What skills and experience we're looking for

We are seeking to appoint a skilled teacher of PE, with the ability to teach Core PE throughout the school as well as examination courses at GCSE and A-Level by negotiation. We welcome applications from Early Careers Teachers and we offer a fully supported induction programme, tailored CPD and regular subject specific mentoring & whole school professional development.

The successful candidate will be a well-qualified and dynamic teacher, committed to raising students’ skills and willing to take an active part in the Faculty’s thriving extra-curricular programme. It would particularly suit candidates with an interest in Girls Football with opportunities for involvement in local community based projects.

PE is taught to all students throughout Key Stage 3; students have a 1 hour 40 minute lesson and a 50 minute lesson each week. At Key Stage 4, as well as Core PE which is taught to all students, GCSE PE is a very well subscribed option. The subject is also popular in the Sixth Form and several students go on to study PE or health-related courses at higher education each year. Examination outcomes at both GCSE and A-level are strong.

The PE Faculty comprises 6 full time staff and several part-time staff.

The Faculty teaching spaces comprise extensive grass playing fields, astro-turf pitch, outdoor tennis courts, sports hall, gymnasium, recently re-designed multi-gym and the faculty also has its own dedicated indoor classroom and IT suite.
