Required for November 2021, the Governors wish to appoint a highly qualified and dynamic temporary Teacher of Girls' PE to cover a maternity absence.

This post offers an excellent opportunity to work in a very good school (Ofsted Good with many outstanding features, Feb 2020) and within a successful and very popular department. This role would suit an enthusiastic NQT or an experienced professional looking to further their expertise. The flexibility to run clubs and attend fixtures, driving the School's minibus would be essential.

Female applicants would be desirable due to the gender of the current department staffing and the need to supervise female changing rooms.

About Barton Court Grammar School

Barton Court Academy Trust (BCAT) is a multi-academy Trust which was established in 2017.

It currently consists of two secondary schools: Barton Court Grammar School, an 11-18 years, mixed selective school in the heart of Canterbury, rated “Good” with many outstanding features by Ofsted in February 2020, and The Charles Dickens School, an 11-16 years mixed non-selective school in Broadstairs, which came out of special measures and is rated “Requires Improvement” by Ofsted in June 2019 and is a rapidly improving school. The Trust is also opening Barton Manor Free School, an 11 – 18 years non-selective mixed school in the heart of Canterbury on the former Chaucer School site in September 2022 to Year 7.

At BCGS, we promote the values of serving others, humility, achievement, respect and equality. We are a school which embraces our British heritage and British values. As a result, we welcome staff from a range of backgrounds and faiths to join our vibrant and inclusive environment.

Our focus is on achieving excellence in all that we do to support outstanding outcomes for all our students. This is evident in the way our community of students, parents, staff and governors all work together to provide an engaging learning environment so that each student thrives and achieves their full potential.

Subjects across the School benefit from having a team of highly competent and charismatic middle leaders. Exciting and innovative teaching is enabled by the scaffolding of colleagues’ skills through comprehensive continuous professional development which encompasses everything from bespoke workshops to the opportunity to observe colleagues, including our Leadership Team. Entirely committed to education, our facilities are second to none and include a shared Sports Hall and gym with Canterbury Christ Church University, a new block built in January 2018 which consists of 7 new Mathematics classrooms, 3 state-of-the-art Science Laboratories, new Kitchen/Servery and Canteen.

The School has a comprehensive well-being package which includes substantial CPD, access to the Canterbury Christ Church University gym at a subsidised rate, free lunch at Christmas and an end of Summer term barbeque, "Chocolate Fridays", cupcakes at the end of each term, mental health well-being afternoons, paid counselling sessions.
