What skills and experience we're looking for

  • This is a permanent, full-time position and the successful applicant will be paid on the main professional scale. The successful applicant will be required to teach PE and Games to students in all year groups, including Years 12 and 13 and undertake the role of form tutor delivering a fortnightly lesson of Personal and Social Education. Experience of teaching GCSE and A-Level PE is less important than the willingness and ability to do so.
  • The position is effective from 1st September 2024.
  • The school has a modern sports hall on the main site along with new changing facilities and a modern, state of art fitness suite. The school’s playing fields are located on Trinity Road, under a mile from the main site, and include rugby pitches, a cricket square, tennis and netball courts and recently refurbished changing facilities.
  • All pupils in Years 7-11 have a weekly lesson of PE and together with Years 12 and 13 a double lesson of Games each week. Further details on the PE curriculum can be found on the school’s web site (www.keaston.bham.sch.uk)
  • The department offers an extensive range of opportunities for the pupils to participate in competitive matches against other schools. In rugby, hockey, cricket, football and athletics the school runs year group sides and enters teams in league and cup competitions.
  • We are seeking to appoint a committed and enthusiastic teacher who enjoys working as a member of a team, has an optimistic outlook and who is constantly seeking ways in which they can improve on their current practice. Applicants will be expected to have extensive knowledge or experience of teaching at least two of the school’s main sports (athletics, cricket, hockey and rugby) and be prepared to be involved in extra-curricular activities including fixtures on a Saturday morning.
  • The school expects all PE teachers to lead and run activities on the extra-curricular timetable of at least one pre-school, two lunchtime and two after school activities.
  • What the school offers its staff

    As a grammar school, we are privileged to work with able learners with a thirst for knowledge. It is equally important to note that successful applicants would join a school with kindness and integrity at the heart of our values system. We pride ourselves on being a friendly and inclusive school in which you can develop the love for your subject and share it with keen learners. Further benefits of working at Aston include a tailored CPD programme, opportunities for secondment with the MAT, a first-class free fitness studio and inspirational colleagues who share a passion for teaching.
