What skills and experience we're looking for

We are looking to appoint a well-qualified and passionate teacher to our excellent Physical Education team. This is an exciting opportunity to work within a high achieving school, with mature and well behaved students and where Physical Education is highly valued as a core subject. The appointed applicant will be part of a department that teaches all our students through to GCSE, and retains strong numbers through to A Level.

This post would suit an application from an early career teacher who would benefit enormously from strong mentoring, or alternatively from an experienced teacher who is looking to develop their skills in a new setting. The successful candidate will need to be able to teach across all age ranges and abilities up to and including A Level. The ability to teach another subject would be desirable but not essential.

The newly appointed candidate will be working in a committed and successful team which regularly achieve success at city and regional level. We have invested heavily in our Physical Education facilities. Students have access to large and well maintained playing fields, a newly refurbished astro-turf, modernised changing facilities and a well equipped sports centre which includes its own fully fitted gym. The school has a strong tradition of extra-curricular provision which we are determined to maintain. Therefore, it is crucial that the applicant shares this commitment.

What the school offers its staff

The King’s (The Cathedral) School is a highly successful coeducational academy in Peterborough with a strong family ethos and highly motivated students. Within the local region, the school is extremely popular and consistently heavily oversubscribed. Examination results have been very strong at all levels and the school prides itself on providing students with a rich and well-rounded education based on Christian values.

Further details about the role

A letter of application and completed application, including two referees, should be sent to Mr John Harrison by midday on Monday 15 April with interviews scheduled the week beginning 22 April.

Early applications would be appreciated and informal tours welcome.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment.

The King’s (The Cathedral) School fully recognises the responsibility it has under section 175 of the Education
Act 2002 (as amended), the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 (as amended) and Education
and Training (Welfare of Children) Act, 2021 to have arrangements in place to safeguard and promote the
