What skills and experience we're looking for

Do you have specialism in Athletics, Swimming and Rugby. We are seeking a dynamic Teacher of PE to join a highly motivated department to teach core and academic PE at all key stages. The energy and drive to promote extra-curricular opportunities within and beyond the College is essential. Experience of teaching Cambridge National Sport Studies, CTEC Sport and Physical Activity and GCSE PE is desirable. Teaching to A Level would also be an advantage.

The successful applicant will have the energy, enthusiasm and commitment to build on the team’s success and assist in taking the department forward in its delivery of an outstanding learning experience for all students.

What the school offers its staff

All staff are considered leaders within the college and given the opportunity to participate in the decision-making process through regular departmental, pastoral and staff meetings – and whole college events. Staff commitment is high and new teachers are expected to demonstrate similar commitment as well as high quality teaching and a willingness to contribute to the ethos and broader life of the college.

Relationships between staff and students here are excellent. We see evidence of this in the time which staff devote to giving students individual help out of classes and the time and energy they commit to trips. Our students are generally well motivated and responsible, and we receive many plaudits when they are out and about on visits. We are a fully comprehensive college, with plenty of able students who go on successfully to universities including Oxford and Cambridge.

We are very clear in our belief that the staff are our best resource, and invest a lot of time and resources in continuous professional development. We place a great deal of importance in supportingtrainee teachers andECTs. All of our ECTs have an individual mentor as well as mentoring from a senior member of staff in the College and a regular seminar programme. We do our very best to offer all our staff a continuous training programme as their career enters different stages from NQT through to preparation for middle and senior leadership, and then on eventually to headship. Our policy is to train our own staff who can then lead others.

We also use Incremental Coaching as the basis of regular developmental discussions for staff.

About Kingsbridge Community College
An outstanding learning community, where individuals thrive
Welcome to Kingsbridge Community College and thank you for your interest in our school.

We are passionate about learning and ensuring that our learners thrive and grow amidst our beautiful surroundings here in South Devon. We recognise the benefits a first class education brings and encourage our students to be ambitious and bold in their learning journey and to make the most of every opportunity. We are proud of the excellent teaching, care and guidance that we offer, along with first class facilities and a wide range of opportunities in and beyond the classroom. We are justifiably proud of our Outstanding Ofsted judgement, and routinely seek excellence in all that we do.

Year on year, our students attain at the very highest levels and we are proud of our position alongside the very best state comprehensive schools in the South West and nationally. Our examination results are outstanding and the significant majority of our students go on into our 6th Form and from there to university. KCC students are well prepared for their futures and are successful in gaining places at the universities of their first choice; these universities are also ranked among the best in the United Kingdom, indeed internationally, including Oxbridge. We ensure that our students are exceptionally well prepared to make choices about their future, whether that is higher education, training or employment.

We have a strong commitment to developing the whole child and providing a wealth of opportunities beyond the classroom. Our students regularly delight and amaze us with their talents, achievements and successess across a wide range of activities. We organise concerts, festivals, musical productions, plays, competitions, shows, exhibitions and leadership programmes for students and each year we reach national and regional finals in a range of sports and other extra-curricular activities.

We are a Teaching School and as such are committed to providing high quality training and development to new and experienced school staff, raising the standards of provision far beyond our own establishment. In September 2016 we became one of five national Research Schools through a joint project led by The National College for Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) and Education Endowment Foundation (EEF). This exciting programme will see the College further develop its use of evidence based practice and expertise across an alliance of schools.

I hope that what you have read gives you a sense of what we value most - an outstanding learning community where individuals thrive. If you wish to be part of our success as a parent, student, employee or friend please do not hesitate to make contact with us to find out more.
