What skills and experience we're looking for

Teacher of Physical Education MPS/UPS FULL TIME - Required for the September 2023, an enthusiastic and talented Teacher of Physical Education to teach classes across Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. We are excited to build our team and are looking to appoint to our successful PE department. The department is currently made up of ten members of staff. Our team of specialists enjoy excellent facilities including a Sports Hall, two gymnasiums and a fitness suite. Ample field space plus a 400m redgra running track and tennis courts. There is outstanding extracurricular provision. We also use the great facilities in the local area which include East Grinstead Hockey Club, East Grinstead Cricket Club and K2 Climbing. We are committed to building our community events and have regular festivals with local schools where our Sports Leaders take a large role in organisation.

Our GCSE results are consistently strong with extremely positive progress 8 scores. Our A level progress is at the top end of all local authority providers. We offer AQA Physical Education A Level and the OCR Cambridge Technical Extended Certificate in Sport and Physical Activity in Key Stage 5 to a comprehensive Sixth Form of around 350 students. At Key Stage 4 (years 9-11) we offer AQA GCSE PE and the CNAT Certificate in Sports Studies as well as nonexam core PE. All students receive two hours of PE a week in Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.

High value is placed on providing ongoing professional development and engaging in educational research. We are looking for someone with the skills, enthusiasm and ambition to join our team and to achieve our ambitious aims for all of our students.

What the school offers its staff

Sackville is a popular and oversubscribed large, mixed, 11-18 comprehensive with 1700 students on roll. It is an exceptionally friendly and supportive community built on strong relationships which allow every student to thrive. We invest in our staff, enabling them to pass on their knowledge and love of their subject such that our students are given the very best experience and opportunities to succeed. We have acquired a deserved reputation for fighting for every child, to support every student in achieving their full potential and developing a lifelong love of learning.

Our academic standards are high, and our students make good progress with Progress 8 being significantly above average in recent years. We regularly have students achieve places at Oxbridge, with many more going on to Russell Group and other universities. However, as a truly inclusive and comprehensive school, we are equally proud of the students who successfully move on to apprenticeships, and into employment or training to meet their personal ambitions.

Already a ‘Leading Edge’ school, the SSAT have awarded us for our work on Professional Learning, Principled Curriculum Design, Engaging with Evidence and Research and Leadership Through Moral Purpose. Developing our teaching and learning is an ongoing priority and staff really value the collaboration our professional learning groups provide with regular opportunities to share good practice through evidence-based research and pedagogy. In our professional journal, our teachers write about some of their research.

"Our vision is for a safe and inclusive community that enables every student to reach their full potential and develop a love of learning, by living our values every day".
