The Cherwell School is a high performing and oversubscribed comprehensive school in Oxford (1990 students on roll, including 620 in the Sixth Form).  We achieved GCSE progress results in the top 5% of all schools in 2018.  We are pleased that we hold an ‘Outstanding’ rating by Ofsted as we feel this is a fair reflection of the school, not least as we recognise that we have the capacity to develop and improve further. We consider ourselves to be a school which has at its heart “opportunity, responsibility, excellence” and we aim to make this a deeper reality for all of our students and staff in the years to come.  Our aims are supported by our designation as a National Teaching School and as a School Centered Initial Teacher Training provider.  We are committed to the professional learning and career development of our staff and work in conjunction with the River Learning Trust to raise standards. 

We are seeking to appoint an inspirational Faculty Leader who is passionate about Physical Education and the success of young people across the ability range, in both academic and extra-curricular opportunities.  We are looking for someone who will have a positive impact both within their Faculty and at a whole-school level by working with other colleagues to raise standards of Attainment and Achievement, along with Learning and Teaching.  

Given the Teaching School status of the school, and our commitment to staff development, the successful candidate will have ample opportunity to develop their own professional learning.  This is a fantastic opportunity for an individual who is passionate about the provision of a rich learning experience for students. Should you wish to be part of our future we welcome your application.
