Would you like the opportunity to teach in an exceptionally successful PE department? Beaconsfield High School has been rated as one of the top twenty state schools in the country in relation to our success in school sport within the least two years. 

We are seeking to appoint a dynamic, creative and ambitious individual to join a strong and vibrant Physical Education department. An ability to coach hockey or netball to an elite level is required. The post would suit an NQT or an experienced teacher.

The successful candidate will be given the opportunity to teach PE students of all abilities across key stages 3 and 4 in a range of different activities, and potentially examination classes at key stage 4-5 dependent on experience. You need to foster a collaborative approach, be prepared to work as a member of a team, have good inter-personal skills and deliver lessons that will inspire our learners to succeed. You should have an understanding of what makes an outstanding and successful learning environment for students of all abilities. We are seeking to appoint an individual who can provide opportunities in an enthusiastic and enjoyable environment, while offering the opportunities for progress along the pathway to excellence for our more talented students.

The PE curriculum is well supported by an extensive range of extra-curricular activities offered both at lunchtime and after school. Club activities encourage a large membership irrespective of ability, but from the clubs, students are selected to join squads who have further training sessions to prepare them for inter school competition. We hope to reach National Finals each year in Netball, Gymnastics, and Swimming, with hockey also now prevailing as one of our top sports too. 

We are therefore seeking to appoint a candidate that will be willing to participate fully in the programme of extra-curricular activities and essentially one who has experience of coaching hockey or netball to a high standard.
