We are looking to appoint a well-qualified Teacher of Physical Education from September 2021. The ideal candidate should be able to teach a variety of sports with a particular focus on rugby. The Sport and PE Department also offers GCSE and BTEC Sport so experience of teaching to this level would be desirable.
The RGS has a national reputation that crosses many disciplines in the sporting arena. Old Boys include a host of full sporting internationals across a wide range of sports. The facilities at the school are outstanding, as is the level of support for sport by non-PE specialists.
We seek a teacher who cares deeply about the welfare and pastoral wellbeing of the young people in their care, and has a balanced sense of perspective and a good sense of humour. In exchange, we will welcome you, with the opportunity to teach some of the brilliant young gentlemen.

With its origins in the 13th Century, the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe, was granted a Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth I in 1562. Much has changed since, but RGS continues to enjoy a reputation as one of the leading state selective schools in the country having been consistently rated ‘outstanding’.
We have high academic standards, excellent examination results and consistently feature as one of the top 60 state schools in England. Almost all students progress to university with approximately 18 attending Oxford or Cambridge each academic year. We offer a huge range of co-curricular experiences, the extent of which is, I believe, unparalleled in the state sector.
Our innovative teachers deliver a high-quality classroom experience underpinned by our RGS Ethos of Learning. Exceptional pastoral care ensures that, in a large school, every boy is known as an individual.
We encourage all Wycombiensians to be self-confident, positive, healthy and enquiring young men who acquire the qualities of tolerance and respectfulness embodied through a modesty of manner.
Most of our students are day boys. Boarding, however, has a unique capacity to shape the lives of young people and RGS offers this provision to 70 boys as one of 40 state boarding schools. Boarding plays a substantial role within the life of the School.
To see the full range of activities undertaken at the school, we would encourage you to visit our website (www.rgshw.com).
