Uppingham School is currently seeking an exceptional Teacher of Spanish and French to join our dedicated Modern Languages faculty from January 2024.
You will teach Spanish and French to our motivated and talented students across the school. Additionally, you will play a vital role in shaping the lives of our students, not only through your exceptional classroom teaching, but also through your involvement in our extensive co-curricular program.
