Kendrick School is a high achieving selective school for girls aged 11 to 18 with students who are engaging, cooperative and eager to learn.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic, innovative and well qualified Teacher of Physical Education. Applicants need to be able to teach PE at KS3, GCSE and A Level. This position would suit either an experienced practitioner or an early careers teacher.

Physical education is an important subject in the development of young people. It enables them to develop a wide range of skills including communication, team-work, leadership, analysis, understanding of tactics and strategies, personal endeavour, decision making and knowledge of a wide range of sports.

In lessons students are given an understanding of how the body works and the importance of leading a healthy active lifestyle with the aim that they develop a habit of sport for life.

We believe that sport is inclusive and there is a sport for everyone and we aim to encourage young people to find that interest and passion and continue this beyond school.

This position will offer the opportunity to contribute to new innovations and developments in the PE Department, in terms of both curriculum design and learning and teaching as the school expands.

The successful candidate will have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact, both within and beyond the classroom.

Kendrick School is a welcoming, inclusive and happy community, with students who are engaging, cooperative and eager to learn. Benefits include free car parking, a contributory pension scheme, training and development and use of the swimming pool and sporting facilities.
