It’s about sharing your passion for sport, encouraging children to be more active, and to try new sports, as well as giving them the tools to improve physically and mentally. You will be helping children to develop stronger muscles and co-ordination; understand how the body works and how to keep healthy (i.e. importance of warm up/cool down exercises to reduce injuries etc.); develop healthy body image ideas; and improve confidence both in terms of playing sport and general life.

You will work as a part of a large and successful team delivering PE across the curriculum, including GCSE, level 2 vocational awards and A-level. You will have access to our fantastic facilities across the trust including a Swimming Pool, 3G Astroturf and multiple Sports Halls.

Energy, enthusiasm, positivity and a readiness to contribute to the full breadth of our provision are must-haves. You will be willing to go above and beyond for our students and community to support the trust’s vision in providing unique and equitable opportunities and experiences.
