What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking an outstanding individual with drive, passion, enthusiasm and ambition to lead our large, successful and very experienced PE Department. This is an opportunity for an excellent classroom practitioner with strong subject knowledge and experience at teaching across KS3 to KS5 to take our PE department and outcomes to the next level.

You will have excellent organisational, planning and communication skills and have high expectations of all students to secure the best outcomes. You believe that all students are capable of success and recognise that success comes in different forms. Driving forward strategic priorities you will ensure there is a robust curriculum and assessment framework in place.

As a leader you are inspirational, forward thinking and put students at the heart of everything you do. You are creative, dynamic, empathetic and have a natural ability to lead and empower both students and staff. You hold the highest expectations of yourself, your staff and your students and recognise the importance of the curriculum both inside and outside the classroom, and are innovative in your commitment to both, ensuring that PE always has a high profile within the college.

If you know this is the role for you and are confident you can lead our successful, supportive and highly motivated PE team, then please apply.
