What skills and experience we're looking for

We are characterised by how we treat our people

“Pupils enjoy attending this thriving and popular school. They feel a strong sense of belonging to the school community. Pupils achieve well and almost all successfully move on to apprenticeships, A levels or other forms of education, employment or training. Staff have high expectations of behaviour and know pupils very well”.

Ofsted April 2023

At SJT we value and care for all our staff and take staff well-being seriously. We take staff’s work/life balance seriously and this is reflected by, amongst other things, ensuring teachers receive a minimum 20% non-contact time. We are committed to reducing marking and planning workload.

We wish to appoint an excellent teacher to join our successful P.E. department. Our diverse Physical Education provision allows all students to enjoy and succeed in a range of physical activity whilst improving their health and well-being. We place an emphasis on teaching PE as part of a broad and ambitious curriculum and give our students access to a wide range of sporting activity, both through lessons and through extra-curricular provision. We see PE as a route to develop a passion for sport as well as a route to developing healthy lifestyles and positive mental health and well being.

We offer NCFE health and fitness at KS4 and this provides a valuable route for students to explore the sport and fitness industry. This forms an important part of our ambitious, academic curriculum and is part of the KS4 subject preferences programme. Through this course, students gain an insight into the wider implications of fitness testing, personal training and development and the implications of healthy lifestyles.


What the school offers its staff

This is a great opportunity for the right candidate to contribute to our work and benefit from an excellent environment, where teachers are encouraged to progress their careers with us. We have great facilities ensuring students and staff have the best learning environment in which to achieve. SJT is a very positive community, with our recent staff survey showing that over 95% of our staff enjoy coming to work and are proud to be part of our school. At SJT we view the professional development of all staff as a priority and we invest heavily in the CPD of all colleagues. We have an excellent ECT induction programme and make a string commitment to the wider professional learning of teachers who join us, making this a great opportunity for a newly, recently qualified or more experienced colleague.

We are looking for a teacher who shares our drive and passion to inspire our students with their love of their subject and the motivation to ensure every student achieves through:

  • Outstanding classroom practice and an ability to engage all young people.
  • A commitment to contribute to our enrichment programme
  • The ability to motivate students of all abilities to achieve their full potential.
  • A passion and commitment to raise standards and achievement.
  • The ability to work and contribute as part of a team.
  • Commitment, resilience, patience, hard work and a good sense of humour.
  • The willingness to do what it takes to achieve a goal.

The successful candidate will fully embrace our ethos of ‘Belong, Believe Achieve’ whilst bringing fresh ideas that will build on current strengths and achievements. We welcome application from applicants at all stages of their career. Whilst the post will ideally be for full-time hours, requests for part time / job share will be considered.
