We are looking to appoint a Head of Boys’ PE and Academic PE in a school which offers excellent opportunities for professional development. The new post-holder will be a strong classroom practitioner with a commitment to achieving the highest standards, both academically and in terms of the learning habits and personal dispositions of our students, and will have at least 2 years’ successful experience of teaching academic PE (GCSE or BTEC).
William Perkin Church of England High School is one of four Twyford Trust schools, and the new post-holder will be joining us at a time of exciting growth and development at the Trust. This post is ideally suited to a teacher who is ambitious to develop PE at the school and the new post-holder, working closely with the Head of Girls’ PE, will ensure that the quality of teaching and learning in the department is consistently high. Additionally they will be responsible for the delivery of a rich wider learning offer in PE.
William Perkin School has excellent sports facilities, a tremendous range of contacts with professional cricket, rugby and football clubs and has a commitment to community engagement in sport. The new post-holder, alongside the Headteacher and the PE team, will also contribute to the development of a ‘Youth Sports Development Hub’ for West London. There is a well-developed 14-19 academic curriculum offer including GCSE, A level and Btec qualifications. The outstanding sport facilities enable all Yr 7 - 11 students to experience a ‘sport afternoon’ with each student having an extended 100 minute session in the range of sports on offer. Particular focus will be given to the showcase team sports selected by the Sport Development Team – Cricket, Rugby, Football and Netball. After school in the ‘Extended Elective’ period from 4.00 - 5.30pm there will be ‘Sport for All’ programmes, alongside school team coaching and opportunity to join elite training programmes led by individuals with a very high level of sporting or coaching background. We serve our community by offering coaching and facilities to primary school children and delivering a full community-letting programme to selected anchor tenants.
We firmly believe that anyone who sees the school and meets the pupils and staff will be impressed by the strong community sense of purpose and desire to achieve.
