Job summary

 This is a dynamic PE department which welcomes a variety of approaches to the subject of Physical Education. The department is extremely experienced and is proud to boast a strong extra-curricular programme with a history of success, alongside a curriculum that is rich in depth but also variety. The successful candidate must be enthusiastic in developing their own pedagogy as well as making positive contributions to the continued development of the department as a whole. 

Physical Education and Sport at Park High School enjoy a wide range of facilities. We have a Sports Hall which hosts Basketball, Badminton and Volleyball fixtures. We teach Gymnastics and Table Tennis in a separate space and utilise two Netball courts for school fixtures. We use two 7-a-side 4G Astro-turf pitches to deliver Football throughout the winter whilst teaching in Centenary Park (which is accessible from the PE building) in the summer term. We are also lucky to have access to our own football pitch and cricket pitch, both of which are situated on land owned and used exclusively by Park High School. 

We teach all of our core PE lessons in mixed gender groupings where all classes experience the full range of activities we have on offer. At Key Stage 3 students are introduced to the concept of GCSE style assessment objectives through their practical assessment criteria. This mirrors the full spectrum of assessment on the GCSE PE course and is therefore not limited to practical performance. At Key Stage 4, in core lessons, all students take part in the Sports Leaders Award, NGB Awards and a First Aid course. 

Students can opt to study BTEC Sport or GCSE PE (AQA) at Key Stage 4. By running both courses, we can ensure that each student is placed on the course that best suits their style of learning and gives them the greatest chance of success. We also run an extremely successful A-Level PE programme (OCR) for those wishing to take their PE specific study further.
