Students experience a range of activities across tactical & strategic, technical & performance, fitness & healthy lifestyle and problem-solving areas of the curriculum.

We are looking for an experienced teacher who will contribute and add value to a busy and outstanding Department.

PE teachers at SJI International, in addition to the usual core PE teaching, are expected to play a full part in the co-curricular sporting life of the school as coaches (including team trials).
