Staff members work collaboratively together with each other and with students and parents to build strong relationships and improve outcomes for all.

Due to the promotion of the current postholder we are seeking to appoint an Assistant Curriculum Team Leader of PE (Leader of Boys’ PE) to join and contribute to the leadership of our very successful department.    We recognise and value the importance that Physical Education and school sport can have on the wellbeing and development of our students, and they make exceptional progress.  Their engagement in extracurricular PE activities is extremely high.  This is a perfect opportunity for a candidate looking to take the next step in leadership whilst making a lasting difference to young people’s lives. 

As Assistant Curriculum Team Leader, you will be joining an outstanding department which has an excellent reputation within the local area. The ability to teach boys’ PE is essential, and you will be expected to teach across the full age range and contribute to the teaching of academic courses which currently include GCSE PE, A Level PE, and Level 2 and 3 vocational courses. A commitment to further development and to participate in the school’s extra-curricular programme is essential.

The school has excellent sporting facilities, including a 3G pitch, sports hall, fitness suite, gym and extensive fields. In summer 2018, Congleton High School achieved the highest Progress 8 score in Cheshire and has an impressive track record of high academic achievement. The school has a strong Staff Development and Induction Programme embedded, and places high importance on the well-being of staff.

Continuing professional development for our Middle Leaders is at the core of everything we do and you would be joining an organisation which would offer numerous career developments to Senior Leadership and beyond.
