teach French to at least GCSE level. A second language, especially German, would be useful.

The school will consider applications for full or part-time applicants. A TLR will be made available for an outstanding candidate. Among other areas, the candidate would lead on supporting students with English as an additional language and preparing students for GCSEs in languages spoken at home.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the right candidate to build something special and make a huge contribution in a major Catholic comprehensive school. 

Prospective candidates are encouraged to informally come and visit the school. The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.  An enhanced DBS check is required for all successful candidates.


Closing date for applications is 9am on Friday 3rd May 2024.

Interviews will take place on Tuesday 7th May 2024.
