Job summary

This is an important appointment for the school and we are keen to appoint a candidate of the highest calibre who will be able to make a significant contribution both to the management and development of the Physical Education Department and to the school as a whole.

We are looking for someone who is:

• passionate about high quality teaching and learning
• committed to a culture of ‘Sport for All’
• offers inspirational and caring guidance for young people
• works collaboratively, asks questions and is keen to learn.

The staff in the Physical Education department enjoy their work and strive to deliver interesting and stimulating lessons. There is a supportive climate in which there is much cooperation, resulting in detailed schemes of work and excellent resources.

The successful candidate will be given full support and will be encouraged to engage in further professional development which we believe will benefit both the individual and the school. The successful applicant is likely to be a form tutor. As the school transitioned from being a Local Authority Community School to forming a MAT, a key element was maintaining the full benefit and protection of the National Pay & Conditions. Similarly, staff appointed from other academies are not disadvantaged, e.g. by counting service towards sick pay and maternity leave. The school takes a constructive approach towards Performance Management & Appraisal and Pay Progression and offers many opportunities for career development through paid responsibilities.

Closing Date:

Applications must be submitted by 8am on Monday 19th April. Please note we may interview as applications are received. Shortlisted candidates will be contacted shortly after the closing date.

About The Ashcombe School

The Ashcombe School is a mixed comprehensive school for pupils of all abilities between the ages of 11 and 18 based in Dorking, Surrey. There are approximately 1,450 pupils on roll at Ashcombe (including around 250 in the Sixth Form) and 150 members of staff.

The school is highly sought-after and is over subscribed for September 2021. This is due to a wide range of factors including its facilities, academic results, standards of teaching, pastoral care, the wide range of trips and extra-curricular activities and the resultant attitudes of its pupils. In its January 2019 visit, Ofsted commented that “Pupils’ attitudes towards learning are very positive. Pupils are attentive and responsive in equal measure in lessons. As a result, there is a very harmonious learning atmosphere".
