Teacher of PE and Sport

Bishop's Hatfield Girls' SchoolHertfordshire

Required for April or September 2021, the school is seeking to appoint a well-qualified teacher of Physical Education. You will be required to teach across the age and ability range in a faculty that achieves excellent results and high standards.  A full range of enrichment clubs is offered and sports teams are fielded regularly for competitions at District and County level. Supporting, training and supervising these teams will be an integral part of the role.  We are looking for an enthusiastic and creative individual to join an outstanding and committed Health faculty which promotes “healthy minds in healthy bodies”. The ability to teach other subjects may also prove valuable – see our website for the full range of subjects offered at the school. We will discuss specific subject expertise at interview based on information provided in the application form. NQTs are welcome to apply.

This is an exciting opportunity to join the school at a time of growth and development.  Our Progress 8 and Attainment 8 figures are above average and we aim even higher!  

Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ School has 900 pupils on roll including the Sixth Form.  We are fully committed to our values of teamwork, respect, honesty, trust, kindness and ambition. In February 2016 the school successfully completed its sixth OFSTED inspection and was graded OUTSTANDING. On 1st January 2012, we converted to academy status and are now a company limited by guarantee. The school has recently benefited from a total rebuild on the same site and enjoys excellent facilities including a large sports hall.  BHGS holds International School Status and is a Fairtrade School.  Hatfield is within easy reach of London and other areas and the London Fringe Allowance is payable.

We give high priority to staff development and the school's Admissions’ Code gives priority places to children of staff. Staff are able to apply for our Professional Development Award which provides bursary payments to help finance CPD that goes beyond the school’s usual training programme.

Visitors frequently tell us that their first impression of the school is of a friendly, lively and stimulating community where we emphasise the importance of the individual’s contribution and take pleasure in sharing and celebrating achievement.  They commend the good behaviour of the girls and their thirst for knowledge. Bishop’s is a community that offers mutual support and encouragement and expects everyone within it to respect others’ cultures, religion and beliefs.  We hope that the values, self-discipline and sense of personal worth that girls gain here will be a support throughout their lives as British and Global Citizens. 

We take safeguarding of our students extremely seriously and an enhanced disclosure will be sought through the Disclosure and Barring Service as part of the school’s pre-employment checks.
