French Teacher, Full-Time


At Ysgol Gyfun Heolddu we are proud to be a warm, welcoming school that has high expectations of all learners in our community. Staff, students, parents and partners work closely together towards our mission statement ‘Achieving Excellence Together’.

Estyn 2018 found that Heolddu “is a caring learning community that promotes inclusivity and wellbeing successfully” and that our pupils are “courteous and respectful towards staff, visitors and fellow pupils. They behave well, arrive promptly to lessons and demonstrate positive attitudes to learning. Pupils are proud to belong to the Heolddu school community”.

In 2019, we achieved our best ever GCSE and A Level results, performing above family, LA and Wales averages in all key performance indicators at KS4.

As part of the education sector’s commitment to safeguarding and promoting welfare of children and young people, it is expected that all staff undergo appropriate enhanced DBS checks (formerly known as a CRB check). The Local Authority will pay for this prior to the applicant starting.

Employment will be subject to satisfactory documentary evidence of registration, and continuing registration. It is your responsibility to ensure you register and continue to register as part of your terms and conditions of employment.
